Wine and Cheese evening a great success

On February 10th. The Friends of Quarry threw a wine and cheese party at the Coach House.

All the tickets were sold and despite the snow and ice the evening was a great success. Pete Joshua kindly played his guitar throughout the evening and this created a pleasant, relaxed ambience. We were very grateful to him. People said how much they had enjoyed catching up with neighbours and seeing members in an atmosphere less formal than that of the AGM.

Hopefully this will become an annual event to cheer us up in the dark days of February.

Book Club

A Quarry Reading Group has recently been set up. Reading groups can give us the opportunity to reflect more on the books we read, to read a wider variety of titles and the opportunity to meet new people locally and make friends.

We are using the Oxfordshire County Libraries’ Reading Groups service, which gives us hundreds of titles from which to select.

The group is full at present, but do contact us ( if you would like guidance for starting up a group of your own.
