Reading Friends

Reading Friends volunteers

Reading Friends is a scheme for people to get together with a good book, poem or newspaper article, learn a new skill or reminisce and share stories. People can come along to meet others, make new friends, chat and have a laugh. More details are available on the Reading Friends website.

We are looking for Reading Friends volunteers to help with the project. To find out more have a look at our role description or contact
