Looking back over 2017, members enjoyed special visits to Winter Wonderland, the Old Police House stables, Albert Memorial Undercroft, wine tasting at Kensington Wine Rooms, as well as a perfumed reverie in the Hyde Park Nurseries. The annual summer party involved bowls in Hyde Park on a summer evening accompanied with wine and nibbles. We were looked after on all these occasions by expert and very hospitable hosts. We have plenty of fun to look forward to in 2018.
