What we're about

This is a group for those of us who accept who we are and like who we are - do things alone however would prefer to share some of our leisure time with like-minded. We are interesting and interested in so much...walking in the countryside, travel, week-end breaks, playing cards, theatre, opera, dining, visiting galleries, exhibitions, playing tennis perhaps, book club, art.......it would be good for members to come up with ideas that we can join in with...we're not necessarily 'grumpy old' but do not like loud music, gum chewing or bootcamps!
