Book Club Update from John Forte

January’s book club was a cosy affair in the Sea Trout as we discussed Ali Smith’s much lauded post-Brexit novel Autumn and Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend. Autumn divided our readers with some confusion over timelines and the fact it was not written in chronological order yet other readers loved this aspect of the novel and the touching relationship between the old man and his younger female friend which built over many years. Most of us did not have time to get very far into the first of Ferrante’s bestsellers but what we had read spurred us all on to read more. Indeed there are two sequels which I imagine might become choices in future book club events.

Meanwhile February’s choice is the blockbuster Conclave by Robert Harris and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Feel free to read one or both or just come and enjoy a convivial chat in the warm, friendly surroundings of our lovely pub.

Devon Air Ambulance

Why not make your New Year’s resolution really count and become a Devon Air Ambulance volunteer? We receive no government funding and are totally reliant on donations from the people of Devon. We offer an array of volunteering opportunities from box collecting, giving talks, attending cheque presentation, assisting in one of our 18 charity shops or helping out at our annual events. Volunteering can really make a real difference to your own life and the lives of others. This opportunity would suit anyone who would like to get out of the house, make new friends, do something worthwhile, all whilst having fun! We really do appreciate any amount of time you can offer. Whoever you are, you’d fit in just fine!
