At our Area Meeting in June, we heard about the experiences of Friends in Cheltenham and Forest of Dean meetings of promoting white poppies as a commitment to peace building on Remembrance Sunday in November. But what are poppies, red and white, all about? Friends in Nailsworth Meeting have recently written this short article about the history or red and white poppies, and explaining why they are both relevant today.
Quakers have kept records faithfully since the very beginning of the Society in the 17th century. Written records give us a glimpse of the life of a meeting in earlier generations and we in Gloucestershire do our best to preserve these in good order. In July 2017 Nailsworth Meeting produced a compilation from one section of their past minute books. We attach a copy here for the use and enjoyment of others beyond our Area Meeting.
