What a delight to walk into the garden today and see all the work completed yesterday. Each of you has played some particular part in getting this to happen, and I thank you for it. Everyone of the few that were at Meeting this morning were excited by the possibilities that are now open to us. Gradually the Meeting House and it's environment are getting to the point that we want them, the frustrations of not being able to get on with things evaporate as soon as you see what has been achieved in one day, and that on the day when the Peace Pole was erected at the Pales as well. We should note the 20th April, and celebrate it whenever we feel that things don't go as fast or as far as we would hope.
I think that the signpost at the bottom of the entrance path had just gone up on that day and it seemed as though everything was coming together. I have had that feeling again latterly. Our thoughts on brightening up the Meeting House are progressing. We seem to be getting loads of hirings of the Meeting House, even if few of them make much of a contribution to the funds! The web page is coming together, the garden is looking good, the Meeting is strong.
