Quakers meet

Quakers meet
October 27 2016.

Town Hall Butter Market hosted the customary cake and coffee stall last Saturday morning, this time the turn of the Quakers, writes Kenneth Bird.

They were showing the flag peacefully and perhaps making a small difference. That’s what they’re about, they say.
