24th Nov 2012: Celebrate the Christmas Season with us …

… from 1.30pm at Bank St Chapel, Bolton (directions).

The North West Federation and the Theosophical Order of service combine for a special

Inter Faith Celebration

of the Christmas season.

This is always a happy afternoon when, with your help and participation (individually and collectively), we have readings, poetry, singing, and interactive contributions to make it a joyful afternoon. We will, of course, be singing carols and seasonal songs to celebrate the season.

A ‘Bring & Buy Sale’ of crafts, homemade produce, gifts and ‘good as new’ items will be held in support of the T.O.S. (it will be a great help if you price your items, please). There will also be a small selection of new and used books for sale.

Soup and rolls will be provided at 1.30pm, with a “bring and Share” vegetarian (please) tea later in the afternoon.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE YOUR TALENTS IN THE ENTERTAINMENT for around 5 minutes or so, please let us know the following details ASAP: Title of contribution, and estimate of time required, by email to Maureen (mla.gold “at” yahoo.com) so we can balance the programme, in which we hope to combine traditional and contemporary ideas for the celebration of the season.

Honorary webmaster wanted!

Wanted: a TS member who knows how to use a wordprocessor, and email, to accept some training (and ongoing supervision), and take over the running of the nwfederation.org.uk network. As a byproduct of this, you will learn enough to run your own websites, forums and blogs, and have the benefit of an experienced mentor (me!) to check things out with.
Email webmaster “at” nwfederation.org.uk and we’ll have a chat.

25th – 27th May 2012: Alston Hall Weekend

There are a few places left for this weekend, on “Reincarnation, Karma and the Seven Rays.” Stay the weekend, or attend as a day-delegate. You can download a program and a registration form from here for printing out, or phone the organiser, Maureen Atkinson (01282 422278) for copies through the post.

A map and directions to Alston Hall is available on their website (link).

Please note the stayover and day registration fees include (vegetarian) meals and incidental tea/coffee breaks. Alston Hall insist that all conference delegates have their meals provided in-house, which accounts for the apparently higher day cost than usual. No picnics, we are afraid! – Alston Hall are a well-known wedding destination, however, and the quality of their food is said to be excellent.
