Hobnobbing!- to socialize, mix and mingle

I have started this site because as a newbie to the Isle of Wight, I've found it difficult to get to meet new people and make friends. I've searched unsuccessfully for a social group on the island so I'm taking the plunge myself in the hope of bringing together a friendly, diverse, informal collection of people who are also looking to revamp their social life.

I've listed lots of activities that we could be about, at this point in time it's just about seeing who is interested and what you would like to do, so any suggestions for other events and interests are happily received.

Everyone is welcome, no matter if you are new to the island or are already established here. I would like the group to focus on friendships rather than dating, so couples and friends are equally invited.

The age range I will only restrict to ' young at heart' so interpret that as you will

I look forward to hearing from future hobnobbers and exploring this lovely island in good company!
