Book Banter. Third Friday of the month. 2 - 3pm
If you are new to book groups, then this is the book group for you. The topic will always be 'what I am reading at the moment' and we are hoping to get members to sign up for 'reading ahead', so they get a certificate and presentation event after they've read 6 items - books, magazines, eBooks - just to add to the fun.


Knit and Natter. Every Friday. 10.30 – 12noon
Everyone is welcome from experienced knitters to beginners. Library knitting groups offer improved health and wellbeing and a lively group of new friends for all ages and abilities. Did you know knitting has therapeutic qualities similar to meditation? Research shows it can help prevent and manage stress and pain.
