Book groups

We currently have two book groups:
Tuesday and Friday

Tuesday Book Group

This group meets at 1:30pm on the first Tuesday of the month. It uses the Christchurch-based Book Discussion Scheme (BDS). BDS supplies the book sets, up to a maximum of 12, allowing all group members to read the same book at the same time. This leads to good discussions. BDS has a current and extensive catalogue. You can read more about the BDS at

The cost per year is approximately $60 per person, and the group will meet in private homes. This is an excellent way of extending what you read.

The convenor is Lena Metcalf.

Friday Book Group

This new group meets at 10am on the last Friday of the month.

The convenor is Barbara Crampton.
