Stanway in Colchester

Thinking Allowed

After a planning meeting, held in November 2014, the group started in February. The purpose of this group is to encourage frank and open discussion about key issues of the day. It will include all those subjects forbidden within those fabled environments of the dinner party and the officers’ mess! Politics, social issues, global economic matters as well as censorship, family and, indeed, any matters which appeal to the individual.

My initial thought is that each monthly session will be led by one member who will introduce the topic of their choice. This however, will be subject to the decision of the group at its inaugural meeting. Do join us - but bring a tin helmet!

Meetings will take place monthly on 3rd Tuesday at 10.30 am at Lexden.

At the inaugural meeting in February the subject for discussion was, appropriately, Free Speech! Since then the group has disposed of several meaty topics such as:- Russia; Immigration; and the European Union.
