November 2020 – Street Art

The Alexandra WI took to the streets – as best we could online – for a walk through the streets of inner east London with Blue Badge Guide Annamarie Dall’Anese. Annamaria opened our eyes to so much creative work which is such a delight to discover: Annamaria felt that the joy of discovery – wandering without a map or guidebook – was key to the enjoyment of street art.

For the first time, we opened our meeting to the WI Wanderers Facebook Group, and we delighted to welcome over 30 WI members from across the country. Shout out to everyone who came along from as far afield as West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Kent, Wiltshire, Essex and Buckinghamshire. We loved having you join us and we have never felt so popular!

Walking tours around London have always been a popular event on our WI calendar, and we were so glad to be able to incorporate this into our meeting schedule for this ‘stay at home’ year.
