AN exhibition of the work done by those who served in the Friends Ambulance Unit is currently touring the county.

In the centenary year of the outbreak of the First World War Gloucestershire Quakers hope the exhibition together with a public meeting at 7.30pm on Thursday, May 15 at Gloucester Catheadral will open up a discussion of non-military peace work in wartime.

The exhibition ‘war and peace building’ will be at Friends Meeting House in Chestnut Hill, Nailsworth, between Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 25.

It will be then on view in Lydney, Newnham, Cheltenham, Dursley and Cirencester.

The 12-panel exhibition provides factual accounts, images and human stories of the work undertaken by the Friends Ambulance Unit and the Friends Relief Service, together with a glimpse of ongoing peace activities across the world today by other Quaker organisations.
