Chris Smith writes: An early reminder of June’s evening meeting.  David Brittain, the Humanist “chaplain” to UK Armed Forces, will speak to us. A positive story of Humanism in practice will be encouraging after the scary Scientologists in May!  7:30 pm, Thursday 21 June, The Lantern.

On to July, I am planning the walk and lunch for Sunday 22 July.  We will meet at 10.00 am on the big car park in the centre of Shifnal for the Lodge Hill walk; a couple of hours stroll with great views and very little up and down, in spite of the name.  This will be followed by lunch at Odfellows Wine Bar.  A table is booked in the large conservatory, at “12 for 12:30”.  Of course non-walkers will be welcome join in for lunch – good choice of beers too.  There will be Sunday Roasts, beef, lamb, turkey have been mentioned, as well as the menu attached.  Early expressions of interest will be helpful, definite numbers and pre-orders will be needed in July.

Meanwhile for most of June I will be in Uganda, much of the time with the Uganda Humanist Schools Trust.  We will be visiting all three secondary Humanist Schools, and working with The Isaac Newton High School, Masaka, for the final week.  I know that school particularly well as Masaka is only 3 hours by road from the college where I did my VSO placement.  Internet connection will be uncertain but with a laptop, dongle and spare battery I hope to send out news of my travels.  If you would like to receive these emails please let me know.
