We welcome John Tabor who will tell us about the South and Vale Young Carers Befriending Project. This supports a community of children and young people who care for a family member every day and gives them vital time away from the pressures at home.
Pam Martin will show us pictures of her recent trip to China to visit her daughter-in-law's family.
Michael Bailey returns with two more new films based on a 3-week tour of South Africa's Cape Region. We start in the Cape town area: Kirstenbosch Gardens, Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula, with African penguins, many unique birds and mammals, and much, much more.

Our friends John and Janet Hendy will come to bring us up-to-date with the work that they do for the communities in the Ukraine.
