Report

I now have the June poetry club details, and poems produced by some of our members to be attached. Bob Fenner has now joined us, and has e mailed his to me, so I will try and forward his direct to you, (hopefully !).

There was a fine afternoon discussing, and reading Jean Corams choice of Robert Frost, an American poet. Everyone agreed he was an excellent choice, his poems were very descriptive, and in fact we read quite a few examples of his work.

Discussion was also under way for the proposed Poetry evening at Harfest, Sept. 13th Thurs at the Hall, an evening of two halves :- first half poems, either our own or our choices, cabaret style, with refreshments at half time, followed by a one-act play (by Bob Fenner).  Everyone is very keen, and looking forward to it.

As usual tea/coffee and cakes were served (courtesy of Nick) and the afternoon seemed to go very quickly. There was nearly a full compliment of us, with Veronica from Chippenham,( who incidentally brought us a copy of a poem by an African child, that we all thought was worth including in the report)  Absent were, from the village Rita Croft and Brenda Linsell  due to health problems, and Aura Fuller who had double booked !!
