New years news from Eccleshall Poetry Group

Dame Carol Ann Duffy
Dame Carol Ann Duffy

Eccleshall Poetry Group had more than the New Year to celebrate when they gathered at Eccleshall Library for their first meeting of 2015.

For a number of years they have been proud to claim Carol Ann Duffy, as their president, so you can imagine their joy when the news of Carol Ann being made a Dame in the New Years Honours List, in addition to being the current Poet Laureate.

Though she has, as yet, been unable to pay them a visit locally, members catch up with her at poetry readings whenever possible.

Eccleshall Poetry Group meet the first and third Thursday in the month at 2pm in the Library.

For a copy of the programme please contact the Library or just come along to one of our meetings.
