Regional meetings are when we get together to simply enjoy time with each other, often with little more planned than a barbecue or fun on the beach. These are open to anyone. See if there is one planned near you below.
I am writing this at the second breakfast table at Sonia and Michael's house in Shropshire. Twenty one people slept here last night; some were in the house in beds, Mark and Tricia were in the 'garden room', Bob and Lesley were in their caravan on the car park area at the front of the house and the rest were spread between four tents.
A group of 18 hardy Shechemites braved the British summer for the annual visit to the seaside.
Thanks to the foresight of the Victorians in providing a shelter on the promenade, we were able to sit and eat our picnics without getting soggy sandwiches.
Fortunately, the rain stopped for a while and we de-camped to the beach.
On the 14th July, we met in Marlow Bottom for a BBQ. In the afternoon it rained cats and dogs and when it ran out of those animals, it chucked in a few pigs as well! Fortunately, after coffee and chat, it was dry enough to have a ‘Woodland Walk’, followed by ‘cooking out’ and ‘eating in’!
