I cannot believe it has been a whole year already since that very first Tamesa Oasis meeting. I am so very thankful to everyone who has attended our events, officered initiations, funded our endeavours, brought food, drink, wine, laughter, built furniture, traveled for miles and miles to be here, washed up, set up, cleaned up and just been here. A local body isn’t its body master, it isn’t its location, it isn’t its name, its the brethren grouped together within those things and each and everyone of you have made Tamesa in this last year.

And we have had a brilliant time putting it all together. Its been tiring, at first it was incredibly stressful but I love my brethren and I love being at the centre of something as good as Tamesa Oasis.

We had cake in the shape of a fleur-de-lys!

To mark our first anniversary we performed an Isis invocation as the name Tamesa is the Celtic name for the river Thames which is known as the Isis further along it. We now have a lovely new Isis statue as part of our temple and this morning, after we had performed the invocation, we took her down to the river’s edge and bathed her in the waters.

Here’s to another year!
