Content shared will include a range of creative tasks, thoughts and ideas, reading material, recipe ideas, images, music, and ways to keep moving with links to online fitness and dance classes.
With Saturday Segments it's over to you - this is your opportunity to share with us anything you've been working on. This could be a photograph, a picture of something you've made, a video, or a piece of writing you've written. It could even be something you've seen, heard or read that you think other members would benefit from and be interested in.
