LotsOn is our monthly events listing sheet, distributed to all Derwenthorpe households, and some of our neighbours. We aim to bring it online for the moment, and look forward to the time we can go back to paper (because paper reaches the people other channels cannot reach).
Unfortunately, a lot of the events be suspended for the time being. But usually, there are lots of social activities organised. And you can still enjoy our beautiful green space and lakes. Keep your distance from others, though.
Our book clubs are all meeting in Zoom video conferencing groups. And we have a couple of weekly Zoom chats, open to everyone at Derwenthorpe. One is a continuation of our Friday Coffee Mornings, and then a similar Afternoon Tea meeting on Tuesdays. Please do join us.
