    Hi @Callie123
    Welcome to the community, sorry to hear that you are feeling lonely, but great to hear you get out every day.  Have you looked at what groups are local to you? Your GP surgery, community centres and libraries usually have information on what is going on.

    We are a friendly group here so do jump in and get involved :)
