An open-air second-hand sale helps Friends reunite

St Albans Quakers #SustFest21

The Meetinghouse garden small as it is served its purpose

For the past few years, St Albans Friends (Quakers) have taken part in the Sustainable St Albans Festival by having a second-hand sale of books and goods alongside Preserves and Plants.

This year with Covid restrictions we were advised to have our event outside. While the purpose of the event was to be sustainable by recycling goods it had the added effect of encouraging Friends back to the Meetinghouse after an absence for some of over a year.

It felt like a wedding as we greeted Friends that we haven’t seen in the flesh for a time.
