The Over 50 Skill Swap Club is designed to help anyone over the age of 50 whether it is to help them meet other people or encourage them to develop their self esteem.

All Members are aware that this FREE Membership may not be able to continue indefinitely but every effort will be made to hold that desire for as long as possible.
The Over 50 Skill Swap Club opened on the 1st of November 2017 and welcomes NEW Members.
