Friendship Link: A Warm Welcome to Yuko who visits us from Japan

On Saturday 19th November President Helen, Sue P, Marion, Maureen, Liz N. Ruth and Lizzie were delighted to meet up with Yuko who is a member of our Friendship Link from SI Aquamarine Kure near Hiroshima, Japan.

This is the fourth time she has visited our club and, on this occasion, we met at Browns for lunch.  We exchanged gifts and presented her with our Centenary Book signed by all the club members.  She told us about her new job “Dyslexia School Search” where she assists in placing children in schools in the UK (for more information visit

We had a really lovely time catching up and Yuko who said “It is great to be back in Bristol meeting up with friends.  The pandemic kept us apart and it is with sadness that I remember our dear friend Lynn who is no longer with us.  I miss her so much and will be visiting her husband Richard, who you will all know, later today.  I have a donation in Lynn’s name which I will give to Richard and hope he will want it to be used by SI Bristol for something dear to Lynn’s heart”.

After we had said goodbye to Yuko Lizzie took her to see Richard who shared many happy memories with her, and he was very pleased to present Lizzie with Yuko’s donation.  We look forward to Yuko’s next visit which we hope will be soon.
