The next meeting of the garden group will be at Sandal
library on Monday 12nd March at 2.00pm. If you have any
plants you would like to swap, bring them along. Also
if there is a garden you would like us to visit this
year, please bring details. I am hoping to arrange a
trip to the Harrogate Spring Show on Sunday 29 April

Myth and Religion in the Ancient World.
The title of my course for the forthcoming term is
Myth and Religion in the Ancient World. It will run
from 11 January to 15 March. It will be held in the
house of a group member. It will include Greek religion,
Roman religion, the Mystery religions, Myth and the
Gospels and Religion without myth. For further information
ring 01226 283863.
We are a small group of 8 people who enjoy poetry.
We meet at Agbrigg Community Centre fortnightly on Tuesday
afternoons 2 - 4. We have been running now for two years.
There is possibly room for two more members. This is
not a poetry writing class, or indeed, a class in any
sense. It is simply a group of like minded people with
a love of poetry in all its forms. The group is quite
informal and very good humoured. A theme is decided
amongst ourselves and each member brings two poems on
that theme to the next meeting. They are read out and
then we have a short, emphasise short, discussion. We
cover everything from John Clare to Pam Ayres. So if
you like poetry and don’t take yourself too seriously
you might like to give it a try.
WELL, IT’S ABOUT TIME
This 8 week course will be run again by David Leyshon
commencing on Thursday 5th April 2018 at 10.30 – 12.30
in the Baptist Church, Barnsley Road. What is Time?
How is it measured? How do humans and animals experience
it? How has it affected societies and how did we get
out calendar? These and other questions will be the
focus of the course. A charge of £9 will be made to
cover rent. Please contact David on 01924 249686 to
express your interest.
