2015 September 12 London demonstration Refugees Welcome Here sm[Updated] F/friends! Please join us for the following Quaker events on the day of the Refugees Welcome Here National Day of Action and march in London on Saturday, 12 September (you can find more information about the larger event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1629390697300657/):

1. Outdoor Meeting for Worship: 11 a.m. underneath the horse’s head sculpture near the Marble Arch (across from Marble Arch Station). Follow this link to a map: https://goo.gl/maps/3rYGO. We’ll hold silent worship outdoors prior to the start of the march at 12 p.m.

2. Post-march meeting/discussion: At Westminster Quaker Meeting House (map: https://goo.gl/maps/YOVei) — enter by the side door from 4 p.m., and join us in the basement of the MH.

We will have access to the meeting house kitchen for tea making while we are there: Your donations of tea supplies/cakes/snacks will be appreciated (but please be prepared to take the leftovers away with you; we don’t want to be a burden to Westminster Meeting)!

We hope to meet and worship with you as we support this very important movement and issue. If you have questions or wish to coordinate, please contact Ellyn Stokes Ross via Facebook, or at sloughquakers@gmail.com, or on 0746.378.9324.
