What we're about


(Updated Tuesday 14th May 2013)


Greetings fellow East Lancashirians! The idea of the group is to cover Burnley, Nelson and Colne we might have do some events covering Blackburn if anyone has any suggestions please put them forward.

Is anyone else thinking what I am thinking, that there seems little of any real substance to do around east lancs, unless your sole interest in clubbing? Does anyone else want to meet up for interesting conversations, whilst doing meaningful activities, and whilst building supportive local networks.

A wide range of lovely people of varying ages. The main aim of the group is have laughs get us out and make new friends. Any members who have an idea for an event/meet please feel free to message one of the organisers and we can put it up. Some of the events we have done :-

quiz nights
cinema nights
flower show
coffee mornings.(not everything involves alchol)
pub crawls
Christmas markets.
Got an afternoon watching ice hockey lined up. Some ideas for more are :-

trips to Blackpool especially the pleasure beach.
Nights out in Manchester Inc salsa dancing.
Comedy clubs.
live music(if you know a band feel free to recommend them)

The use if the site requires paayment from the main organiser so where some groups charge every month wether you attend events or not we don't. We charge a pound to be given to the organiser but only for the events you attend.

The only rules for members are to be respectful to each other and if you are unable take an event please change it on the site. Failure to notify an organiser that you won't be attending an event will count as a strike and three strikes means you will be taken out of the group. We do understand that emergencies and other commitments do come up but please either change your rsvp to a meet or message the organiser so we aren't stood around waiting for someone who isn't going to show.
