The Bookworms


Good news all book lovers, The Brentwood Belles WI Bookworms has relaunched! We felt the atmosphere in the pub with the distracting background music and occasional revellers , although welcoming, wasn’t really ideal for a book group. Meetings are hosted at Annette’s home in Brentwood where we can discuss books in a relaxed environment.  We meet on TUESDAY evenings, roughly once a month or so.  We’ll agree the next date at each meeting.

We enjoy reading  a variety of material, everything from ‘chicklit’ to the classics and we suggest books on a particular theme or genre to choose from at each meeting.

We are always happy to welcome new members (Brentwood Belles members only) and have a lovely social circle just waiting for you to join! If you enjoy reading and can spare one Tuesday evening about once a month then why not come along? If you can’t make the meetings, you can always join our bookworms Facebook group.   Please email –  if you would like to join us.


During the time of Covid-19 , the Bookworms group are joining together for regular Zoom meetings and on the Bookworms Online Facebook page.  Either click on the group and ask to join, or email for more information.
