at 1230 for a buffet lunch costing £9.00, with the formal
meeting beginning at 1330. We have invited David Jones to
speak to us on the theme of "The NHS and Social Care -
Current challenges and the future".
We will elect Officers and the Committee and there will be information about the Sonnenberg conferences taking place around Europe this year and an open discussion about SAGB and the Sonnenberg movement.

Saturday 20 - Sunday 21 October, 2018
This year we will visit Halifax and the surrounding area of Calderdale in the heart of West Yorkshire.
Within in walking distance or a bus ride from our venue of
the Imperial Crown Hotel (in the town centre, opposite the
train station) are many interesting places: the newly
refurbished and unique Piece Hall, which comprises many
shops and T'Works industrial museum; the Minster Church of
St John the Baptist; the Town Hall; Borough Market;
Bankfield Museum; The Square Chapel Centre for The Arts; the
Dean Clough Mills complex; Eureka! Museum; and Wainhouse
Tower, the tallest folly in the world.
We shall meet in the Imperial Crown Hotel on Saturday with
a buffet lunch followed by a short meeting to catch up with
Sonnenberg matters and each other. Then we will have
time to visit the Piece Hall and other places as members
wish. Dinner will be in the hotel and, for those
wishing to stay over until Sunday, we will be visiting
Shibden Hall on the outskirts of Halifax. This was the
home of the famous diarist Anne Lister (1791 - 1840) and is
at the centre of an attractive park. Lunch will follow
the visit before members depart. It will of course be
possible to stay in the hotel both before and after the
meeting for those wishing to become better acquainted with
Car travel: the most straightforward road access is from
the south of Halifax, via junctions 21 - 26 of the M62,
which in turn connects to the A1, M1 and M6.
Train travel: infrequent but comfortable and very
convenient services are run by Grand Central direct from
Kings Cross the Halifax. Much more frequent services
run from Hull, Leeds, Blackpool and Manchester.
Other travel: Leeds Bradford and Manchester airports are
within an hour's drive east and west respectively, and the
ferry port of Hull is about an hour and half's drive to the
east of Halifax.
It is important to book as soon as possible to ensure
rooms, particularly if you require a ground floor
room. An application form is included in the latest
newsletter and more information is available from Stuart
Sweeney at email@example.com.
