Welcome to Ely Friends. This group is for anyone who has ever spent a night in on their own wishing they were out doing something more exciting, or for anyone who has ever sat on their own in the pub looking at the large group of friends in the corner and wishing they could join them.

The group was started around five years ago by Nicky.  The idea was to bring together people from the local area to make friends and have fun.  It started with fortnightly pub nights and grew from there.  Nicky met her now-husband through the group, and when she was expecting their baby she handed the group over to me. The group is very big, and we want to put on lots of different events, and so the group is organised with the help of lots of enthusiastic and committed members.

We have lots of regular events, including pub quizzes, board games nights, pub nights, breakfasts and trips to Boogie Nights in St Ives.  We also have other events in between such as cinema trips, meals out, book talks and walks. Anything goes!

We are open to everyone of all ages and welcoming and friendly. Male or female, eighteen or eighty, single or married, everyone is welcome to come along and make friends.

So if any of this sounds at all tempting please sign up (it is free).  You just need to make sure you add a clear photo of yourself, RSVP to any events you want to come to and keep your plans up to date. I look forward to seeing you at an event very soon.

Best wishes
