After 20 June, we do not have a Thursday evening event until September. We do have some social events over the summer, and don’t forget the Humanist garden at the Shrewsbury Flower Show in August.
All social events are for members and their families, but you can also bring along interested friends. Some events must be booked in advance so we can plan for numbers: email Margaret Cann, tel 07703 540553.
