Hi I have just joined Silversurfers today, living on my own and going stir crazy during the lockdown

I'm a Scottish lady now living in Carlisle been here almost 3 years but struggling a little to find friends to show me around the area, not possible with lockdown at the moment but would be nice to make a couple of genuine friends.

Welcome to our Silversurfer Forum ... we have just launched Local Community- a new area on the website that can associate your postal district with other members in the same geolocation 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. We are inviting you to be one of the first members to use this section, so feel free to post a new topic to reach out to members in your local area of Carlisle.

Here is the link to the new Local Community section -
