It was a wonderfully welcoming place for my new partner and me. We met some amazing women and Amanda , who ran the discussion group and worked in the bookshop was someone we all looked up to. There weren't that many lesbian venues in those days so this was a great place to socialise as well as having really interesting discussions. We all used to go to the pub over the road afterwards and have a laugh. It was a great place to find our feet and gain confidence in the newly discovered lesbian world.
