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!

Please note that photographs and/or video recordings may be taken at a 45+ Not Grumpy event. If you do not want your photo/video published online, please notify the group leader of this.

Let's take the advantage of the sunny days of summer to see this lovely Royal Park.

Also, we'll walk to Primorose Hill where we can appreciate a spetacular view across London. 13:30- 14.15 Meet at the Metropolitan Pub (with a small narrow entrance), next door to Baker Street station; where I will have a very large table available for us......and a red Meetup sign for us to see ONLY 6 in total so the first 5 to sign up and pay will be in on our picnic walk 14:15 sharp : leave for the park going strait to Primorose Hill passing for many interesting parts of the park. After leaving Regents Park grounds, we'll walk at semi brisk/brisk walk to the base of the hill and then you may take your own pace up to the top. It's only 63 m above the see level and not hard but one has to be in good health and in good physical condition to achieve this. 15:30 -Back to the park, depends on the pace of the group, we will stroll through the world-famous Queen Mary's Garden. Last chance to appreciate London's largest collection of roses with approximately[masked] flowers and 85 varieties. 16.00 ish PICNIC TOGETHER Also I discovered a little gem inside the park which I'd like to introduce you and we'll have our pic-nic there. 16:30 - End Only £7 - so important we get out and socialise again.

We were just normal teenagers, suffering from the same angst that adolescents have always done, but we had one advantage, the fabulous music which has lived on through the decades. In his talk he uses photos and music and various anecdotes to tell you of his personal journey of growing up and how music affected him and keeps those memories fresh in his mind. By just by hearing a few bars of a song memories flood back like such as, traumas on the dance floor when asking a girl to dance, his first night club, first kiss, first holiday abroad and a forever wish to be older. So Don’t Walk On By or Runaway come with him on a personal musical journey and Walk back to happiness to the days when Barrie was just growing up. Join him as he cruises back in time because there is always Something there to remind him. ================================================================== The talk lasts over two hours split into two one hour sessions on Zoom.
