We bought a swingball game for the children that visit us but we ended up playing with it. What a giggle we had playing it. We had exercise and laughed a lot at the faces we pulled and the shots that we missed
Jean Hart

My twin sister, who is an avid gardener, has worked with the residents of a nursing home. They have won "Britain in Bloom" awards but more importantly is the engagement of as many residents as possible to take "ownership" of what is now a wonderful, colourful active space! Terrific to observe from the sidelines on my visits!

Chris Maddocks

Keith we share our favourite flower, the daffodil. I agree with all the things that you said about it. Also for me being Welsh it is a symbol of Wales
