First Meeting and Programme for 2011

A full programme of topics for the new year has now been put together, as shown in the right-hand column, and you can download a printable PDF version from the Hastings Humanists page of my website (which also has a copy of our Constitution).

The first meeting of the New Year will be 6:30-8:30 pm on Thursday 13 January at the Arts Forum. The subject will be all the numerous different organisations that exist to promote the interests of Humanists, Freethinkers, Rationalists, Secularists, Atheists, Brights, Ethicists, Sceptics and others of similar views. How did all these groups arise? Do they all serve a useful purpose? Are they rivals or do they amount to a coordinated movement? These are some of the questions we can discuss.

As an experiment I intend to illustrate the talk by means of images shown on a television screen instead of by using a projector.

You don't have to be a humanist or a member to attend the meeting. The entry fee is £2.50 for non-members, £1.50 for members of Hastings Humanists. If you are willing to subscribe to our aims, to become a member for the year costs only £5, which besides the reduced entry fee, gives you election rights at the AGM.

    It was brought up during the meeting that maybe we need to raise our profile. I've been thinking about this and I thought that maybe we could do something under the H/H banner the next time there is one of those charity TV things, like Children in need or comic relief. Any one got any ideas about anything we could do?
