Happy birthday to us!

We are turning five years-old this January, and to celebrate we are having a five year-old’s birthday party…

There will be sausages on cocktail sticks in a foil covered potato, birthday cake and all those party games we played as children, including a Pass the Parcel.

Please bring a small plate and a beaker or mug, and don’t forget your glad rags!

Finally, we would love to see how cute you were when you were five, so please bring a photo and we will try to guess which one is you! Just drop it in the box as you come in.

See you soon!

High five!

This Month: We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by James Robertson

Rosemary’s young, just at college, and she’s decided not to tell anyone a thing about her family. So we’re not going to tell you too much either: you’ll have to find out for yourselves, round about page 77, what it is that makes her unhappy family unlike any other.

Rosemary is now an only child, but she used to have a sister the same age as her, and an older brother. Both are now gone – vanished from her life. There’s something unique about Rosemary’s sister, Fern. And it was this decision, made by her parents, to give Rosemary a sister like no other, that began all of Rosemary’s trouble. So now she’s telling her story: full of hilarious asides and brilliantly spiky lines, it’s a looping narrative that begins towards the end, and then goes back to the beginning. Twice.

It’s funny, clever, intimate, honest, analytical and swirling with ideas that will come back to bite you. We hope you enjoy it, and if, when you’re telling a friend about it, you do decide to spill the beans about Fern – it’s pretty hard to resist – don’t worry. One of the few studies Rosemary doesn’t quote says that spoilers actually enhance reading.

Walk ‘n’ Talk: Every Last Sunday at 10:00

An invitation from Hayley

We are a friendly group who enjoy walking. We meet in most weathers on the last Sunday of the month at 10am for a walk approximately 4-6 miles long and we always have a refreshment break involving cake! If you would like to explore footpaths and beautiful places close to home that you may not have noticed before and all within an hours drive of Beeston. Please do come and join us – we can’t wait to welcome you!
