Social media @ #YM2019

Social media at Quaker events is great for outreach and a way to include a wide audience. Please read this very brief guide to using social media (PDF). It includes details of accounts as well as top tips for making Yearly Meeting 2019 safe and enjoyable for all, like "Get permission to take, and post, any photos of people."



The Quaker Centre Café will be serving breakfast 8.30am–10.00am including a new range of vegetarian and vegan breakfast baps. A range of homemade smoothies, granola pots, cereals, porridge, toast and preserves, freshly baked Danish pastries and yoghurts will also be available.
