What have our members been discussing, including support to them

A number of the discussions made this month were topics discussed last month, like vitamin B injections and acupuncture.

Discussions on where to hold a Christmas lunch get together is in full swing.

So that’s it for October, and hello to the clocks changing, dark nights creeping in and Fireworks.  Gentle hugs to you all 🙂
