Reading Group - Falmouth:

Book Group Falmouth. 4th Wednesday of the month.

We have gone back to meeting in the residents' lounge at Bay Court, Cliff Road, Falmouth,

The latest book read was Water for Elephants by Sarah Gruen. It tells the story of a young man who joins the circus at the time of the Depression in America. It was a success, as it caused much discussion.

Another one was Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. A compelling read but very hard to classify, as the the subject is euthenasia and romance!

Before I Go to Sleep by S JWatson. All except one thought it was a very good read but perhaps not something to read last thing at night!

Other books we have read recently have been:

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

The Quiet American- Graham Greene


Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by M.C.Beaton

Reading Group 1

Owzat! 100 and not out!

Ours was the first reading group in U3A Carrick, which started in 2004 and in April we shall be reading and discussing our 100th book. Quite an achievement! Apart from me, only two of our founding members are still there,


Molly has generously hosted our meetings each month from the very beginning – an equally impressive achievement and one for which all members, past and present, are grateful. Most members stay years so turnover is infrequent, but at present we would welcome two more: see below how to contact me if you are interested.


We meet on the last Wednesday of every month from 2.00 -4.00 pm; in December each member chooses one book for our yearly reading list: the variety of choice leads to some lively, and always interesting, discussions!

Click here to open our Reading List of 100 Titles!

This will open a Word file, listing our books read from 2004 to 2013!

Thank you to all those who have contributed to our meetings to date – and long may they continue.

Creative Writing


We have managed to continue meeting using zoom but now we have reverted to meeting in a member’s home. She has a large , well ventilated room and we would welcome new members.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month. We attempt to write a short piece on a given subject each month, and we discuss each other’s efforts, often accompanied by much laughter. We are a relaxed and friendly small group.
Examples of our work can be read in the Carrick Argus, where we attempt to submit two pieces each month. If you want to receive the Argus, which is an excellent extension of the monthly Newsletter, contact Sue Hutt at

Would you like to try another group to start the New Year? Why not come and join the playreading group. We enjoy an afternoon reading a variety of plays, comedy, serious, classic or like the one we read today, The Woman in Black, chilling.You don't have to be Dame Judi Dench or Sir John Gielgud to belong to the group, we just have fun reading. One week you may be playing a young girl or an old man or maybe even both if the play has a large cast. We meet at Mark and Chris Breach's house on the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 2pm till we've read the play usually 4 to 5pm. Our numbers fluctuate but we have room for a few more. Refreshments provided.
