Poetry Club at Mill House

The residents at Mill House hold a regular Poetry Club on a Wednesday.

How have did we start? Every year at the beginning of May there is Literary Festival organised in Chipping Campden and every year Children from the local school comes to recite poetry to our residents. That has become a yearly routine that our residents thoroughly look forward to!

Because of popularity of this event we thought it would be a great idea to hold a Poetry Club. The residents decided they would like it to be once a month so they have enough time to prepare themselves for the next sessions. They choose favourite poems which they then read out and share with each other. It’s great to see the residents getting so involved in something that they quite obviously enjoy, and have a chance to converse with each other and build their confidence and self esteem.

Some of the poems have been re-read for months because they are favourites such as: ”The Lion and Albert” by Marriot Edgar, ”Daffodils” by William Wordsworth in 1804, and ”Leisure” by W.H. Davies.

Our residents also shared poetry that they themselves have written in the past such as ” A small grey cardigan” written by Robert for his wife Barbara, they live at Mill House together.  Poetry Club is very much enjoyed and looked forward to by our residents.
