Pull up a chair, grab a cuppa and gather around the table. Tables are places of sharing life,
of conversation, of listening and learning. Ideas are sparked as we gather around the table.
Communities grow and welcome people in around tables and talking and tea.
We will listen and discuss hard truths: What does Crisis mean to you?
How is it affecting your community? What can we do about it?
Hot drinks will be provided. All welcome. This is for all members of the public.

Finally, (though some of you will know this from previous recent emails),
I am sad to report that Althea Shevill with whom I shared so many activities and
adventures died on Wednesday 18 August. I went on many trips with her and her wheel chair.
She was supportive of many of the projects I have
been involved with – in the church, in Craven Conservation Group and a whole
host of Settle Community Activities. Some of you will know her from other projects too.
She was patient and an inspiration with her persistence and enthusiasm.
