Friends represent our Area Meeting at a number of national Quaker events. This page gives them an opportunity to summarise their experience and share it with others.
For this purpose, our Assistant AM Clerk (Training and Development) has devised a standardised means of providing a short written report in addition to any spoken one given in the meeting itself.
Whilst spoken reports are often given at Area Meeting for business, many Friends are prevented from attending. This page gives them an opportunity to catch up on what they may otherwise have missed.
Friends reporting back welcome being contacted and asked for more information about aspects mentioned in their reports.
Since many events are annual in nature, we will post each report online as it is presented, and keep it for reference here for around a year, until the next one is available.
