April 2021

Where did April go? In a whirlwind of walks – an average of two group walks a week mostly in local parks and some further afield, as well as other self-organised walks.  We have all been keen to get out and see the blossom and bluebells and took in the menagerie in Golders Hill park, some of us remembering going there as children.   We have all enjoyed catching up in larger groups, taking the opportunity for coffee and sometimes something stronger.  We started playing tennis again although we’ll need more players as we’re all planning to be away at various times over the summer.  Penny gave us a most interesting talk on the history of marriage and divorce in England which was beautifully illustrated.  Many of us enjoyed reading ‘The Carer’ by Deborah Moggach and we had a good discussion.  We had a virtual cultural night when we watched Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s production of  ‘Chroma, Grace, Takademe, Revelations’ on YouTube, simultaneously gathering before and after the performance to chat as you would at a normal theatre outing.
