Death Cafe poster too 'dark and gloomy' for library notice board

The Ham and Hi gave a balanced view, although they described the cafe as a 'bereavement group'; it is ridiculous that, after this has run without problems for nearly 2 years, library management have censored our poster.

It was nice that some people from last time came back again, plus some new people.

We looked at talking in small groups and I had prepared some discussion questions to choose from, but the preference was to talk in a large group (there were about ten of us) and this was relaxed and open. There was  feeling of relief that death was not a taboo here, and people shared openly their sometimes distressing reasons for attending. 

I hope to see some of you again at the next Alexandra Park Death Cafe.
