About the Group:
We are a friendly informal group, meeting in each others homes once a month on a Wednesday afternoon from 2.30 and share opinions on any topics that group members bring up, or if possible the group gets advance notice to get more information on a topic. We have exchanged thoughts on funding the NHS, Prisons, Care for the Elderly, Fracking, Knife Crime, Immigration, Education, Trump and many more, and haven't yet discussed climate change, plastics and waste disposal. The list is endless, so do join us and share any views on issues that interest you. 

When and where?
Meetings are held approximately every third TUESDAY afternoon in the month, from 2.30pm, in members' homes

September 2021

The meeting covered Afganistan, labour leadership, future funding of the NHS, the future of schooling, and the effectiveness of extinction rebellion. Plenty for 3 hrs!

July 2021

Alison hosted our second proper meeting this year, and Denise brought to our attention the many ways in which our actions can bring about benefits to the earth, and she has forwarded some interesting websites etc. for more information. We also discussed the litter problem and how to approach people you see behaving in an anti social way. Also we briefly discussed what effect the way a person speaks has on us, politicians in particular, and how deserving the Afgans who worked with us are to be allowed to escape to this country.


First meeting 2021!

We were delighted that, on Wednesday 30th June, we were able to hold our first face to face meeting for 15 months. Six of us discussed Holidays in the UK, protecting everyone with the jab, and the future of the monarchy.

October 2019

Thanks to Vivien for hosting. Five of us discussed global warming, over population, which countries are better than Britain, Brexit's effects and the future, and should the American woman return to face justice. A lively meeting.
