Everyone understands that Rob's presence and character has set the tone of the group, but he had declared that he wished to stand down at the 2015 AGM, and so he did.
This Tuesday fifteen of us were present to hear Mervynn Linford share some of his poems from his younger days, in richly textured language as always with vivid natural imagery. After being celebrated in poetry Rob Lock accepted a gift of PBS membership in recognition of his seven years as Chair. Of the poems that were read during the evening two were chosen to be heard again. They were “Talking to the Bees” by Mervynn and “War Bride” by Rob Lock. Next month our poet of the month will be Jenny Chantler
