Society Today – Forthcoming meetings

On Thursday, August 11th, our topic is:  Should we be more proactive about banning the dumping of our rubbish into the oceans?  How can we do this?  How should the world deal with its rubbish?  Introduced by Val Murton.

On Thursday, September 8th, our topic features Mike Goldsmith, Emeritus Professor of Politics, who will explain to us some possible features of our changing relationships with the EU following the recent Referendum.  This will be a thoughtful and dispassionate explanation of things to come.  It will be very much in the spirit of Society Today as we will have a good opportunity to express and share our hopes, reservations and expectations with Mike.  This session will be one of the most important and real meetings after the noisy month that has just ended.

On Thursday, October 13th, our topic is:  “Money is Ruining Sport”.  A very important subject which has many facets:  fairness, corruption etc.  Can we present vigorous and positive suggestions which will improve sport?  Introduced by Graham and Joy Swallow.

The topic and date for our meeting in November will be announced later.

Group’s Christmas Lunch:  This happy event has been booked for Thursday, December 8th, at 12pm at The Angel, Market Harborough.  Menu and prices will be available in November.  Please contact Jim Callcutt to book places.
