MAY 2021

Monday cuppa and chat and Tuesday café walks continued this month, allowing members to meet up in a socially distanced fashion.  We also enjoyed the azaleas and rhododendrons in full bloom in Richmond Park, which we combined with a visit to Petersham Nurseries and a walk back along the Thames to Richmond station.  There was also a very enjoyable walk along the River Chess in sunny weather, which made up for the dull, grey days of this month.   Tulip Siddiq, local MP for many of us, gave us a lovely talk on what it was like to grow up in Hampstead, how she became an MP and how she manages life as a working mother.  We read the Bee Keeper of Aleppo which most of us found to be a good but intense read.  And last, but not least, we went to the ballet and watched Winterisse by  The Ballet Zurich.  An excellent production which many of us would not otherwise have seen.
