    • Siobhan13 2nd June 2021 at 4:46 pm

      Hello I’m Siobhan and I live in Prestwich. Love being outdoors, walking, countryside, but mainly the sea (I know! not exactly living in the right location for that). Love travelling (when we’re allowed) especially the Scottish islands. Like sports (watching not playing) football, cricket, tennis. Like a book, film (on a big screen), good box set, chatting, food & drink and generally having fun. Currently working from home for HOME, Manchester’s centre for arts, theatre and film. Yep kind of think that’s me in a nutshell.

      Hi, I’m Tina. I live in Oldham. I am newly retired. I have an allotment and enjoy cooking and eating all types of cuisine, learning new things, visiting the cinema, theatre, museums, art galleries and other places of interest. I also have a dog and enjoy taking her for a walk. I am hoping to join a beginners walking group as I need to get fitter. I used to play badminton (badly and always as doubles) and I wonder if anyone else plays ( just for fun)

Looking to make new friends as it has not been easy with the lockdown and working from home. Are there any get togethers happening?
