Advance notice - Sheffield Quakers will be hosting an afternoon with the work of Quaker poet UA Fanthorpe in February. This event is open to the public and we are pleased that UA Fanthorpe's partner Rosie Bailey, a Quaker who offers courses at Woodbrooke on UAF's life and work, is visiting us to talk about the poet. U A Fanthorpe's poems express the spiritual honesty, humility and humour of a Quaker outlook on life. There will soon be a copy of her Selected Poems in Central Meeting House library.
