LUNCH AND LITERATURE will be proposing a new society for August in the form of a blend of an informal lunch or scones, cream with jam and a book club. Lunch or snack payable to the venue upon attendance.

Pictured Sarah McNaught’s Fandanzel the 1st. Her sequel Fandanzel-Quest for the Mystical Meadow is shown after Fandanzel-Haunting Tale in the Forest below. All rights reserved for illustrating and writing.

Of course! This will be for Goostrey residents only, and in accordance to government guidelines curtailing to Covid Lockdown Lift.

I suggest we begin at Goostrey Home and Leisure for our debut venue, on the first Wednesday in August, commencing at Noon until 14.00 hours. You will need to book a place by emailing Sarah at

Please email her any ideas for book review suggestions. Sarah ran Bookworms 4 with the University of the Third Age for some number of years and is a published author, journalist, owner of and writer of childrens and adult books.

Copies of Fandanzel-A Haunting Tale in the Forest are available at £6.99 by the author. Please email

I suggest that we begin in August with ‘The Salt Path’ by Raynor Winn, a Sunday Times Bestseller.
