Junior Gathering in 2020

Dear Participants and Carers of,

We hope you are all well.

Junior Gathering was due to take place this August, but because of COVID-19 we are very sad to say it will not be possible to hold the event this summer.

Our usual venue will not be available for us to use, and we haven’t been able to identify anywhere else suitable.

We do not think we could run the event in a socially-distanced way that would keep people safe. Along with FSSE trustees and our staff team, we carefully considered what alternatives we could offer. After sitting with the idea we didn’t feel an online event would best serve the young people who build our shared community each summer.

We know this may be quite upsetting to some, and we are aware it is going to leave a funny Quaker shaped hole in the summer. And it is with heavy hearts we have made this decision, but keeping everyone safe is the most important thing – so next year we can come back together better than ever.

If you are missing your Quaker Young Person fix London Link is holding fortnightly virtual events.
