At their recent planning meeting Tarvin Meeting Point decided on their new progamme to carry them through until March next year. Local Organiser Nicola Doubt said "Before each planning meeting we sometimes wonder if we will find enough topics to discuss, but we always manage to create a wonderful and varied programme of topics, both serious and light hearted. This coming season is no exception"
Tarvin Meeting Point used to be part of the National Women's Register organization and has been part of village life for nearly half a century. In that time the group has discussed a huge number of topics, but the rapidly changing world always gives rise to new issues or new ways of looking at old problems
One new innovation that has proved popular recently has been to look in depth at a foreign country and then read a novel by one of that country's authors. Chile and Nigeria provided some very stimulating discussions in the past and for this season, Turkey has been chosen. One member said "You can get more out of a novel when you can place the story, and the author, in a wider cultural and historical setting".
Other topics to be looked at are the traditions of Gypsies throughout the world, the ethos and works of the Quaker Chocolate families, and, a look at the importance of fire throughout history. On a more light hearted note there will be a quiz, a sherry/fizz tasting and a look at Christmas/New Year customs around the world. This last one after an excellent Christmas party of course! The group has also decided to take a stall in the forthcoming Tarvin Christmas Festival.
In keeping with the National Women's Register tradition, topics are researched by members who then contribute to the discussion. Meetings are held fortnightly in member's homes. For more information call Sue Hardacre on 01829 741962
