What Is There To Do In Shoreham Once Retired? by Mo Sheppard (Member 10257925) on 12-Feb-2011
Just found this site after looking for some form of club once retired. When I was working there seemed to be a huge amount of things to join, now there seems to be nothing.
Anyone any ideas for a 'young' 60's...? Pleeeeeease let me know or perhaps start something.

    You could volunteer to be a custodian at the Marlipins Museum, find out a lot about our town and its history and meet other interesting people.n Just go in and say you may be ionterested - you'll be made welcocme.

    You could join Shoreham Probus club. We meet for lunch and a talk on the last wednesday of each month at the Amsterdam.

If anyone knows her whereabouts/name change etc I would love to hear from her. Her dad was a sound engineer [i think] in TV and they lived in Shoreham. She was apparently named after Glynis Johns the actress because her dad {?} like her. I liked her mum's spaghetti bolognese!... more >>
