Local Group – Buxton meeting – Monday 22 June

We are hoping to set up regular meetings in the Buxton/High Peak area. An initial meeting to gauge support will be held in the Piano Lounge, Old Hall Hotel, The Square, Buxton, SK17 6BD (phone 01298 22841) from 6pm to 8pm on Monday 22 June.

The programme will be quite flexible but will include a talk or two by GMH members who live in the area on what Humanism means to them personally. There will be an opportunity to discuss what form local meetings would take if they go ahead.

For further information or to express interest, contact the local organiser, Marge Rose on 01298 72310 or email marge rose
