December and January diary dates!
Please join us for any or all of these events.
THURSDAY 4th DECEMBER - Chipping Norton Christmas Shopping Evening
We'll have a stall in the Co-op Arcade from 5:30 till 8:15 p.m. We'll be selling Christmas cards, gift bags, gift tags, paper chain kits and small candles and raffling a hamper or two*.
TUESDAY 9th DECEMBER - Commemoration of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Meet at our Amnestree in Chipping Norton's New Street Recreation Ground at 14:00 for a short commemoration ceremony (and photo opportunity) to mark the 66th anniversary of the adoption, by the United Nations General Assembly, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our Amnestree oak tree is looking healthy and standing tall. Alas, 66 years on, there is still much work to be done throughout the world to prevent human rights abuses.
THURSDAY 8th JANUARY - Greeting Cards Campaign
Our January meeting will be dedicated to writing greetings cards to Prisoners of Conscience and their families and supporters. We are grateful to group member, Priscilla Peace, who has made the cards for us to sign. Join us in Chipping Norton's Lower Town Hall, 19:30 to 21:00. The more the merrier!
