February 2021

We saw lengthening days and drier, sunnier weather throughout February.  Many of our members have had their first Covid vaccine which cheered us all up.  

We had an excellent and inspiring talk by Misba Khan on her expedition to the North Pole.  Misba started her adventure career by going out with her local Ramblers’ group and has been to the K2 base camp since going to the north pole, so every journey starts with one step.  All this while working for the NHS and raising her family.

We had our first zoom theatre evening and watched the amazing Cirque du Soleil.

Jigsaws became an unexpected ‘thing’ this month with a sudden flurry of sharing of various puzzles.

We have continued to meet up in socially distanced pairs for health enhancing walks in our local area as well as meeting on Mondays for tea and chat via zoom.

Our book of the month, Americanah, proved popular with many members of our book club.

And lastly, a supply of seed potatoes was welcomed by and  shared amongst our gardening members.
