In place of a guest speaker the December meeting took the form of an in-house debate with members of the discussion group proposing two motions to the audience. The motions were “we should embrace the digital age” and “should we continue to celebrate Christmas”.

The next meeting will be on January 3rd 2013 at Diss United Reform Church commencing at 10.30am.  The guest speaker will be Harry Parsons who will be giving a talk entitled Building The Millenium Tower (St. Edmundsbury).

Both motions were argued with valid points being raised on both sides but when put to the vote it seems many would prefer a warm handshake to a digital embrace. With regards to the Christmas celebrations and putting the religious element aside it would seem that until we can find something else to bring a little cheer to the long dark days before the turn of the New Year, Christmas will have to suffice.

In conclusion it was felt that by letting common sense prevail and selecting the best bits of both the digital age and the Christmas holiday the benefits could be enjoyed by all.
