Goodbye to the Surrey Group; Saturday 16th June 2007

We have decided that it is time to lay our group to rest, at least for the time being.

We have been running for many years and have had a series of convenors, and a fluid membership. There has been a sense of trust and supportiveness in our group throughout, and for some this ending will be a loss. For others it will be time to move on. And possibly one of the remaining members will see fit to breathe life back into a Surrey group in the future.

We shall meet to reminisce and to say "Goodbye" on Saturday June 16th at 2.30, in Helena Woddis house. If you can make it, please come along and let us have a joyful wake. Bring any thoughts or writings on the theme of "letting go".

There are groups you may like to join in Croydon, Alton and Southampton. Helena in her role as Local Groups Co-ordinator can give you information, or you might even find they have a blogspot if you visit the SoF website at www.sofn.org.uk .

We shall be meeting up to hear Bishop Spong speaking in London on the 20th October. For information and to book a place, contact Mavis Cracknell on 0208 390 1549, email mavis.cracknell@btinternet.com , or check the website.

Thank you to all of you for contributions over the last few years when I have been convening the group. I have very much enjoyed the time we spent together.
