Hi, I live not far from Durham and was wondering if there is anyone local who could advise on activities that would help get me out of the house

Sorry, I don't live near Durham, but if I were you I would pop in to my local library. Ours has a display board full of information leaflets. Lots of ideas there for activities, clubs to join etc. The library staff would also be willing to help if you chat to them.

I live near Durham and live alone, but really can’t help you. The library in Claypath might be a good idea for leaflets etc. I’m sure there’ll be a U3 somewhere. What about WI or are you near a Community/Sports centre that might have local activities. I hope you find something you’ll enjoy.
