Travelling to spaces within and out, through myths across cultures, at times of war and cravings for peace, what comes First, the gods or us.

Anyone who would like more information on what is involved should speak to one of the board members.
Any Other Business. This meeting provides members with a chance to raise issues - we do ask for prior notification of these so that we can prepare a meaningful answer! The e-mail address to use is email@example.com or by letter to Richard Bryan c/o the village hall.
