In this blog you'll find details of our past events, as well as other information about what Plymouth Humanists get up to

Mid-summer events

June was a quiet month for events, but what it lacked in quantity it made up for in quality, with a fascinating and educational talk from Jak Whitfield on the contribution autistic people can make to society, especially if their particular needs and talents are recognised. Jak also gave us an insight into his research for the Masters degree he is currently working on.

May talk - What does the Future hold for Legal Aid?

There’s increasing concern being expressed over the effects of cuts to the Legal Aid budget, and after our May talk it’s easy to see why.

May events

We had a particularly varied month for social events in May. Starting with a well attended conservation walk at Warleigh Point, there was then a lively book club where we discussed Robin Ince’s recent book “I’m a Joke and so are You”, and a Sunday Brunch at the Seco Lounge, where despite the post Plymouth Half Marathon crowds, we managed to find ourselves a table outside. Finally, Jessica led us on a walk around Plympton on the Sunday of the bank holiday weekend, introducing us to its fascinating history. Plymouth itself has lost a lot of its older structures, so it was great to see the historic buildings around Plympton

April Events

We had another full month in April, starting with a conservation walk at Warleigh Point Nature Reserve. The bluebells seem a little earlier this year, and so were putting on a fantastic display, along with Wild Garlic and other spring flowers.
