12. 23rd/24th July. “Ride for Equality and the Common Good”

The Ride for the Common Good 
is coming to Settle on 23rd July from Yealand via Bentham, staying 
overnight at people’s houses in Settle, and then going on to Keighley, 
via a lunch stop in Skipton on the 24th. There will be the opportunity 
to meet the riders in Settle on the evening of the 23rd. Everyone is welcome to join the riders for all or part of each day.

We will be welcoming them with refreshments in Settle Meeting House as they arrive from Bentham and giving them and anyone else who wants to meet them a meal in the Catholic Hall at 6.00pm on 23 July

The purpose of the ride, which is organised by a group of Quakers,
(Kendal & Sedbergh Quakers) is to 
give witness to our concerns about the dismantling of the welfare state 
– including our NHS and Social Care Systems – and draw attention to the 
suffering and distress resulting from recent welfare changes and rising 
inequality in society. the ‘Ride for the Common Good’ is from Swarthmore Hall to London, by cycle and other means. The aim is to draw the Government’s attention to the suffering caused by welfare cuts, often hidden from view. 

 The riders will carry the stories of those 
affected by welfare cuts on postcards. These will be presented to MPs.
Kendal & Sedbergh Quakers are organising 
HAVE YOU OR YOUR NEIGHBOURS BEEN AFFECTED BY WELFARE CUTS?

There are also postcards for as many people as possible to write if they have suffered as a result of the welfare cuts. These will go on to London with the ride, so need to be done in advance.
Postcards to fill in with your experiences and concerns are available 
from Settle Meeting House, and various other locations around town (eg. 
Age UK shop, Doctors’ Surgery, The Hub etc. These can be and can be left with Alison Tyas or in the box in the Meeting House kitchen.).

I’m still doing something outside each day for June as in 30DaysWild

http://rainforest-save.blogspot.com/2018/06/30-days-wild-days-1-30-index-2018.html
It should be a good advert for North Yorkshire Tourist Board when I have finished.. tomorrow at Burns Beck Moss will only be the second main trip outside N Yorks.

Enjoy the sun and sympathise with the farmers and gardeners as this dry weather continues.

Best wishes from Judith Allinson
