Ladies, do not fear training with weights and body weight. You will not ‘bulk’ up but can potentially improve the shape, curve and tone of your body, not to mention maintain youth! https://

Louise works full-time in Basildon and then finds time for Running Rabbit Arts and Crafts – I don’t know how she does it.

Eric Sandell

My final guests of the week were Eric and Andrea Sandell. Eric is an artist and has had an interest in art since childhood. Eric spoke about the many art related things he has been involved with over the years, discussed different styles and artists he admired. Eric, although now at the age where he could retire from work completely, continues his work as an artist to keep him busy and prevent himself from feeling “like a spare part.” Eric sells his work at local markets and stalls, and makes up to order.
