Contact with Hanover Quakers
Our Friend John Tittley, on past visits to his friends in Germany, as a personal initiative, made contact with Germans Friends. In 2014 at the request of Almeley Meeting he took with him a letter of introduction to Hanover Quakers. Friends in Hanover welcomed the visit, and since then exchanges of correspondence and visits from Friends to each other’s Meetings have taken place regularly. Southern Marches Area Quaker Meeting has received and accepted a minute from Almeley Meeting expressing a desire to put the link between the two meetings on a more formal basis. There are now nominated Friends who seek to develop further the relationship.
Our Children’s Meeting have made ‘prayer flags’ and sent them to our friends in Hanover Meeting. We were delighted to receive from Viktoria in Hanover, photographs of their ‘prayer flags’ displayed at Bad Pyrmont.
The ‘Puzzle’ send from Friends in Hanover Meeting is enjoyed by young and older Friends alike !
