Hi John. Great to hear from you and welcome to You're Welcome! Good on you for keeping things going at this strange time. What would we do without Zoom? We'd love you to add CFS to You're Welcome; you can do this by signing them up as an organisation. You can then list them in the Things to Do section and each event you run on the Events pages. We're on hand to help with any questions you might have.

I expect there are people with many more worries at this time.

Hi Alex. It's great to have you onboard and thanks for starting this post. There are many people who are in a similar position as you in terms of looking for new ways to get out and have fun with the family. Have a look at our Events and Things to Do pages and see if anything takes your fancy. There's an online quiz tomorrow afternoon, a creative writing workshop on Wednesday evening and some laughter yoga coming up.

I love cycling along the Family Cycle Trail in the Forest of Dean. Prior to the Lockdown in March 2020 Leonard Cheshire's Gloucestershire Wheels For All project had just started delivering inclusive cycling sessions from the Forestry England Mallards Pike site near Parkend in the Forest of Dean. There is a 2km circular accessible route suitable for adapted bikes, that starts and finishes close to the car park, toilets (just reopened) and cafe (currently serving takeaways only). We are looking forward to restarting our sessions (keep an eye on the You're Welcome website to find out when) but in the meantime if you have your own bikes and a means of transport, I thoroughly recommend the beautiful, blissful and life-enhancing forest environment. That 2km route links with the main 11km Family Cycle Trail which has several flat stretches and is mostly manageable on a recumbent trike - but does have some uphill stretches where you might need a bit of help from a companion unless you are super fit and have lots of gears! If you would like more information please contact Project Lead MaryClare via the You're Welcome directory.

I love the Family Cycle Trail! I had a memorable ride around the whole of it last year, when we weren't planning on going that far! It was lovely though. I've also done the 5k route from Mallard's Pike on my hand bike with my brother - really enjoyed it but it was hard work on some of the uphill bits and I needed a push from my brother!
Sorry - my fingers slipped on the keyboard! There's also the Cheltenham race course for cycling.

Ooh maybe this is a good excuse for me to now get Disney plus and watch the final film again, which only came out about 3 weeks ago!

Definitely! There is so much good stuff on there now including loads of new Star Wars series about the Clone Wars and The Mandalorian. I can't keep up but my teenager daughter says they new series are all brilliant.
Decided to watch the prequel series this weekend, and have just watched episode 1! A good way to spend a weekend afternoon! I won't have Disney for long so I'm hoping to do the whole saga in the next few weeks...

InCommon, which brings generations together, is sharing some games and activities around a different theme that families can try with older friends and relatives over the phone or video call. All the activities so far are available here. https://www.incommonliving.com/buddies-activities
Hi Philip. Thanks for letting us know about this. Do you think you could let Gloucestershire Cancer Exercise know about our new site? It would be great if they signed up as an organisation to promote what they're doing. Let us know how it goes.

Thanks Megan - Cancer Exercise is really just me and one other at the mo - we are growing it with local authorities, Macmillian and others
I'm on the mum's side on this one! 'Always look on the bright side of life....' I think it annoys my kids too haha.
Thoroughly enjoyable story, thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for listening. Glad you liked it. I thought Jacob read it really well.
