Gorgeous cake was consumed as were tangerines, chocolate coins and pulling of crackers....the meetings are always interesting and a real sense of camaraderie was experienced.....looking forward to our next meeting in February 2018!
A rainy Autumnal evening was brightened up by our first meeting with new hosts and a wonderful group of people.

Animated conversations sprang up and I was impressed with the groups sensitivity towards topics and each other. Conversations became profound, exploratory and there was also laughter....in fact time went so quickly we all felt we could have talked and shared ...
