October 16th Friday – 13th Annual Abbey Lecture “Perspectives from Palestine” – 7pm
To be given by Tim and Mayonne Coldicott, from Frensham, Surrey
A study tour to Israel and occupied Palestine introduced us to Jews, Moslems, Christians and secular people who shared a common aim, searching for a just solution to the conflict in this area. All were concerned that the international community should hear their stories; they, and we, are not well served by the media. In the light of the upsurge in violence we are using our contacts to research and update our initial presentation.
- Zaytoun and Hadeel Products will be on sale, to support the Palestinian efforts to help themselves.
- Tickets £25 to include supper with wine in the Refectory after the Lecture
