Britain Yearly Meeting

Junior Yearly Meeting - preview

Fiona Foulkes describes her first JYM

My very first Junior Yearly Meeting, and I arrive both excited and nervous about the next four days
  • Arriving at JYM, we are greeted by a group of waving, smiling Friends in various colours – made up of Base Group Facilitators (BGF), Arrangements Committee and Over Twenties who will be taking care of us
  • After trading biscuits I brought for a mug, I embark on my journey of various 'Quakerly' activities, including painting mugs and attempting to find my way around the maze-like buildings of the Pioneer Centre
  • Already, I am feeling overwhelmed by the mass of happy friendly people, who all seem to know each other already
