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.
