Monthly Mingle at 'The Barn'

This monthly event is for Members to get together and have a chilled-out, relaxed chat. This is usually our 'big' event of month and a great chance to mingle.

It's a good opportunity for new members to introduce themselves too. It can feel a bit strange at first but we've all 'been there'.  You will be warmly welcomed and should feel at home in a very short time.  We are very friendly!

The Barn is a nice pub for this event.  There's no loud music to distract people and everyone can talk in a comfortable atmosphere.  This isn't particularly a 'meal' event but if you feel peckish, you can grab something to eat at a reasonable price.  Also there's plenty of parking outside.

At the end of the night some members may decide to carry on and go to places more lively in town.  Everyone's welcome.

    Thanks for all the encouragement. Maybe I will give the 'mingle' another go. Perhaps on a cooler evening

    The single star is not a criticism. For many I am sure it was great but not for me. Not my scene, too many people and of course no structure for the less confident to fall back on. Thanks though for all the greetings

      Me too, but seeing as many people going to an event like this do (at least initially) lack confidence, I can understand why there was such a big group. I headed out to the smoking area quite soon into the night and I found that a huge help as less people were out there and the people outside were very friendly and welcoming - maybe a bigger area is needed for the growing group x

      It gets easier as you get to know people it just takes a little time. We have all been through the nerves but you grow in confidence. Keep with it, it's worth it :-)
