Though we may be separate, not able to meet in person, remember we belong to a community of shared values: a commitment to truth, equality, simplicity and peace, and above all a care and concern for each other. How could you reach out to others to show your love for them?
Amongst the huge crowd at the Remembrance Sunday ceremony in Leighton Buzzard on 11.11.18 were a small group of Quakers who had come to witness for peace and to lay a wreath of red and white poppies.
Though there was long list of those who were to lay wreaths, The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) was not mentioned. But the wreath was laid anyway.
The ceremony was dominated by a militaristic parade, with standard bearers of all ages, from war veterans to Brownies. There were a few in the crowd wearing white poppies, or both white and red poppies.
Here are some of the photographs taken on the day.
Carpet tiles are to be laid in the Small Meeting Room on Friday 3rd March. We hope this will improve the experience for users of the Meeting House.
On Thursday 2nd March the light over the wrought iron gates will be reconnected and the light over the door with the key pad will be changed to one with a sensor so that it will be easier to enter the key code and come in to the building.
Today we discovered a bird’s nest next to the Meeting House door. There are four chicks being reared. We think they are blackbirds. They do not seem to mind people going in and out. We found them charming and enthralling!
A very successful Open Garden Day saw dozens of visitors enjoying the garden as well as tea and cake! Thanks to all who came and helped. Here is a selection of pictures of how the garden looked on the day.
