Bringing people together

Poetry for Pleasure

This group meets to read poetry together, to discuss what we read, discover poets old in time but new to some of us and also find out about new voices of the 21st century. Above all, our aim is to enjoy poetry and sometimes compose our own poems!

Each member of our poetry group takes an active part in each session, although one member plans the theme and presents poems for us to read and discuss.

Meetings resume in September 2021 at the start of the Ash u3a 2021-2022 year following the lifting of COVID restrictions.
