Peacemakers in War and Now       

17 June - 5 July

Godalming Museum

 

Did you ever wonder what happened to those who refused to fight in the First World War? Read the life stories of people who lived by the Quaker values, of non-violence, reconciliation and peacemaking throughout this period of conflict by becoming conscientious objectors or serving in the Quaker Ambulance Service.

Local Quakers will be available to talk to at a tea party in the museum 2-4.30pm on Friday 20th June and other activities will be publicised nearer the time.

Godalming Museum is located at 109a High Street, by the Pepperpot.  It is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 5pm. Admission is free but donations are welcomed. The Local Studies library is open in the afternoons from 1 pm to 4 pm. Light refreshments are available throughout the day. Children are always welcome. There is a delightful Jekyll style garden at the rear of the museum and an excellent gift shop. Godalming Museum is run in partnershipby Waverley Borough Council and Godalming Museum Trust.
