A great afternoon enjoyed by all
Five members of the Nantwich book club, Books n Banter, arrived in Church Minshull to share their usual meeting with the village. They were sorry that their numbers were down due to illness but this did not deter them from their usually lively banter.
The book this month was called " No I Don't Want To Join A Book Club" by Virginia Ironside.
We were joined by three village residents who were equally keen to join in the discussion. Many of the ladies felt they could relate to many aspects of the book but the men were not so sure. The question was asked, how would the topics differ if it had been written by a man! The subject of retirement and at what age are we really retired was discussed. Does this mean when we finish paid employment or when we finish looking after grandchildren and elderly parents and when we finish serving on committees and doing voluntary work. A couple in the book face issues concerned with terminal illness and this also prompted some discussion.
Although we all agreed that the book is somewhat shallow and superficial it nevertheless provided us with plenty to talk about over tea and biscuits. The Nantwich group will meet again on the 24th October at 2pm at The Globe pub in Nantwich. The book for discussion is Jacques by Tanya Ravenswater and everyone is welcome to join.

It may take a few years but eventually I will be able to make my absolute favourite scented chutney. Needless to...
