Salter Lecture: Solutions for a divided society

Large Meeting House

Quaker Socialist Society

Society is increasingly divided, not just along traditional class lines, but between city and countryside, and by metropolitan 'elites. People often don't know their neighbours. Loneliness is on the increase. Young people who have worked hard at their studies are stuck on low pay with little hope of buying a home. Catherine West MP will suggest some basic solutions for our communities, which could make a real difference and bring people back together.

Friday 24 May 3:00PM- 5:00PM

Britain Yearly Meeting fair

Large Meeting House

Britain Yearly Meeting

Come and find out more about the work done by Britain Yearly Meeting (BYM). There will be displays and literature available and a chance to speak to staff and committee members. No centrally managed work tables will be at the Sunday evening Groups Fair. We realise that not everyone will be able to attend on Friday afternoon and therefore aspects of the work will also be displayed on the permanent BYM stand throughout the weekend.
