A POETRY READING FOR GEORGE BELL
SUNDAY 5TH FEBRUARY AT 6.30pm
CHICHESTER FRIENDS’ MEETING HOUSE
A well-attended poetry event took place at the Friends Meeting House in Chichester last Sunday to mark the life and work of Bishop George Bell.
Poems were read on the twin themes of Love and Justice, including those by TS Eliot, John Betjeman, WH Auden, Wendy Cope…and George Bell.
At the end of the evening there was a collection for the Medical Foundation for Victims of Torture.
A similar event is now planned for Bishop Bell’s 60th anniversary next year.
