Globetrotters in Chester
Brenda Rewhorn: “Tatting Around Japan”
Travelling is an education in every aspect and I have always enjoyed visiting all parts of the world as well as every corner of the British isles. I was invited and visited japan on four separate occasions and much of the visits were staying with local people who have become friends. The slide show is a compilations of all those visits from one end of the country to the other.
Beth Gibbons: “Open Bethlehem”
I visited Palestine/ Israel on an Alternative Pilgrimage, staying in Bethlehem and Nazareth in October 2015. I spent the majority of my visit meeting with local people and organisations working for peace with justice. The trip was life transforming and I subsequently became a Bethlehem Ambassador. The slides will show Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Hebron, Nazareth, Jericho, Haifa & the Galilee area. The talk will include information about the opportunities and the welcome visitors will receive in Palestine. I will also provide information about places to stay and organisations that can provide an authentic experience of the rich Palestinian culture which survives despite living under military occupation.
