13 November – Remembrance Sunday. We shall again be presenting a small wreath at the Peace Memorial in Ludlow at 11 a.m. This will be in memory of all who have perished in conflicts during and since the First World War, no matter for which country, creed or religion.
15 November – ‘Religious Education – an update’ – A talk by Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of the BHA. We’re very pleased to have Andrew come and talk to us, and will be extending an invitation to local Humanist Groups – hopefully, we should get a big turnout for this. Andrew should be updating us on the implications and reaction to recent moves announced by Teresa May to allow 100% religious selection at faith schools.
