13 Sept; Our first meeting in Folk Hall after the summer. We caught up, and discussed things that had made us think over the past few months. One thing was Mary Bale, the lady who threw a cat in a bin, and was then hounded by the press. We thought that what she had done was strange and cruel. And the way she was found out (CCTV camera) did seem strange; and the response (she lost her job and became a figure of public hate) also seemed cruel.
We also noticed that the Community Philosophy display on the side of the swimming baths was looking a bit tatty, and we started to think about replacing it. We also thought about recruiting more people for the group, as our numbers are getting pretty small.
