I doubt if many groups have the opportunity to celebrate the wedding of their Leader. Our Group Leader, Gerda Kuklik, was married to John Ferris on Saturday 13th October at St. Peter’s Church in Nottingham and seven members of the group attended. We agreed it was the most unusual wedding we had attended, as there were officiants from three different faiths: Reverend Christopher Harrison, Rector of St Peter’s, Reverend Aiden Hall, a Buddhist monk from Leicester and Reverend Paulina Hlawiczka, a Lutheran Pastor. The service had been very carefully planned so they all made an appropriate contribution. After the ceremony some of us joined with friends and family of Gerda and John for the reception at the White Lion in Beeston, where we hold our meetings.
