We are delighted that we have been able to hold our monthly meetings online over the past year, enjoying a rich variety of talks and even recruiting some new members.
We have had talks on topics ranging from Egyptian archaeology to black holes, and heard from speakers ranging from a professional dating matchmaker to a remarkable female adventurer who circumnavigated the world solo.
Despite the limitations of being online, we have also managed to bond over activities including book folding, at-home scavenger hunts, baking and photography competitions, bingo, quizzes and a hilarious self-portrait contest.
The meetings have provided a real lifeline over the various lockdowns – and our president Sarah has proved to be the most fantastic Zoom host (thank you Sarah!)
We also managed a wonderful summer garden party in the break between lockdowns – which was such a success we hope to make it an annual event.
We recently held our AGM online – the voting thankfully made easier in that we only had one candidate for President!
And we’re very much looking forward to the year to come – with upcoming events including talks ranging from beekeeping to taxidermy, as well as (Covid allowing) a local history walking tour, a visit to Harrow’s Headstone Manor Museum, a fitness class and of course our summer garden party!
