At a well-attended EGM yesterday evening the Brighton & Hove Humanist Society voted in a new constitution and to change the name of the Society to:-
BRIGHTON & DISTRICT HUMANIST SOCIETY
This name change was in recognition of the geographically diverse membership of the Society which draws many people from outside the City boundaries.
The EGM was followed by a well-received presentation, "Towards a Secular State" by Gerard Phillips Vice-President of the National Secular Society. This was followed by questions and discussion.
