I love reading the parish magazine about the over 55 groups, skittles, arts and crafts, yoga, walking tours, old duffers doing stuff, I've got 4 more years to qualify.

Then there's the library, a hive of activity for the over 50's, beginner guitar lessons, attempting the Ukelele, or learning Spanish, it's all there.

I think if you haven't learned the guitar by now you are in for a world of pain, but it's probably nothing compared to walking past the alzheimer's society on your way out.

There's a few old folk there that were in despair because the library was shut down for 6 months undergoing renovations, it was their hub, they didn't do much, but I think it was cheaper and better than the pub and nice and warm.

God bless 'em!

51 and a half sir!

I don't look it either, good clean living and a healthy respect for the law. For the most part.
