A place for free thinkers - for Humanists in North East Hampshire and West Surrey around Farnham, Alton, Aldershot and Farnborough.
We're an active and friendly group and have monthly pub meetings and talks which are open to everyone. You don't have to join or become a member. We support the local community and have social events. Come and try us out!

Humanism is a positive world view centred on people.
We are atheists and agnostics who share a non-religious ethical outlook based on empathy, reason and evidence. We seek to create a more open, just and caring society.
