Prestbury Coffee Morning

Saturday 5th August, 10.30am – 12.00noon

As ever, the legendary toasted teacakes will be on offer! There will also be a raffle, cakes and books for sale. Plenty of conversation guaranteed!


Reading Group

'The next meeting of the Reading Group will take place at 7.30 pm on Wednesday 23 August 2017 at Prestbury URC.  
The book we are currently reading is 'Birdcage Walk' by Helen Dunmore. Set at the same time as the French Revolution, Lizzie Fawkes has recently married John Diner Tredevant.  As a property developer who is heavily investing in Bristol's housing boom he has everything to lose from social upheaval and the prospect of war. Diner believes that Lizzie's independent, questioning spirit must be coered and subdued as she 'belongs to him' and she should live as he wants. It is a tense drama of public and private violence, resistance and terror.
New members and/or past members would be most welcome. For any further information contact Mary Cummings
