Pints of View
What is Pints of View?
Pints of View (POV) is a meeting of men getting together to talk about diverse subjects. Often, but not always, from a faith perspective. We are of various faiths & no faith.
We meet on the first Monday of the month in the Generals Arms at 8 pm. Usually 5 to 14 chaps mainly from Little Baddow, Danbury & Boreham to talk about 2 or 3 subjects. Each month a different person volunteers to come up with the topics, which are varied.
I personally find the level of discussion really stimulating, sometimes I don't have much to say & just listen; occasionally I have very definitely got something to chip in.
I found POV a great help & distraction when I was going through a stressful time & as POV helped me, I wanted to help POV, so I organise reminder emails.
If you would like to come just turn up at 8pm on a first Monday (if 1st Monday is a Bank Holiday we meet on the 2nd Monday) or contact me for more information on email@example.com. or 01245 467286.
