Tuesday, 27 May 2014 - 7:30pm !0 years of the East Coker Poetry Group - a Poetry Party

The East Coker Poetry Group was 10 years old in May.  What better way to celebrate than have a poetry party.

Tuesday, 29 April 2014 - 7:30pm A Poem and a Picture

This meeting was a mix of poems and images.  The range and variety of poems/images made for a fascinating evening.

Tuesday, 25 March 2014 - 7:30pm Lyrical Dining

"Lyrics in Popular Songs"  -  to accompany a meal.

This was a topic we covered a few years ago and it was felt that there is still a huge wealth of material to be used including anything from Cole Porter to The Beatles. 

Heather and Julie did well keeping the evening together despite difficulties with the delay in serving the meal.

However it was a light-hearted and rather different meeting and it cheered a Winters evening.
