TANN hope to be able to plant fruit trees and perhaps soft fruit on the area of land not currently in use. It was good to see the development and deepening of friendships as the work progressed. We are hopeful that our relationship with the group and their use of the Burial Ground will continue.
17 April 2013
We were pleased to take part in Cross Walk with other members of the City Hub on Easter Saturday. The event was planned as an opportunity to encourage people to reflect on current concerns on peace and equality as well as to think about the nature of sacrifice. Our placards certainly drew a lot of attention and there were some lively discussion as well as lots of good wishes. It was great to have members of the public joining us for all or part of the walk and to spend time with people from St Brides’, Somewhere Else and St Nic’s (to name just a few).

All Hardshaw and Mann members and attenders were invited to the day, particularly Liverpool members and attenders. Liverpool Meeting’s ecumenical colleagues were also invited. We learned a lot about how the Meeting and the Meeting House are perceived and how we can imorove that.
7 April 2012
At 2pm on Saturday 7th April, the Saturday before Easter Sunday, the City Hub (of which Quakers are very much a part!) held an Easter walk through the city centre, called “SEVEN”. The theme was nurturing our spiritual strength during this period of economic hardship. Starting outside the Quaker Meeting House, there were stops along the route for readings and prayers, at Chevasse Park, the Law Courts, Holy Corner, Williamson Square, St Johns Market, Church Alley and finally the Quaker Meeting House.
Hardshaw and Mann Area gathering – Glenthorne, Lake District
15 March 2012
The area gathering met on the weekend of the 24th February and had as its focus ‘Wordsworth, Quakers and Poetry’.
Friends attended from Liverpool, St Helens, Wigan, Warrington and the Isle of Man. It was an excellent weekend which allowed us to have a closer look at Wordsworth’s poetry and to tramp around the hills that inspired his work. There were many varied activities including a visit to Dove Cottage, with an excellent talk by the archivist of Wordsworth’s works. The talk had been carefully researched and showed that there were quite a few links between Wordsworth and the Quakers. Thanks to Rosemary, Bernie and Ed for making it all work so well.
