A report I wrote on our inaugural meeting has appeared in today's (20th February) Hastings Observer in the "News from the Clubs" page 27. Besides a link to this blog, it also gives my name and telephone number at the end for anyone to ring who has queries.
Yesterday evening our first informal meeting in the bar-room of the White Rock Hotel from 7 to 8 pm attracted just three people, Eileen, Ann and myself. Much of the conversation was on our personal background and local news rather than humanist issues, but that is part of the purpose of these social events.
We will continue with these at least until the next formal meeting on 12th March and then assess whether to continue, or to try another venue or time. Some people may perhaps prefer a day-time meeting.
