Light night and Chinese Tea Ceremony

What a lovely time we had at the February meeting learning all about Chinese tea and the traditional Chinese tea ceremony with Estelle Theanine of August Moon Tea!  We learned about the varying tea types of  delicious tea (green, red, and black), as well the calming benefits of meditating and taking some time to relax with your cup of tea. Great advice in the start of this busy year.  Special thanks to Estelle for showing us this great tradition

Our enchanted flower garden set up for light night in St Mary’s Rest Garden was a success! We had many interested passers by come visit the garden while on Nottingham’s Light Night Trail  and learn about our plans for the garden this year.  Many of them were not aware the garden existed and were excited to hear of some refurbished green space come to the city this summer.  Here are a few photos to showcase the wonderful work our ladies did to decorate the garden.

March’s meeting will take place on Wednesday 8th of March at the usual meeting spot at the YMCA International Community Centre. We  have invited Dr Rowena Edlin of the Nottingham Women’s History Society to tell us all about the history of the Suffragettes. So do join us to hear about the wonderful ladies who helped make Britain what it is today. See you soon!
