"A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon tea was had by all. This was the third annual meeting of the Hong Kong Alumni hosted by Jane Renfrew. Jane updated us with exciting news regarding the new Student Centre which will provide much needed accommodation for Lucy students in the future and the generous donation of Dame Veronica Sutherland of a new College Boat. Those of us who will not be in Cambridge next month will surely miss one of the highlights of the 2013 College calendar - the Pride and Prejudice Conference organised by our President, Janet Todd, to celebrate the 200 years of Jane Austen’s novels.
The tea party was lively with discussion including an interesting dialogue on cross-cultural issues involving (not surprisingly) Hong Kong/China counterparts. The third Hong Kong Alumni tea party was tremendous fun and everyone is already looking forward to the next."
