"Quakers were at the heart of banking from the beginning.
Friends have always been committed to bringing about change in the face of gross societal wrongs.
It is important for us to develop an understanding of the ways in which our testimonies are directly compromised by the current debt- based system of money creation and to become acquainted with the fact that there is a more just and democratic way.".
The recently refurbished Meeting House, situated in the centre of the town, is ideally suited for letting.
The main space is the Meeting Room, at first floor level and is accessed by a flight of stairs or a lift. The Meeting room provides a quiet 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 approximately12ft wide x 18ft long . It does have full kitchen facilities, which can be hired separately, although facilities for tea making are included in the hire fee.
Please ring Margaret Baker 01364654518 if you would like to have information on the hire charges or view the accommodation.
