READ­ERS DI­GEST: Mem­bers of a book club who met in their play­ground of their chil­dren’s school cel­e­brated the group’s 15th an­niver­sary at The Ivy House A BOOK club of moth­ers who met in their chil­dren’s play­ground re­cently cel­e­brated its 15th an­niver­sary.

The moth­ers who met at Robertswood School in Chal­font St Peter gath­ered for the party at The Ivy House in Chal­font St Giles on Tues­day, Jan­uary 6.

After 15 years and 150 books, the friends still meet and share reads although the chil­dren have all gone away to study.

Mem­ber Beth Neill said: “Un­like some more for­mal groups, we meet in our homes and gen­er­ate the selections our­selves – each per­son brings three books to the meet­ing, de­scribes them and then we vote on which to read and dis­cuss in about a month’s time.

“I doubt when it started we re­ally thought about how long it would last.

“We did lose a few peo­ple but gained oth­ers, most of whom have been in the group for sev­eral years and have formed firm friend­ships through it.”
