Hartlepool: 1 December 2016

Group Name & Location: Hartlepool PoaP Central Library

Event Date: 1st Dec

Summary:

We gathered for Tunnocks Teacakes, Tea and poetry on a surprisingly mild, unwintery afternoon for our last Pass on a Poem of 2016.  Although no theme had been set there was a Christmassy feel to the poetry. As always the readings led to discussion of the state of the world, the morality of men (and women) and finally reminiscences of childhood winters and christmases.

Date of next event: Feb 2nd 4pm

    That is a very good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
    Simple but very precise info… Appreciate your sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  2. Our next meeting coincides with Harry Potter Night …it will be a little more chaotic than usual in the library but that will not bother us one little golden snitch…if you would care to bring along some magical poetry that would be fantastic. Feel free to come dressed as Severus Snape too if the urge so grabs you…
