Anyone interested in setting up an AfH group in Hackney?

Dear Happiness friends,
I am thinking of setting up an Action for Happiness group in Hackney, Happy in Hackney, every first Thursday of the month at 6.30pm.
Is anyone who lives nearby interested in joining a group in Hackney?
In this first meeting we could get to know each other, discuss what theme we would like to focus on in our group around some tea and cake (or a drink!).

Some suggested ideas might be to go through one one the 10 Key to happier living each time, or the Happiness Action pack together or even to carry out acts of kindness or actions in Hackney to make our local communities happier.

The first meeting will be Wednesday 1st May at the Daniel Defoe Pub at 6.30pm. Location and time might vary in the future depending on everyone's availabilities.

Let me know if you are interested in joining by replying to this post.

Happy days!
Gaia

    Sorry I can't make this (and it's geographically a bit out of my zone) but please keep me informed of progress as I have friends in Hackney who are likely to be actively interested.

    Hello Hackney people! Very much look forward to meeting all of you next Wednesday.
    In preparation of next week, I thought I would leave you with some of the questions we will discuss next week during our meeting so you can begin to reflect on them:
    What do you want to get out of group?
    What theme would you like to focus on in group or actions would you like to do?
    What does happiness mean to you?
    What makes you happy?

    I look forward to seeing you at the Daniel Defoe pub. I will be wearing a super flashy pink shirt, so hopefully you won't be able to miss me! Will try to find a table at the back of the pub where it is quieter or in the garden weather allowing.

    I would love to join it is a great idea!! I just can't make it on Thursdays, any other day would do. I hope you guys have a good time!

    • Anja B.

      Oh, what a shame, this now clashes with an event to discuss capitalism that I am booked to attend, so I will no longer be able to make this meeting :(
      Wednesdays are generally not as good for me as Thursdays.

      Oh, I am sorry to hear this Anja. Keep an eye out for the next meetings, the night we choose might change depending on what works best for participants. Hope to see you another time and enjoy your event!

    Hello! Change of venue to the more spacious Daniel Defoe pub, 102 Stoke Newington Church Street. I will probably try to sit in one of the more quiet tables at the back and weather allowing, we could even sit in their outdoor terrace space.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
