New "Girl"

Hi I have just joined and am looking forward to making new friends.

I live alone and have been following the rules and isolating - now into my 9th week!

I have no immediate family close by, although my in-laws who live the other side of the city are very kind and ring and text to check on me.

I was planning to put my house on the market at the end of March to move closer to them - then the lockdown happened so I think I am stuck here for at least another year.

Thanks for voting!
Hello ShyGirl and welcome to Silversurfers. A great way to get started is to take a look at Current Topics in our Forum and feel free to engage in anything that takes your interest or our active Speakers Corner section where you may find something that interests you there.

We have also just launched Local Community- a new area on the website that can associate your postal district with other members in the same geo location as you, if you wish to. This means that our members can offer each other support and assistance and connect with new friends in their area. Local Community will also enable you to find local events (in the future!), resources and news from fellow members and local businesses. Here is the link to the new Local Community section -

I do hope you enjoy being part of our community.
