Alec Leggatt writes
“Graced with fine summer weather and live jazz, the beautiful gardens and pavilion of Farnham Museum and a few, mercifully concise, speeches, last Sunday Farnham Humanists celebrated, to the month, their first decade. Some eighty supporters and guests joined in the merry throng, including the mayors of Waverley and of Farnham, the chairman of Surrey County Council and representatives of some local churches and other Farnham organisations.
Chair Jennie Johnson welcomed everyone and introduced the speakers. Alec Leggatt, founder of the group, told how the group started and how its early aspirations had been fulfilled to a large extent including those of contributing to the wider community as well as nurturing a social group of like-minded free-thinkers. He outlined his hopes for the next ten years.
Andrew Copson, Chief Executive of the British Humanist Association then spoke of the work on a national scale, emphasising the need for a more balanced approach to religious education and the way Humanists can serve the community.”
