On a gloriously sunny day we gathered at the Europa Hotel in Belfast for our first taste of relative
normality since the easing of the Covid 19 restrictions. Our widows were treated to a free blow dry
at a hairdresser of their choice to attend this function and boy did they scrub up well! It was a
delight to meet up with old friends after what has been a very trying time since March 2020,
particularly for those who live on their own or who have been shielding.
The fifty members of our party were shown to the Piano Restaurant on the first floor where we
enjoyed a beautiful selection of sandwiches, savouries and delicious pastries together with tea by
the gallon. Special thanks to Kelly Brown who provided the entertainment – her voice and selection
of songs were amazing. Is there a better way to spend an afternoon than catching up with friends
who haven’t been together for such a long time and feasting on the selection of goodies in the
afternoon tea???? Surely not.
Shout out to all the birthday girls and thanks Kelly for serenading them with Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you…
When our function was over, we all left to board trains, buses or cars home… our bellies full
and thankfully not having to make any tea that night!!
Hoping everyone had a great time at the Let Your Hair Down After Lockdown. Stay safe
everyone and looking forward to seeing you all on our next adventure.
