Future discussions will include such topics as:

We try to have a mix of light-hearted and serious topics and everyone gets an opportunity to air their views, making an interesting and lively afternoon.
2020 Report: View
Our Monday afternoon Discussion Group has been going well via Zoom since the middle of May last year. There were a few technical hitches at first but now we are very well organized and even had a meeting in December instead of our usual meal out. It has been good to see the group and everyone seems to be coping well with the restrictions that we are living under at the moment. Maybe when we have all had our 2nd dose of the vaccine, we may even be able to meet up again - in person. Something to look forward to. Our topics are usually very topical, as in January when we discussed "What leads people to believe in conspiracy theories".
2019 Report: View
We have 12 members in the Monday Discussion Group with a usual attendance of
about 10. Members take it in turns to host and chair the meeting, introducing the
subject to be discussed, followed by everyone giving their thoughts on the topic. The
internet has proved very helpful with research.
The topics to be discussed are suggested by the members of the group and the programme arranged for the year. We have a break in August and a meal out in December. Discussions are usually lively, have been informative, and make for an interesting afternoon.

Should we have a people’s vote on Brexit?
It is wise – or would you choose to escape to the Country?
