12 people met with Peter and Lucinda for Swanage 's second "Death Cafe on the afternoon of June 14th.

Four had attended the previous Cafe, one other had attended othe cafes in the UK. The rest were 'Newbies' 

As before the discussion ranged widely with deeply personal disclosures and renewed feelings of hard times, particularly when the conversation touched on Child deprivation and young suicides. 

The wide age range range of the attendees gave valuable experience for all of us and at the end there was a 100% request for Swanage Death Cafe to continue.  WE will meet again in September.

Details to follow.
