The Pales as a resource of the Area Meeting

Posted by Admin (Margo) on February 27, 2017 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

From 2016 the Pales is seen as a resource of the Area Meeting.

Trustees, the Pales Development Group and Area Meeting are anxious to make it clear that the Pales is open to all constituent Meetings to use for retreats, away days, Meeting for Worship, study days, etc.




Following Trustees concerns and Minutes T17/05 from now on all current information about Pales will be available on AM website so from now on the Pales website privately sponsored and developed by Margo Swiderska with input from Pales wardens Lynda and Martin Williams will remain only a historical resource.

Following 17/16 Minute (28th February 2017) from now on the meeting is recorded as Llandrindod Local Quaker Meeting (not Llandrindod & Pales Quaker Meeting).



Our practice of holding one Meeting for Worship a month at the Pales is not affected by any change of name or by any of the above. We meet at Pales every 3rd Sunday at 3 pm.
