Meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 2.00pm in a member’s home in Bude. What do we do? We write short stories and sometimes do little exercises that help with inspiration, plots and layouts. And, we chat a lot! The stories, written at home, vary in length, usually from 500 to 1000 words. They are fairly short because we each read them to the group and receive short written comments from them. The criteria for comments are set…

Meets on the 3rd Friday of each month in a member’s home with many field trips.

Meets on the last Thursday of each month at 2.30pm in a member’s home or out on a field trip. Serendipity is the discovery, by chance, of pleasing and/or interesting things!  So, in our Serendipity 2 Group, we don’t plan things too far ahead.  We are open to members’ suggestions and then learn a great deal at our meetings about our local landscapes, community and sometimes ourselves from either visiting places or doing something constructive, for instance crafts or discussion…

An event every month that begins at 10:30 am on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely

Meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 10.30am in a member’s home. Despite the rather dry-sounding name of our group, we are kept young and lively by the excitement of looking into poems as if they were deep rock-pools, with different things swimming around inside them. We take it in turns to choose a poet, and then select half a dozen or so of their poems, with every member having a chance to look at them in advance…

We take it in turns to choose a poet, and then select half a dozen or so of their poems, with every member having a chance to look at them in advance…
