    In Horndean about 120 publishers but in Spain it fluctuated massively. Some weeks we had more tourists than locals with some locals very inactive. Publishers was about 15 or 20 but including visitors we might get up to 45 bums on seats in the summer.

    5 years ago 120 pubs but now 70 at the most! The WT must be feeling the pinch now Sunday talk is the best they get around 100 drones, but for the book study/ service meeting then it's around 60 in total who bother to go. It's time to close the doors and sell off the hall and make them travel to another one.

    I'd say about 20.... some meedings 10 or less in the winter, they have congregations near by come and help with meedings... so encouraging hu? 3 DA, DF in the last 12 months.

    Found sheep what country are you in? These numbers are less than was considered a book study group back in the days of them in the UK, the hall must be running up debts evey week with so few going to it.

    when we were "in"
    just over 100 publishers.... LOTS of kids
    we had 4 kids and that was average size

    i know several now grown kids have moved away
    to find work, get married & have kids, etc but i have
    no clue who remains, and frankly dont care much.....

    i find that i am forgetting the names
    of the people with whom i spent 20 years...
    i hope that lapse is reciprocated!!!
