Simon Nightingale on radio: should there be a carol service in a shopping centre?

On the Danny Kelly BBC West Midlands programme on 6 December there was a phone-in on the pros and cons of holding a carol service (with prayers) in a local shopping centre.

Simon Nightingale was asked for a humanist response, which you can hear at between 26.00 and 30.00 on the time line, for the next month only. Note that he expresses his own views.


December social: lunch at the Riverside Inn, Cound, on 14 December

holly editedFor this year’s festive lunch on Sunday 14th December we shall be returning to The Riverside Inn, Cound, who have served us extremely well in the last two years. Arrival from 12 noon, when the doors open, for a 12:30pm start. Their Christmas 2014 Menu is available at

All are welcome, but please let us know by Thursday 20th November (the day of our November monthly meeting) whether you will be attending, with details of your menu choices. It is likely that we will have the same area of the Summer Room as we occupied last year.

Please note that, if we have more that 12 in our party, there will be a 10% service charge applied. As last year, it is likely to be one bill for our table so please bring the right amount of cash for the meal you order.
