Hello and welcome to the National Federation of Friends!
First things first: Please be aware that although we don't mind going to the pub with our kids or our parents once in a while, our membership is in their 30s & 40s! If we are too old or too young for you - have a look around meetup - there is bound to be a club for you!
Yes, we are very aware that our name is rather grand, but it does reflect who we are - we are not taking ourselves too seriously (world domination will be our next step ).. What we are taking seriously is having fun and making friends with like-minded people.
We're not like any random meetup group, you'd really have to come and visit us on a Club Night / Newbie Night to see for yourself. Granted, we might scare you off with our enthusiasm for life, the universe and everything, but nothing ventured..
So, what do we do and why is it different? We know that 'just add water for instant friends' won't work, so you're welcome to try us out for about four weeks, see if you like us and when the feeling is mutual, we'll invite you to become a fully fletched member. In that case you will be asked to sign a membership form and hand over a bit of your hard earned cash. Yes, there is an annual membership fee, which is lower than most monthly gym subscriptions, and it will give you access to all events we organise.
As we are not for profit, all monies go back into the club. Events are organised at cost price and we do subsidise some events. We will always try to get the best deal for all. No-one is 'making money' out of this - we have annual elections and encourage all to take part, albeit on the committee or helping out with organising and hosting events.
We meet during the week for not just a pint or two in the pub, we also organise a very popular monthly Thursday's Food for Thought - a different restaurant each time, preferably one we haven't been before. One a month we try our brain at a Quiz Night, pre-dinner optional and if we're lucky we can 'play your cards right'. On a very regular basis we go to the Cinema and we organise Cocktail Nights, Poker Nights and over summer lots and lots of barbecues. Our weekends are filled with Parties, Pubbing & Clubbing, we go for Booze Cruises and Posh Cruises, Mini and Maxi Holidays, Extreme and not so extreme Sports (and sometimes we just have Sunday Lunch to recuperate from all the fun) and you might even end up organising your own favourite event!
Bet you are now even more curious than before.. Well, find the next upcoming Club Night - Newbie Night, RSVP and drop in!
If you rather want to contact us first - feel free and we'll get back to you as soon as humanly possible.
Looking forward to meeting you soon!
