I just came across something that may be of interest to Gransnetters. Virtual Village Hall organised by the Royal Voluntary Service has online sessions on weekdays of various activities - too many to mention all the categories, but there are languages, dancing, yoga, singing to mention a few. It looks interesting. You can access it via the RVS website, and/or they are on Facebook. I haven’t used it yet but thought I would pass it on so people could have a look.

I didn't want to pass this by. I just might take a look, it sounds interesting. I need a new activity as crochet currently is off the cards as I'm having trouble with my right hand. I'm thinking it may be carpal tunnel syndrome, but have yet to see a doctor about it.

Thank-you singingnutty - it sounds interesting.

That looks like it could be beneficial to people. I'm up for trying the cookery activities.

All of the activities are on Facebook.
I just started watching one video on paper craft flowers.
It looks good
There’s even Ballet for Beginners Joseanne!

Yes, I saw ballet. What a good idea to try it in your home ... just clear all the furniture first! I once sent a table lamp flying.
(Not boasting, but I achieved RAD beyond Grade 5 back in the day).

I watched first half of lesson 1 of British Sign Language. It was very well done.
