Refugees and the work of aid groups

Our first talk after our normal summer break was an inspiring look at how passionate and motivated individuals can get together and help those in need. 

First Discussion Group Meeting

For some time a number of our members have been keen for us to start a discussion group, and in August we finally got around to organising one.  We held it at the Devonport Park Pavilions Café, which proved to be an ideal venue. Sixteen people took part and we discussed two topics  - ‘Assisted Dying’ and ‘How far should we embrace modern technology’.  Two hours shot past and we could easily have gone on longer. We hope to arrange another group meeting in the not too distant future.  Thanks go in particular to Priscilla and Rob for their support and for arranging the venue.

AGM 2018

We had another productive and successful AGM in June, held in Moments Cafe in the City Centre.  Martin has reached the end of his three year stint as Chair, for which he was thanked - the group has continued to grow under his leadership and the programme of events has been very successful.  Jessica Adams was elected as our new chair. We're all looking forward to working with Jessica over the coming months.

 

Medicines for pain and distress? How much is too much?

Our final talk before our summer break was from Professor Richard Byng who asked: “Medicines for pain and distress? How much is too much?”

Social Mobility Matters

Social mobility, or more importantly the obstacles to it, was the subject our May talk.
