Bromley March meeting: Denis Cobell

When: Wednesday 11th March, 2 – 4pm
Where: Bromley (map)

Come along to the first Bromley meeting of 2020, where Denis Cobell – who has been heavily involved in Humanist and Secular organisations for many decades – will be talking about life and his time as President of the National Secular Society.

Denis Cobell was born, raised & educated in what is now the City of Brighton & Hove. His parents were kind but staunch evangelical Christians. This was protestant and puritan, but unlike the CoE & RC was non-conformist – questioning was welcomed. In his late teens he moved away from Christianity with the influence of Bertrand Russell and local humanists. In this talk he will explore his path in life. Later he studied for a degree in psychology. His working life was in the NHS – nursing & therapy, then several years as President of the National Secular Society.
