June 2022

We’ve had a great month in June, a fascinating guided walk around Kilburn taking in sights and buildings some of us had never noticed before.  Who knew that Kilburn once had the largest cinema in the country?  We all loved the mural of June Rose Barber.   We rounded off the walk by celebrating our oldest member’s 80thbirthday at a pizza restaurant.   Doubles tennis and more importantly coffee afterwards with our non-playing friends continues to be popular.  We had a really good discussion of Helen Lewis’s  ‘Difficult Women A History of Feminism in 11 Fights’. Everybody enjoyed reading the book and the discussion ranged across many of the topics highlighted in the text, with members focusing on issues which had particularly resonated for them and sharing some personal experiences to illustrate the points that Lewis was making.
