Horsham Humanists meeting 8th December 2010

We met for the last time in the home of one of the members. Future meetings will take place in a central venue to be decided soon.

This was an action packed convivial meeting in which the running of the group was discussed in some detail, along with a range of topical issues.

Damian Brewer, Equality & Diversity Officer for Horsham District Council, was in attendance and provided us with useful advice and contacts.

 

Horsham Humanists meeting 13th October 2010

This informal meeting was held at the home of a member, where we discussed a range of issues, especially science and education.

The nature of future meetings was considered. It was agreed that our intitial objective should be to establish a regular time and place to meet, and to build interest through advertising, including holding a stall at local events.

We learned that the local council has been contacted and may be willing to provide a suitable venue.
