Business : The decision was taken to postpone next month’s meeting by one week because of the school holidays. The next meeting will be on Friday 10 October at 7:30pm.
Discussion : Those of us who’d read The Wild Places by Robert MacFarlane really enjoyed the beautiful poetic language he uses to describe the untamed places in Britain that he visits, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends or family. Vic wondered if it would still appeal to those who are not British and for whom the book brought up memories. The answer was a resounding ‘Yes’.
