On a sunny June afternoon we were once again visited by our twin Women’s Institute, Reculver Beacon WI of Herne Bay on the north Kent coast. After meeting at CUFOS, the group headed off for a tour of the eastern part of Alexandra Park, led by Stephen Middleton of Friends of Alexandra Park. Whilst we didn’t explore far from the Palace, we all learnt something new about our cherished local green space. We then retreated to the courtyard of CUFOS for a very pleasant afternoon tea of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, and cakes, washed down with tea and a fiery fresh punch.
A lovely afternoon was had by all: we can certainly recommend ‘twinning’ with an another WI as a way of sharing ideas, meeting women from another part of the country, and as an excuse for some good old WI baking!
