Rookhow meetings

Sep 2, 2020


​If you’d like to have a chat and have some time to spare on a Wednesday afternoon (any time between 3.30-4.30) then come along to the Rookhow Zoom cafe. A friendly group of locals, Quakers and Rookhow supporters who since lockdown have met weekly to share recipes, books we’ve read and have chatted about a range of topics from bivouacking, broadband and haircuts to  ‘What do Quakers believe?’  We’ve also shared news, photos and videos about what’s going on at Rookhow. New people always welcome.


Or you can join by phoning from your landline/mobile: Tel 020 3695 0088 (you’ll hear us and we’ll hear you!).
