Welcome aboard lambkins,
I'm living in the states, but I'm originally from Woolwich...in the USA there are more than 700,000 with UC and the numbers are growing every year...so we are not alone. This is a great site with wonderful people, we may not agree on everything but we all feel for each other....I call this my home away from home and I love all the people here.
There's also a chat room which is
open once a week for UC people, I can't remember what day of the week but it's always a good chat.
