Let’s have a coffee together!
We held our first Zoom Coffee Morning on Friday 5 March, providing an opportunity for members to socialise with each other, albeit virtually, for the first time in many months. About 27 members joined; after an initial introduction we were divided into small groups of six where we discussed that week’s lecture, and shared news and gossip. We then all got back together and reported what we had discussed to the others.
Our coffee morning was very much a trial but was immensely successful, with members saying they definitely wanted more. It offered a fun way to come together and chat with old friends, as well as meet with newer members, many of whom we haven’t been able to interact with personally this season.
Until we are able to return to the Lowther for our lectures, we are planning to hold further Zoom Coffee Mornings on the Friday morning following the Wednesday lecture. The next one will be at 10.00 pm on Friday 9 April 2021. An email containing the Zoom link will be sent out to members on Thursday 8 April. Hope to see you there!
