november meetings: death matters

It has been tricky to work out quite how to market our November event but ultimately we wanted to curate an evening where we could discuss topics around death, dying and bereavement. We recognise that, as these subjects are often taboo, many of our questions about end of life issues are left unanswered. So, on the 18th we have invited a female undertaker, a founder of the UK Death Cafe movement, a celebrant and two legal professionals who will be discussing wills and will writing. Each of them will be telling us a bit about themselves what they do and then will answer your questions.We are also lucky enough to have been offered will writing services to three people in return for a donation to Will Aid. More details on that on the night. We hope that it will be an informative and uplifting evening so bring along your questions and queries.

Tuesday November 18th 7 for a 7.30pm start. As usual the meeting is free to members and £4 to visitors. The hall is around the back of St Margaret's House which you can access by going through the black gates on the left of the Gallery Cafe and following the path round the garden to the right. Tea, coffee, wine and snacks will be available. Baking is always welcomed as are donations towards refreshments.
For our November coffee morning on Friday 21st November we will be visiting Husk Coffee  at 649 - 651 Commercial Road, London E14 7LW as recommended by one of our members. We will be there from 10.30am. Everyone is welcome - you don't have to be a member. More info about the cafe as well as where it is can be found here. We hope to see you there for a cuppa and a chat.
And finally, well done everyone who came along to the Great British Bioscience Festival over the weekend. Fantastic venue, wonderful people and, so we're told, the best cakes in town. Of course.
