Holocaust Memorial Day:

Mon 27 Jan to Sun 2 Feb

This year marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Settle Quakers are hosting an exhibition to commemorate the 6 million Jews, and countless others, murdered during the Nazi regime and also to remember other acts of genocide since then like the 8000+ Muslim men and boys murdered in Srebrenica 25 years ago.

The exhibition discusses genocide and there is also so poetry in our tranquil Meeting Room to aid quiet reflection.


We remember with affection and respect Father Tony Boylan - former Chair of Churches Together

who died recently at the age of 80. A funeral servicetook place at 11am on Wed 11 Dec at The Roman Catholic Church, Robin Lane, High Bentham.

When we had meetings about "Fair Trade goods" (see picture and account of 2013 Fair Trade Fortnight event here.. Boylan

he used to say it is much much, much, more important to change our trade systems, than just to satisfy our consciences by buying Fair Trade Goods and he encouraged us to support Global Justice Now.

After our St John's/Churches Together Party for Fair-Trade Fortnight on March 2013 He gave a short talk on trade justice, pointing out that unfair tax rules between rich powerful countries and poor countries often makes it impossible for poor farmers to sell their products.

He was also instrumental in getting us disciplined into writing a Settle Churches Together Constitution. Thank you.
