Our reading groups are a great way for older people to get together and share their views on a variety of stories and poems.

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin's reading groups meet regularly to bring older literature lovers together.

Online reading groups

Make new friends in a small relaxed group on Zoom online. Our Reader Leader reads a short story or poem aloud then we stop and talk about what we have read. Group members might respond personally, sharing feelings, thoughts and memories suggested by the reading or they may want to just listen. Everyone experiences the text in their own way, but the literature provides a shared language that brings us together.
