North East Humanists probably deserve to be called the most successful local Humanist  group in the UK. The organisation will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year and can boast a membership running in to the hundreds. Humanist Week falls between 19th and 26th June and this year the North East Humanists have created an ambitious and exciting programme of events. I think that they are the local Humanist group to be emulated and would encourage any would-be Humanists in the East Yorkshire region to spend some time exploring their website to see what the Hull and East Riding Humanist Group could eventually become with a bit of belief in ourselves and the potential to create a local organisation with a wide appeal.
