Minutes of the meeting 13 June 2019 Venue: Neos Sports Club, Pegeia.


Welcome scribes, last week’s writing prompt about a well-known phrase or saying, failed to stir anyone's brain except for Maurice who produced two books on the subject and gave us a few examples. Maybe it is too hot as we head for the summer break shortly. Having said that, this weeks from John should be a blockbuster.


Present: John Goodwin, Rich Palmer, Caroline Harman -Smith, Michael White, June Megennis, Bob Barker, Derek Whittle, Maurice Holloway.


Members please note: An Article about the PWG by Alix Norman is scheduled to appear in the Cyprus Sunday Mail this coming weekend. 16/6/2019


The meeting began with a general discussion on writing and the publication of Beryl Lowe's third book 'Lizzies Secret'.
