Ten minute topics has always been a popular format. You are invited to suggest a topic for ten minutes of discussion. It can be anything you like. Everyone writes a topic on a scrap of paper and they’re drawn from a hat (or another suitable receptacle). Sometimes this generates ideas that can be followed up at a later date.

It’s our AGM with the usual reports and election. We’re hoping that members will have lots of bright ideas for the coming year’s activities. If there’s any time left over, we’ll find a way to fill it with stimulating something or other.
No meeting this month – usual time and place next month.
We’ll be playing Diversity, a non-competitive educational game devised by Suffolk Inter-Faith Resource that teaches you about the different faiths and beliefs practiced in the county, including humanism. Long term members may remember playing it a few years ago, but you can always learn more. The game tends to prompt lots of discussion, so no one ever seems to finish it.
Group members will be consulted about the BHA’s proposal to change the relationship with us, signing up to a detailed agreement. We are currently affiliated but could become a partner. We’ll be deciding when and how to consult members.
Our guest Esther Fidler, a Suffolk primary school teacher, thinks not. Come and hear why. For more about the proposed school, type “Steiner” in our search box.
Members enjoyed talking about the books they’d read at our May meeting, so they wanted to do it again. This time, we may talk about films too, maybe even films of books. Share your recommended reading or films.
Prof. John Midwinter (BSc & PhD in Physics, Hon. DSc, Fellow of the Royal Society) will address the following questions:

- What are the implications for us?
- How can we reduce our personal fossil fuel consumption?
- What are the possibilities for large scale renewable energy in the UK?
- Tipping points – the real worry behind the climate change debate.
A short illustrated talk by our member Andrew Sheldon on the history of the River Stour from its source to the sea. Places of interest along the way from times gone by and the present day, including important brickwork’s, battle grounds and structures.

Note that if you decide to buy any of the books, thereâ€™s an Amazon link on our website – we get commission if you use it.
