Folks tend to find it a useful way to meet fellow residents whilst participating in a modest local community self help effort,for WHATEVER length of time they can devote.
So many have forged fast friendships now and it’s worth looking back and noting how we were once strangers , but met at just such an event or similar
If you can’t make this one , there are others that happen UK wide and year round .You can find your nearest groups here.
