Visit by Lucas de Groot, Hague Meeting, the Netherlands, 26-27 June 2014

A small group of Friends were able to welcome Lucas de Groot to Ashburton on his peace pilgrimage around the UK at the end of June. Starting in Hull in April he has travelled on foot throughout much of Yorkshire, Cumbria and some of the south and southwest of the UK visiting Friends and Meeting Houses. He is now travelling on to Bristol, and then to London after a short holiday in the Cotswolds with his wife. We wish him well on his journey.

He was inspired by the life of Peace Pilgrim (born Mildred Lisette Norman) who walked more than 25 thousand miles in a 28-year personal pilgrimage for peace and who has been an inspiration for many people. Her message was both simple and profound: “This is the way of peace: overcome evil with good, and falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.”[ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_Pilgrim ]

A brief history of Ashburton Quaker Meeting

Ashburton Meeting was set up in 2004 as an offshoot of Totnes Meeting, of which it is still part, following a Quaker wedding in St Lawrence Chapel, which uncovered an enthusiasm in Ashburton for a distinctively Quaker expression of spirituality. In its early days Friends met once a month on Thursday evenings mainly in rented accommodation, but sometimes in a Friend's home.

In 2009, following a bequest from a Newton Abbot Friend, Rachel (Jill) Crossman, an old hall in the centre of town was purchased. Formerly a Plymouth Brethren Chapel and more recently a wood store for the local ironmongers, much work needed doing on it. After extensive refurbishment funded by generous gifts and loans from Quakers up and down the country, many Local Meetings and a number of Trusts, including the central Meeting Houses Fund, the new Meeting House was opened in September 2013.

We are still a relatively small Meeting with an average of 10-12 adults present at Meeting for Worship on Sundays. Visitors and newcomers are always welcome.

Hiring the Meeting House

The recently refurbished Meeting House, situated in the centre of the town, is ideally suited for letting to groups whose activities are in keeping with Quaker principles.

The main space is the Meeting Room on the first floor and is served by stairs and a lift. This room provides a tranquil space with views up to the surrounding hills. Yoga and meditation groups find it suits them well but it can also easily accommodate meetings where 30 to 40 people can be seated comfortably. With its beautiful north facing windows it would also be suitable for small exhibitions. There are tea and coffee making facilities on this floor. The Meeting Room measures approximately 24ft long x 21ft wide.

Downstairs is a pleasant lobby area, two toilets (one of them for the disabled) and the Jill Crossman Room which has a fully equipped kitchen with seating and some tables. The Jill Crossman room measures approximately 18ft long x 12ft wide. There are full kitchen facilities.

Larger groups have found that hiring the whole building can suit their needs.

For enquiries and bookings, please contact Margaret Baker at margaret.baker@scolty.com or telephone 01364 654518.
