This month saw the first of the new format “roving venues” Humanist Community. As such, we met for a meal at Akbar’s on Greek Street.

Humanist Community May meeting

Sunday, May 20th, 2012 | Events, Humanism

This month’s Humanist Community of Leeds was looking very promising with the glorious sunshine that the weekend had experienced. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite last until Sunday evening, but it was an enjoyable evening none the less. With food now served until 10pm we were a little less under pressure to get started and enjoyed a long evening of discussions that was arguable even more political than normal.

HCoL February

It had been a while since the last meeting of the Humanist Community of Leeds – we didn’t have a January meeting due to conflicts with New Year and the week after, so this meeting was our first since the start of December. It was cold and icy outside, so big thanks to all those who made the effort and braved the freezing temperatures.

December Humanist Community

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011 | Events, Foundation

Despite the cold and the train, December’s Humanist Community meeting was well attended and enjoyed by all. After all, the colder it is outside, the more a good Sunday Roast is appreciated! Conversation continued long into the night with this month’s topics including foreign policy, education and what everyone’s holiday plans were.

Food stocks

I don’t keep a great deal of food at home. My freezer is always full of stuff, and I have some backup tins in my cupboard, but beyond that, I have to specifically go out and buy food to put in my fridge. The reason is, it never really seems to get eaten.

Taken my recent weekend for example. On Saturday afternoon I went for lunch with Raby. We hit up Las Iguanas which is always a pleasure and it was great to catch up with Raby as it’s been quite a while since we’ve met.

In the evening, we hit Sam’s Chop House, then on Sunday afternoon, I headed over to parents for lunch before hitting up Humanist Community on Sunday evening – which may well have set a new record for attendance.

September Humanist Community

Despite there being very little of summer left here in the UK, the weather remained warm enough for us to sit outside at the September meeting of the Humanist Community of Leeds. This month both religion and politics were discussed – it’s a wonder how we all remain friends with such divisive topics! As ever of course though, the discussions remained good natured and very much enjoyable.

August Humanist Community

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011 | Foundation, Humanism

Despite many of our members being unable to attend because they were at Leeds Pride, the August meeting of Humanist Community was both well attended and a fascinating evening.

The topic of conversation covered social justice, balancing freedom of expression with protection of people’s safety, world languages, equality and whether the sausages Gijsbert had been given were actually vegetarian or not – turns out they weren’t, so it was a good job we had such a good discussion about it and checked before he started eating!

July Humanist Community

Sunday, July 10th, 2011 | Events, Foundation, Humanism

It was such beautiful weather at this month’s Humanist Community meeting that we held the meeting outside. However, just as we were going to get started, a drum parade started behind us! Luckily it had soon passed and we got down to discussing a range of topics – so much so I didn’t even get chance to give the talk I had written – but maybe that is what people were aiming for ;).
