    Hi @Julieq48 :) Welcome to the Online Community! How are you doing today? Are you travelling to different cities each weekend?

    People often talk a lot in the Coffee Lounge about a large range of topics.

    I will just say, do be careful to not give away too definite a location of where you are for your own safety.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    People are very friendly and helpful here. Of course you will sometimes get some people that are not as friendly but you'll always get this on any internet forum. However, if there's any issues the scope team are usually very quick to "step in."

    The reason for the advice about your exact location is because this is a public forum and anyone can read everything here, not just members. You should never give personal information such as full name, phone numbers, address or exact location etc etc on any public forum. This is to protect yourself and others.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Off for eye test. Ask you to book online then ring and change because I’m in a wheelchair. I look forward to a day I can book anything online or just get on a train without having to book in advance. How are you after my moan

    Hope it goes well! I hope that days comes soon as well. I recently watched a video on TikTok of a wheelchair user finding it difficult with the train now that the ticket offices are closing. 

    Haha you are fine, vent away! :) I'm doing good thank you. Enjoying this weather!
