New Writers' Group

A new writers’ group is being set-up in Hethersett. 

The group, which will meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 8 p.m, is the brainchild of local resident Pat Lightfoot (pictured above) 

Pat moved to Hethersett from Norwich just over a year ago and is keen to encourage local people to give vent to their artistic side: 

“I am hoping that by starting a writers’ group, keen writers can become more confident and enjoy sharing their work. Ultimately we might get to the stage of publishing work. I am sure there are many people with excellent ideas who would like to put them down on paper or others who have already written material and just kept quiet about it. 

“I want the writers’ group to be informal, where people are happy to share their skills and knowledge and come along with written work which can be discussed in a friendly atmosphere. The idea of starting a group came to me on a trip to India where I met and was inspired by somebody who already belonged to a group,” said Pat who, before her retirement, was Head of Learning Support at Langley School. 

Pat feels that being part of a group will help her to develop her own writing. She regularly produces stories for her grandchildren but feels sharing her work with other like-minded people will help her improve. She is currently writing a series of futuristic stories based around the history of Norwich. 

The new group will be open to all ages and will meet at Pat’s Hethersett home. Anybody interested in joining can e-mail her at
