Have you got to spend some time at home? Maybe you had an accident, or there is some crazy virus loose. Anyways this page should give you some local pointers.
We could use more contributors/admins. This is a volunteer run site that aims to be a static directory of things to do, services and businesses locally.
Help adding/removing to this list and trying to add to the events table is always appreciated and you can learn to use WordPress.
If you run a local group, you can have your own page on this site for nothing. Just reach out. See the www.roslinvillage.com/shed as an example.
