SEE OUR EVENTS LISTINGS BELOW FOR AN INTERESTING ENTERPRISE IN IPSWICH, BORDER CROSSINGS II, ON WED 25 APRIL (THE EVENING BEFORE OUR OWN EVENT ON THURS 26 APRIL) …

PLUS: On National Poetry Day we visited Silver Springs Residential Home in Thorrington to give a poetry reading to the residents. Definitely the sort of social thing Poetrywivenhoe ought to be doing, so Jeannie and Pam and Peter read some well-known stuff (Hilaire Belloc, Pam Ayres) and some of our own stuff. That was good.
