Our Reading Group inspires and informs; stimulating new thoughts and ideas in a relaxed and friendly environment. We will cover a range of interesting texts with the opportunity for you to have your say in open group discussions. You can sit back, relax and just take in these wonderful works of literature if you so wish, however, if you would like the chance share your favourite texts with the group, you are more than welcome to do so. Reading Fun has your well-being in mind as we laugh and learn together.
