FROM FIFE SPSC:
Meeting Friends’ Meeting House 2 howard Place St Andrews 6.30 Thursday January 20th All welcome
Thursday’s meeting should be a good one and we have a very full programme.
We have three guest speakers – Sofiah Macleod has recently returned from an SPSC delegation trip to Bethlehem over Christmas and will tell us of her experiences – with pictures.
Rafiq and Rami – two students from Nablus – are coming to the end of their stay in Dundee as part of the twinning arrangement between the two cities. They will tell us about their experiences in Scotland and their visit to one of the committees of the Parliament, as well as their experiences of studying at home. They will be happy to take questions.
Members of Fife Arab Society will also attend – and will bring along refreshments! Anybody else who would like to bring along some food to share will receive many accolades!
There will also, obviously, be an update on forthcoming events and how we can all be involved.
Look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Thursday
