Shared Reading is fun

Our Shared Reading group started again this summer at The Brain Charity, led by Frank from The Reader Organisation. In shared reading, the group listen to the leader read a short piece and then they have a chat about it. You don’t have to be involved in the discussion if you would rather not but you could just listen to everybody else’s views.

You never know though, you might not be able to stop yourself from commenting if somebody has a different take on something to you. It’s all very friendly, no controversy, and you get to learn what makes other people tick. It’s only a small group at the moment but they are very keen and would welcome new faces. If you enjoy other people reading to you, come along and try it out. Sit and listen with a cuppa, join in if you want to and meet new people.

Our Shared Reading group takes place on Monday afternoons from 1-2.30pm.
