This month’s meeting will take place on 28 June, to enable our first “in person” meeting for a long time and hopefully the first of many. It will also be broadcast through Zoom for those who can’t be there in person.
Royal Wells Hotel, upstairs room.
Get yourself a drink at the downstairs bar, if you like, before the meeting which starts at 8.00 pm.
Hooray for a real live poet in the room! Enjoy it!
