Our village book group met on Tuesday afternoon. As we do not have books sent to us in January we decided to discuss our 10 favourite books. It proved to be good fun as people talked about the books they remembered from childhood and from school.
Some people talked about the books that they had won as prizes at Sunday School and books that brought back memories of special times in their lives.
Our book for February is the first book in Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels, My Brilliant Friend.

From the Kirkby on Bain Annual Village Meeting sub-committee:
Penny, Martin and I had a very useful planning meeting last week. Learning from the success of last year’s event, we thought it would be a good idea to feature a few short presentations again, so we are working on some ideas for topics and speakers. We have also invited Victoria Atkins MP to come along as keynote speaker.
Apart from presentations and discussion, Penny came up with the idea of a bake-off competition, in which up to 10 anonymous bakers produce a tray bake to be cut up and everyone gets to taste a slice with a cup of tea or coffee and award marks out of 10. Martin has offered to organise a photographic competition, and he has already come up with a format for us to consider.
We now need your ideas! If you have a topic you would like to talk or hear about, or if you have any other ideas about what we might squeeze into a lively couple of hours or so, please contact any of us as soon as possible.
