Reading 2: We meet at Caldy Valley Church and Centre, on the first Friday afternoon each month. Books are provided by Cheshire library, and members take it in turn to review that month's selection. This leads into a discussion where everyone has the opportunity to give their views and opinions. Over refreshment we share any news about films, library events and such like that might be of special interest.

Story Telling: The aim of the Storytelling group is to enjoy the age-old art of telling stories to each other. Hearing and telling stories stimulates the imagination and connects us to others. Members of the group will tell tales, old and new, from around the world, develop and practise telling their own tales. We meet on alternate Wednesday mornings.
