First news of one bookclub:
We zoomed for the first time on 20 April and our May, June and July meeting were also zooms. In August and September we met in members’ gardens and hope to do this again in October – restricting the numbers to 6. The lesser number has worked because members are away — or in the case of our latest book from the Library Collection, hasn’t been greeted with much enthusiasm!
The full service from Oxford has now resumed and I think what we do in the future depends on whether we feel zoom is a satisfying substitute for meeting face to face. We’ll need to decide at our October meeting, and also comply with government restrictions if/as the pandemic spreads.
Met in Annie’s garden just before the rule of 6 came in. Next gathering at Sue C’s (Monday 5th October) will be a 2 tier affair – 1 session 2-3 and 2nd 3-4 so that we can keep to 6 total. Annie is co-ordinating.
If all goes well we will repeat this for the evening of October 21st at Helen’s.
Travelling independently and booking sessions, some meet for coffee afterwards. Then of course once a month (3rd Monday) there is chance for a full english breakfast at Root One!
