Life after a broken arm

After breaking my arm at Christmas and being told that it would be a long process to get it right, I decided that the time had come for me to retire.

For the first six weeks and with my arm in a sling, I didn’t really feel like doing anything, but as I began to feel better and could do more, the boredom started to take hold. What to do?

Well, The Rockspring Centre is literally a two minute walk from my house so I decided to look on their website to see if there were any courses that would suit me and that’s when I saw that they were asking for volunteers. In for a penny, in for pound, I rang and spoke to Di Hyde and arranged to meet up with her. As a result I now do three afternoons a week and am really enjoying it. A bit of reception and a bit of accounts or anything they want me to do really.

I was made to feel welcome from the beginning and have met a lovely bunch of people. Thanks Rockspring for helping me to get motivated and to start enjoying my retirement.

I would recommend it to anyone who has a bit too much time on their hands and would like to help this lovely well run scheme.
