Bath Quakers exchange greetings with Friends in Hong Kong

The Editor took greetings from Bath Quakers to Friends in Hong Kong, where a local Meeting of a dozen or so gathers in a room at the local University. The visit didn’t include a Sunday for Meeting for Worship, so we met for a cheery evening meal in a Chinese restaurant.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s transition from British colony to special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China. Local Friends are keenly attuned to Hong Kong and international current affairs, and the workings in practice of the “one country, two systems” principle. Local meeting records date back to the 1950s, though an older tradition must have existed.

Hong Kong local meeting sends its greetings back to Bath.
