We are delighted to welcome Rev. Nick Read from Holy Trinity Church as our guest speaker at our Open Meeting on Wednesday 27th November. Nick Read and Holy Trinity are hosts for Living Well, which is probably best known as the main food bank for Penge, but it is much more than that. Living Well provides a welcoming environment for vulnerable men and women and works with partners to support people with different needs, including social isolation, addictions, mental health issues, debt and homelessness. Nick’s talk will be a confirmation of his belief in the Power of Community.
This meeting will also be our Annual General Meeting, so for those who wish to support the Forum by becoming members, your annual membership (£5 or £4 for concessions) becomes due. We need a registered membership to be accredited as a constituted body for consultation on local issues. Membership fees also contribute towards the cost of hall hire and refreshments. All our committee are volunteers and we receive no other funding. At this meeting we will also present a short annual report and ask for further volunteers to join our committee.
Doors will open at Melvin Hall at 7 pm for the usual complementary tea, coffee and biscuits and, as it is the AGM, we hope you may stay after the meeting to socialise with other members while enjoying wine, soft drinks and nibbles.
