Book Clubs

There are two book clubs in the Village.

New Wendlebury Book Club
This club takes place monthly in The Lion pub and is open to anyone who’s interested in broadening their reading and discussing books they’ve read. We have no particular genre in mind and everyone takes turns choosing the next book for the group to read and starting us off with their thoughts. Our discussion is informal, sharing opinions and thoughts about the book, nothing more highbrow.

We meet 7.30pm in the dining room upstairs in the Cub’s Cottage area of The Lion pub, when available. Otherwise ask at the bar and they’ll let you know where in the pub to head for.

For further information or to register your interest, please contact Cicely Kerr (

Wendlebury Book Group
In September 2006 a small group of us got together to form a book group. This was after we discovered a mutual passion for reading and regularly talking about books we had read and swapping books. We rapidly grew to a group of ten who meet once a month to discuss a book. One person chooses a book we read it and meet at that persons house the following month and discuss the book. Sometimes we use discussion guidelines other times we just have a general discussion.

While we do not want to be exclusive we feel that the membership is currently at its maximum both in terms of manageability and the logistics of fitting into someone’s home. If you are interested in setting up another group we would be happy to advise and put you in contact with others who might want to join. If you would like to know any more please contact Lindsay Daulton 248651
