Don, your garden is looking wonderful. The tulips are magnificent. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on the allotments - hopefully before the summer is over! All good wishes to everyone.

Saying hello to everyone..
So I become a volunteer and then sadly lockdown happens.
Thinking of you all.
Happy Easter.
With love. Lucinda

Happy Easter Pensioners. I wish you a Blessed Day and best wishes despite the current circumstances. I look forward to assisting you in the gym as soon as we can return to supporting you! Until then, be strong and let us get through this together!

Tim we look forward to your return too! Take care of yourself until we are able to see you here again helping Pensioners in the gym :)
