wall hanging at Newcastle Meeting House

At our final meeting of 2014, Northern Friends Peace Board members gathered at Newcastle upon Tyne Quaker Meeting House. A well attended meeting was joined by three young men from the Ukraine, who were all gaining experience in community work with children in the East end of Newcastle.

Poster - 'There is Another Way'

We had our new posters printed in time to take a good supply to the Quaker ‘Yearly Meeting Gathering’ at the beginning of August and were pleased to see Friends liked them. The posters consist of three reproductions of earlier designs, which we hope will be useful for those wanting to mark the centenary of the First World War over the coming four years with a message of peace. The fourth is a new poster, reflecting our concerns for promoting peaceful approaches to the range of potential and actual conflicts in the world.

There is another way

Just over a hundred years ago, NFPB’s Secretary, Robert Long, wrote a powerful piece of text two days after Britain declaring war, asking ‘What Shall We Do?’ . We are producing this simple A5 leaflet in 2014 for Friends and others to use. This may be particuarly appropriate over the period of, and events relating to, the centenary of Britain going to war in 1914 (4th August) but also for other occasions.
