December social


It’s our last event of 2016 so it would be great to see you at our December social on Thursday 1st December.

After a few heavy reads this year, we’ve decided we won’t do any formal book club discussion. But if you do want to read something and share your thoughts over a drink then some of us are reading Jilly Cooper’s latest book – MOUNT*

Even if you don’t read the book, do come along for a drink and a chat.

*A taster of ‘MOUNT’…”Rupert is consumed by one obsession: that his adored grey horse be proclaimed champion stallion. He longs to trounce the stallion owned by his detested rival Cosmo Rannaldini. This means abandoning his racing empire (Penscombe), and his darling wife Taggie, and chasing winners in races around the world. Luckily, the fort at home is held by Rupert’s assistant Gav, a genius with horses, fancied by every stable lass, but damaged by alcoholism and a vile wife. When Gala, a grieving but ravishing widow moves to Penscombe as carer for Rupert’s wayward father, it is not just Gav who is attracted to her. A returning Rupert finds himself dangerously tempted. Gala adores horses, and when she switches to working in the yard, her carer’s job is taken by a handsome man who claims to be gay but seems far keener on caring for Rupert’s wife Taggie. And as increasingly sinister acts of sabotage strike at Penscombe, the game of musical loose boxes gathers apace…”
