Quaker Events

Food and Friendship: Tue. 19th July; 6-8pm

Extremism and fundamentalism continue to hit the headlines and cause violence and death across the world -but we know this is not what faith is about for most people.

Here is another opportunity to share a meal and get to know people from different faith backgrounds, to make new friendships and extend existing ones. If you are able, please bring some food to share (from your own culture, but suitable for others).

We welcome everybody who would like to come at Shirley House, 31 Psalter Lane, Sheffield S11 8YL
Tuesday 19th July 2016 at 6.00-8.00pm

Offer of help with allotments

Our friend Chrissie Hinde passes on this message about two refugee men who would like to offer their gardening labouring services……………………

Anyone looking for tidying up allotment, labour intense work and digging let me know as I have got two able bodied Refugee Men, one from Eritrea and one from Syria, both were farmers in their own country before and looking for work. Pay as you feel.
