A NUMBER of people feel they have a way with words after a few pints but a group of poets from Devizes have shown how ale and literature can mix by creating Verses From The Vaults.

Six poets, who all frequent The Vaults pub in Devizes have published the book which includes 52 poems so there is one for each week of the year.

Book editor and publisher Trevor Cherrett said: “The poems are on everything from love and friendship to global crises, a pirate queen and a talking toilet.”

At the moment it has six members including Mr Cherrett, Lotus Finch, who founded the club, Ian Diddams, Andy Fawthrop, Gail Foster and Keira Georgeson.

They meet monthly at The Vaults, opposite Devizes Town Hall, are would be happy for other poets to join them.

The books is for sale at Devizes Books.

The next meeting of the group will be on Wednesday, February 26 from 7pm to 9pm. Go to Word#poetrygroup
