Frome Amnesty group March meeting
We met on Thursday 16th March. It was an interesting meeting and lots of ideas were discussed. The main focus of the conversation was how we could get more people more involved with group events (if they’d like to be!). We now have a whopping 68 members on our email list! Our book stalls and letter writing events are generally pretty well attended but we could do with a bit of a hand on the stall. So if you are reading this and fancy doing a stint volunteering on our next letter signing stall on Saturday 22nd April then please contact Judy at
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org@btinternet.com , any time no matter how short greatly helps.
There are also plans afoot for an Amnesty library display from 29th April – 3rd May and we may also be involved in a Pride event. Please come along to our next meeting if you’d like to get involved with these events and others…! (or contact Nadine or Judy).
From April 29th until May 6th, which includes Word Press Freedom Day on May 3rd. We will have a display in the library focussing on journalists who have been imprisoned for exercising their right to freedom of expression. Look out for the large display boards near the Mendip Council Information Point desk. Watch this space for further details…
Are you a musician, do you organise musical events?
To raise awareness of our group in the town, to raise awareness about what Amnesty International is about and perhaps to raise a few quid for Amnesty to boot if you are already organising an event why not put the event on in aid of Amnesty…?
Please come along to our next meeting or get in touch with Judy or Nadine.
