Dear Members,

Hi to all members and group leaders - as I write this we have the anticipation of the first snow of the season and trying to keep warm in the very cold temperatures. I do hope you have all been able to do this and that you have kept healthy over the end of 2022.

I hope that your groups have been running smoothly and that we start 2023 in a positive state, ready for another year of ongoing learning, and sharing, together. Do please contact me if you have thoughts of a new group and we can 'put it out there' to see if other members would like to be a part of it.

Or if there is anything else, do please let me know. If you make any changes to the day/time/ location of your group, please advise so we can update the web site and database accordingly.

Jan Dixon Groups co-ordinator


This is a restart of a group that ran pre-lockdown.

The idea is to write your life story in small easy stages that will make into a collection for your own amusement, to pass to younger generations or to heal your past.

Taking a topic each month and writing under 1000 words to share with the group. Topics could be ‘My First Day at School’ ‘Best Holiday’ ‘Childhood Games and Toys’ ‘My Wedding’ ‘My First Car’ ‘ My First Job’

Meetings will be held in South Tonbridge (5 minutes walk from The Angel Centre). Meetings will be on the 4th Monday of each month.

The first meeting will be 27 March 2023 at 10.30am

If you are interested in joining this small group please contact Liz. (Contact details in Handbook)
