Hi First time I have posted and I just want to introduce myself. I live in Lincolnshire, am retired and have time to do the thigs I love, but with the restrictions it makes travelling in my "bus", long walks and visiting family and friends, very difficult, so I am exploring new horizons and looking to chat with lovely people and make friends along the way.

Hello! I also hate the restrictions...It's difficult to cope with it but I hope that this year something will change, hopefully! What I miss the most is travelling and I hope that everything will be open soon. If you want to chat I'm here for you! Nice to meet you!

Hello Carole, it is extremely difficult times that we are going through, what sort of new horizons are you looking into? I recently volunteered with a local charity to me in hertfordshire called the human milk foundation and I have been thoroughly enjoying my time spent with them even over lock down periods, as work done from home., I just helped to source prizes for their online quizzes, they were so appreciative. I currently still work part time however for the Nottingham Building Soceity. What did you do before you retired?

Hi Jam16
Nice to hear from you.
I have been volunteering too
Currently with a lovely group called Evergreen and we visit lonely isolated folk 70plus, for a chat and. Cuppa and we have social gatherings a couple of times each year. As lockdown is still with us it’s limited what we can do but a weekly phone call keeps us in touch with our friends. We are delivering a Valentines meal to lots of people this weekend.. it all helps to keep people connected.
I was also fundraising for a couple of groups too but the lid is on that currently.
And employment.... Majority of the time was spent in Sales, Sales Management with all the facets that go with it
Keep up the volunteering, I shall be looking for more projects when we can get out there
Be safe
