The third age

This afternoon I visited the Southampton Centre for the Third Age. Very uplifting as the centre was light bright and airy and aimed to provide a number of facilities for older people. Their pride and joy was the computer suite and I was intrigued to learn that one of the most popular requests was to learn about e-bay!

The bad news is that at the launh of the centre Southampton Primary Care Trust had pledged £15,000 to the centre but this money has mysteriously disappeared. Sadly there was nothing in writing but I shall be chasing up what has happened to the money and why the offer was withdrawn.
