Cherwell & Avon Book Group

Three of our OUSoc Bristol and Bath members have set up the Cherwell & Avon Book Group. We aim to keep meeting every third Sunday after that, and will rotate the book choices among the group.

Unless indicated otherwise, the meetings take place at the Widcombe Social Club (bottom of Widcombe Hill).  There is parking on nearby roads for free on Sundays.

It would be great to meet some of you at these groups, to share our love of books and recover from the weekend (or brace yourself for the week ahead) over a glass of wine!

If you would like to join us please let us know so we have an idea of numbers, by emailing annasabine-newlyn@mpc.email.

Many thanks,
Anna (Wadham, 98-01),
James (Kellogg, 2012-14), and
Deborah (Worcester, 81-84)
