Last week, two new book clubs were born in Chandler’s Ford. One is called Valley Park Readers, and one is called The Bonny Book Club.
We all are book lovers in Chandler’s Ford. Thanks to Streetlife, a local social network for neighbours in our own communities, we get to find one another, and now two book clubs have been set up.
Streetlife connects neighbours
It is the power and beauty of online social network. Through the digital world, we get to meet and talk to real people. Streetlife is a wonderful tool – it’s user friendly, and it connects you with your neighbours instantly.
The beauty of Streetlife is that it aims at you and your immediate surroundings. This is what we all need: Where is the best rubbish dump? Have you seen my missing cat? Who can wash my car/oven/windows? Can I have something for, er, free?
Chatting over the garden fence
Have a look at a few topics shared last week:
- Wendy Blackman: Her visit to Hocombe Mead
- Peter Gunn: Recommending Butterflies – Yew Hill
- Janet (me): Free ebook download (Chandler’s Ford writer Brenda Sedgwick’s book)
- Andy W: Empty hanging baskets to give away
- Eileen Betteridge: Starting a French group
- Claire A: Lost cat
- Eileen D: Queries about household recycling dump
- Joh Foster: Fundraising for Hampshire Cancer Support: Shine Cancer Support
I found these conversations totally fascinating! It’s like chatting over the garden fence.
You only need to have minimal computer skill to use Streetlife. Even if you might worry your computer skill is limited, you will find Streetlife is not threatening.
Two Chandler’s Ford book groups
Neighbours who join the Valley Park Readers will take turn to meet in one another’s house.
However, The Bonny Book Club will meet for the first time at St. Boniface Church on Hursley Road.
They’ll meet in the rather comfy Canterbury Room next Thursday.
Update: The Bonny Book Club will meet on 28th August (Thursday) 7.30pm to 9pm at the Cranbury Room at The Hilt, Hiltingbury Community Centre.
Have you joined Streetlife yet?
I would like you to join Streetlife, to make Streetlife stronger and better, to build a connected community.
