October 2020 – Happy Tenth Birthday to us!

It was so nice to see 24 members at our Tenth Birthday Party at the beginning of the month and I hope you all agree that, especially in the circumstances, we had a really good get together. The hats provided a good opening to the show and illustrated the diversity of our interests and ambitions – from visits to Jamaica to memories of special family occasions – and the 2 items to be taken to the Desert Island were a fascinating insight into what is really important to our members! The quiz was excellent and I am still surprised to discover that Winston Churchill was born in a toilet – there’s hope for all low born men and women then. Also, who knew our local team Arsenal won the FA Cup last year?

It seems that we have to continue with our virtual meetings for some time to come but I hope the Party proved that we can, and do, have some very enjoyable evenings over Zoom and that the Alexandra WI is a group definitely worth keeping together through these difficult and uncharted times until we can meet up again in person in the hopefully not too distant future.

Congratulations to all of you who have made the last ten years so enjoyable and successful.  Here’s to at least the next ten. Cheers!
