Our members all come from in and around the characterful town of Nantwich and very vibrant village of Audlem, and our meetings are fortnightly. We meet in each other's homes, usually on a Monday evening. Nantwich and Audlem group was formed many years ago and is a welcoming and friendly group of people. Our numbers continue to increase, and we have recently welcomed two new members, so we are now a group of 31. Everyone is involved in programme planning, and as many members as would like to are encouraged to help organise activities or support the Local Organiser. We rotate the role of Local Organiser so that she always has a 'deputy' who will then take over the role the following year, but it is purely voluntary. Meetings are very varied and the latest additions to the programme up until November 2018 is now posted on this website. There is a wide variety on offer, including some thought provoking discussions and some fun discussions, trips to the lovely local theatre (Nantwich Players), a summer walk, a bring your own BBQ for members and partners, a talk from a paramedic and one from a member who was lucky enough to spend several weeks touring New Zealand with a friend in a 1920s Lagonda. There will also be a trip to Renishaw Hall in Derbyshire during the summer months. Even the next programme planning meeting is being enlivened with a cheese and wine quiz to encourage creativity, and we will be pitting our wits against other groups nationally in the national Telephone Trail quiz in November. We have just restructured our rather ad hoc arrangements to meet others for coffee. We will be working our way through as many of the coffee shops and tea rooms in the area as possible on at least one non-NWR meeting day a month, on a purely informal basis just to enjoy the company and chat, naturally with cake involved….. We have a book group with twelve members, meeting every six weeks. The books are chosen by the group and we have read all sorts of different authors, always followed by some lively discussions, but there is no pressure to be a literary expert! And finally, one of our members has established a 'twinning' with Illawara group near Sydney, Australia, so we enjoy regular news updates from them and an exchange of programme ideas. Kate Lawler
