Good evening all,

Happy New Year! I do hope your 2022 began well. Let’s hope that it is a positive and healthy one for everyone. Some sessions begin this week, but most tutors restart next week. Please see timetable for details.

Thank you to everyone who shared with me their New Year resolutions, so interesting to see what some of you want to achieve this year.



60+ Oyster Card

From Mark L:

Age Concern UK are deeply concerned about proposals to phase out the 60+ Oyster Card over a period of several years.
This is a regressive and counter-productive step that unfairly punishes future generations of older Londoners.

GBPTM is a really useful online resource, which relies on volunteers. A brilliant new volunteer guide has been launched and we’re supporting the drive for new volunteers.
