  ♉Alex and ♉Peter get married

I was really pleased to be invited to Alex's wedding an event for which we have been waiting for 65 years when she tied the knot for the first time on her 65th birthday.

The marriage ceremony took place in ♉Hastings registry office followed by afternoon tea at the ♉Royal Victoria hotel and then on inevitably to their local, the ♉ ♉ Horse and Groom 2 links in Mercatoria, St Leonards. An enjoyable event not in the least diminished by the necessity of keeping within the covid regulations.
