    I have got as far as making the initial phone call and receiving all the relevant forms via email. The London ones are great. Not so much going on at our local one that really interests me. I shall have another look. I do not drive so getting for example to where most of the walks start is not easy or in some cases impossible for me. I have not given up on the local U3A yet though ;)

    Must make time to sit down and concentrate on it. It only cost £10 to join.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    We have a couple very close to us. They look like a fit, healthy bunch though so that counts me out :wink:

    I found it easy to find the groups but difficult to get any further info but I'd certainly be interested in theart classes count me in as the council run courses this year are a let down.
