What members have said:
· Our group feels like a ‘new family’ that ‘helps me have the sense of belonging’
· I look forward to the meetings as ‘the highlight of my week’
· Reading aloud and being read to was ‘like returning to my childhood.’
· ‘The poems give me hope and courage that I may also rise again from a period of wastage, damage and hurt’
SOLACE reading group members are also poets. Here’s an excerpt from a poem by Margaret Katula, ‘Motherland and England’:
‘We cannot turn the clock back
But we can complain
You may not perform miracles
But you can support
We can’t change the law,
Which was made by the people for the people,
But we can twist the situation
In the struggle of reunion’
