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 – firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com for more information.
