I am definitely interested. But how would I book it?

Hi Mikki, the main ways to book are as follows:

1) See a committee member at a Dorset Humanists meeting and pay with cash or a cheque. The only meeting left before the early booking discount deadline is this Saturday's 'Animal Rights' presentation). Please make cheques payable to 'Dorset Humanists'.

2) Email David Warden at chairman@dorsethumanists.co.uk and request our bank details to arrange a BACS payment.

3) Phone David Warden on 07910 886629 for BACS details

4) Contact us via the contact form on this page for our BACS details

5) Contact us in one the above ways and request a mailing address to post a cheque. This address will be either Simon's or David's home address, (hence why I'm not posting them publicly).

Up until now, we've just been taking bookings at our meetings, but all the above methods should be fine.
