50 Years in Sevenoaks Meeting House
On Saturday 30 October, Sevenoaks Quakers celebrated fifty years of worshipping in the present Meeting house in Holly Bush Lane. About forty people gathered together to look at the display of photographs and memorabilia, to remember old friends, to share memories and to catch up with each other’s news. Two people who were present at the opening of the Meeting House on 1 October 1960 attended. José Gray (above left), then a child of twelve, gave a short talk about the early days in the life of the Meeting in this building, which had been the sanatorium for Walthamstow Girls School before being bought by the Society of Friends. Prior to this, Sevenoaks Friends had met in a variety of venues around the town. Photos: Keith Wade.
