At their fourth Literary Lunch, the WI Reading Group welcomed fellow – members , partners and friends to hear a talk by Tessa West.
After a delicious lunch prepared by the Group, Tessa entertained the company by telling them about her life and how she got into writing. She lives in Glemsford now and has published three novels set in East Anglia, a book of poetry and a biography of John Howard , the prison reformer. Having started life as a Primary School teacher and also teaching English in prisons, she has plenty of material for her work. By reading passages from her books, Tessa gave us an insight into the kinds of novels she writes and to the ideas behind the stories.
There were lots of questions from the audience and a chance to chat to Tessa and each other, as well as an opportunity to buy books.
Another Yoga class is planned for Wickhambrook, starting in September. For two years, Chrissie Bond of Lilypond Yoga has been running a class on Friday mornings in the WI Hall at 9.30am. This was organised by the WI, but it is for everyone, members or not. We have several members from nearby villages, men as well as women. Chrissie's class is very popular and suitable for all levels of expertise. Her motto is 'Be kind! You can always be kind' and we have all flourished and improved in this atmosphere. We do not have a time/date for the new class, but it will be in the daytime. If you would like to join in with either of the classes, please contact Chrissie on firstname.lastname@example.org or Dorothy on email@example.com or phone 01440 820376. There will be posters up on the noticeboard shortly.
