Core Group have not arranged a meeting at St Ethelwold’s House this month. This is partly because we are all busy in the community shop until 14th October, but also because there are two excellent meetings we want to go to in the same week!
 
On Tuesday 17th Oct at 8pm in Northcourt Centre in Abingdon, Ellen Teague, environmental author and activist, will speak on “Water and Conflict”. This meeting has been organised by Abingdon Peace Group but is open to all. See Abingdon Peace Group Facebook page. Poster Ellen Teague 17.10.17
