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

Christmas Social 2015

Our seasonal social in the cellar bar of the Fortescue on December 12th was as enjoyable as always.  Ben did his usual excellent job of laying on a buffet and we had a good time chatting with people we often see at meetings, but seldom have the time to talk to at any length.

Book Club – November ‘15

We chose a Sci-Fi classic for this month’s book club – Isaac Asimov’s ‘I, Robot’.

Bob Churchill - “Your Humanism Is a Thought Crime”

We originally had Andrew Copson coming to speak to us in November, but he had to call off his visit at the last minute to attend a court hearing relating to the case the BHA is pursuing against the government over the exclusion of humanism from the GCSE curriculum.

Instead, we had Bob Churchill, Director of Communications for the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), come to speak to us about freedom of thought and the work of the IHEU.

Defence Humanists

With Remembrance Day approaching and the recent launch of the Defence Humanists Network, we had a very timely talk in October from Matt Hicks, a Petty Officer Naval Nurse in the Royal Navy, about Humanism in the Armed Forces.

Conservation Walk October '15

We had a really good turnout for our last planned conservation walk of the year – ten people in all.
