Red Hatters

Red hatters

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple.

With a red hat that does not go, and does not suit me.

Taking inspiration from the poem by Jenny Marshall about embracing life and having fun, rather than being held back by age and what everyone else expects you to be.

It’s all about fun and friendship, borrowing from Cyndi Lauper “Girls just want to have fun!”

If you are looking to grow old disgracefully then this is the group for you.
