Our first Tuesday lunch was at The William IV in St Albans, and our pub nights were at The Waterend Barn in St Albans, The Plough at Tyttenhanger, The Three Hammers in Chiswell Green, and the William IV in St. Albans. At two of these there was an optional meal beforehand. There was also a lunch at the Sky Garden in London, and a special coeliac meal at West Herts College.

Over the first May bank holiday there was a circular walk from the Shenley Tea Rooms, and a walk from St Albans ending with a pot-luck lunch in a member’s garden. Also in May there was a walk around Bricket Wood, followed by lunch, and there was dancing at the dance club in Edgware.

Film visits included some of the Green Film Festival at Campus West (“Racing Extinction”, “Just Eat”, and “Population Boom”); “Midnight Special”, “Victoria, the classic “Vertigo” and “Our Kind of Traitor” at Campus West; and “The Revenant” at the Arena in St Albans. Visits to live shows included “The Solid Silver Sixties Show” in St Albans, and “Jesus Christ Superstar” in Radlett. Music included a concert of Brahms and Tchaikovsky at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield; and some members went to hear Ronnie Scott’s All-Stars at the St Albans Arena.

Other visits were to the Jeyes Heritage Museum and other attractions in Northamptonshire, to the Rolling Stones exhibition in London, and to the Highland Games in Welwyn Garden City.

Our gardening club met for a chat and cake, and our Bridge Club, Snooker Club and Supper Club continued to meet.

There was a quiz with buffet in St Albans in aid of charity, and also our club AGM, with a quiz and supper.
