As well as our regular monthly meetings, we also organise one-off events. We aim for these to be entertaining, sociable , educational and interesting. Events we have organised in the last few years have included visits to places of historical interest, exhibitions, talks and social outings.
We also hold a stall at Nunhead Cemetery Open Day every year and join in with various interfaith events in Lewisham and surrounding areas.
