Some events that Bridgend Quakers have been involved in recently (and not so recently!)
Monday 13th July 2009 saw Peter Davies take his allotted place in the Plinth in Trafalgar Square as part of Anthony Gormley’s “One & Other” project.
We had a good experience. Meeting for Worship was held beside the plinth where many passers-by asked questions
and were interested in what we do. Leaflets supplied by Friends House were virtually all used up and passing
children loved the balloons!. Around 100 Quakers from London and other parts of the country joined the ten from
Bridgend. The event sparked interest in The Friend, in the local newspaper in Bridgend and on the London Quakers
website. One Friend who came along was moved to write a poem “Plinth of Peace” to mark the event, which was published in The Friend. One Friend introduced herself as the first Quaker to marry in Bridgend Meeting House and
she is pictured below with Anne and Pete.
