In this blog you'll find details of our past events, as well as other information about what Plymouth Humanists get up to

Book Club – Flowers for Algernon

Only a small turnout for February’s book club, but we still had good discussion about Daniel Keyes’ sci-fi novel.  Although written in the 1960’s, the book has not dated at all and raises some fascinating themes on the nature and benefits of intelligence, and the ethics of medical experimentation.

January talk - ‘Give a Kidney’

I’m sure many of us carry organ donor cards.  But donating a kidney when you’re still alive is another matter entirely.  Nevertheless, some brave people do give one of their kidneys to close family or even friends in need of a donation.  How many of us would take the next step, though, and give a kidney to a complete stranger, someone we would probably never even meet?

January Conservation Walk

The weather has always been kind to us on our conservation walks, and January’s second Sunday was no different, the rain holding off for long enough to allow three hardy volunteers to complete a circuit of Warleigh Point.  As you might expect at this time of year there was little rubbish to be found, but careful searching of the undergrowth turned up half a bag of long discarded cans and bottles, more visible now the leaves have fallen.

Christmas Social 2013

Our joint Christmas Social with Plymouth Skeptics in the Pub was held on the 13th December.  As in previous years, we hired the Cellar Bar at the Fortescue Pub on Mutley Plain for the evening.  Almost thirty people came along to enjoy the food, drink and good company, and were entertained by some of our more musical members.

December Conservation Walk

Only regulars Joe and Tim were available for December’s littering pick at Warleigh Point.  That wasn’t a problem, though, as with all the leaves down from the trees and carpeting the ground, and fewer visitors at this time of year, there was little rubbish to be found.
