The Phiroz Mehta Trust Summer School/Retreat 2016
From the Editor
In the September issue of the Newsletter it was stated that our 2016 Summer School/Retreat would be held at Claridge House, Lingfield, in July.
However, the owners of Claridge House have now decided to completely refurbish the interior of the house which will be closed for the whole of the summer, so that we will be unable to hold our Summer School/Retreat there after all.
We have been extremely fortunate at such short notice in finding accommodation at the Park Place Pastoral Centre, Wickham, near Fareham, Hampshire. The dates have been slightly altered — they will now be Monday 25th to Saturday 30th July 2016.
Park Place Pastoral Centre is run by Franciscan nuns and in the 1970s Phiroz held several Summer Schools there. The house is a fine building set in beautiful grounds and has been extensively refurbished. Rooms are en suite, food will be vegetarian and special diets can be catered for at a small additional charge.
The cost for the five nights will be £340 per person in a single room. It is hoped that as many people as possible will be able to attend this Summer School/Retreat, which is generally a very happy and rewarding occasion.
If you would like to reserve a place, please send your cheque for £15 as a non-returnable deposit to Rosemary Monk, 47 Lillian Road, London SW13 9JF. Cheques should be made payable to the Phiroz Mehta Trust.
As we have done in previous years, we are able to offer two completely free places, either for the whole length of the School or for one or more nights to people who have not attended before. Please contact the Trust if you would like to take advantage of this offer. We are also able to help people who have difficulty in meeting the full cost of the Summer School/Retreat.
