Our first meeting of the 2010/2011 Season will be a LITERARY QUIZ on Wednesday 13 October 2010 at 8pm. Bring a friend along or team up with a fellow Circle member on the night. The winning pair will receive a prize. Please RSVP to Karen Rollason on asap. If however you do not want to commit until the day you will still be very welcome to come along.

The meeting will start with the presentation of the Anne Worboys Prize for Writing Endeavour and the Bryan Darby Award (Victoria Vase) for services to the Circle. Please let the committee have your nominations for the recipient of the Bryan Darby Award. A vote for the member judged to have done most for the Circle in the past year will be held on the night.

A reminder too of our evening INVITING YOU TO WRITE
event on Wednesday 10 November at 8pm. Write 250 words on ONE of the following topics:


Bring your piece along on 10 November prepared to read or have it read aloud. The author of the story anonymously voted to be the best by the other participants will receive a prize. To enable everyone’s stories to be read on the night, there is a limit on numbers for this event. Please LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME ALONG. If you are not sure until the night then you will still be very welcome but those who have notified me of their interest will have priority should there be too many entries.

The venue for both events is St John’s Church Centre, Amherst Road, Tunbridge Wells TN4 9LG. It is hoped the new venue will provide a more welcoming ambience and encourage more of you to come along. St John’s is the large Victorian church on St John’s Road – the main road through the centre of Tunbridge Wells - almost opposite the Shell and BP garages. It has its own car park which can be accessed via Amherst Road at the rear of the church.

Directions from Tunbridge Wells Town Centre: from St John’s Road turn right into Woodbury Park Road (next to the bus depot) and Amherst Road is the first left. The car park is on your left at the other end of the road immediately before the church. Directions from Tonbridge: from St John’s Road turn left into Queens Road (beside the church green) and Amherst Road is the first right. The car park is on your right immediately after the church.

We are meeting in the Church Centre which is the new building alongside the church. We will have access to tea and coffee making facilities but if members fancy something stronger before or after the meeting, the highly thought of Saint John’s Yard pub is just around the corner.
