Hello all! I’m Jo, I love fellwalking, paddle-boarding and crafting. I still haven’t taught myself to like coffee or seafood so don’t consider myself a grown up even though I’m 55! I’m looking forward to hosting the Richmond group, where I hope to get to know lots of new people while we try out some excellent new things. Oh, and eating cake, Donna and Charlotte said that is positively encouraged!
Our Meetings for the next few months
