At St Martins House, Peacock Lane, this afternoon for the regular scheduled meeting of Leicester SACRE (Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education). This is the first meeting since Jill Carr, who was Secretary of SACRE, left Leicester City Council to take up her appointment as Head of RE at Leicester Grammar School. Her role is being filled by Fiona Moss (of RE Today Services) at least until Christmas this year and probably beyond. Fiona was doing this role with SACRE when I first became involved, so seeing her back here feels like having come full circle. We worked together on the early drafts of Engaging with Faith Communities in Leicester.

I'm able to flag up the forthcoming Philosophy Panel I've been asked to convene for St Paul's Catholic School next month. A handful of people at this meeting volunteer their services. Catholic schools, of course, exist outside of SACRE's sphere of influence. I thought that of some members of Leicester SACRE could take part in the event at St Paul's, then that would provide a nice crossover experience.

As I do at the end of all my blog posts referring to St Martins House, I refer any reader wondering about the omission of the possessive apostrophe from the building's name to a letter from Rev. Peter Hobson, Director of St Martins House, published in the Leicester Mercury, 29 March 2011.
