The Rickford Book Group, also known as Book Worms was set up in April 2012 

The Book Group is open to any interested residents although we are currently an all female group. We enjoy reading a wide variety of books which we then discuss together at very informal and friendly meetings in members' homes. New members are always welcome. Contact Julie Smallbone.
