What we're about

Welcome! We are a group for people over 40 who are looking to socialise in the Canterbury and Thanet area.

Here are some of the social gatherings we enjoy, dining, golf, theatre, coffee mornings, lunches, social walks (no dogs please), book clubs, comedy, live music, salsa, English Heritage days and our ever popular Chill Out Friday.

In addition to our regular social meetings we do like to put some main events like Ascot Day, City Breaks in Europe and Staycations.

We hope you ENJOY this friendship group as much as we do, our aim is to provide events that offer a diverse range of options for you to find like minded people and make new friends along the way.

Liz Hartley (Main Organiser)

Liz Hartley's attentive, and caring hosting towards me at many events has to honestly be the only reason I have managed to stay in this social group. l am very shy socially, and am prone to social anxiousness. Liz's warm welcoming of me across events has really made a difference in feeling included. I have felt totally supported, introduced to others, and felt genuinely looked after by her hosting skills across settings.

Liz's passion as main organiser has really made a difference. I feel she is an excellent host, passionate organiser, and has the energy, and enthusiasm needed to maintain our group at the awesome level. KS

Absolutely brilliant night totally epitomised what I love about this group fun, friendship and variety xx

Your Chill Out Friday evenings are great, relaxed and just people out for a good chat and a catch up. You made me welcome and it was lovely seeing you all again and great company.

What an amazing New Years Eve, thanks Liz loved it xx💃🕺 and hope they raised lots of money for Save the children. Xxx

I feel this group has helped me find my purpose again, it has really re-motivated me, thank you.


If an event you would like to attend is full, do go on the waitlist, we always do our best to open waitlists subject to venue size.

If you RSVP to attend an event and you are unable to attend please update your RSVP to not going in a timely manner. This is essential for our event hosts to know who is attending and for other members to attend who may be on a wait list.

Unfortunately, NO shows and last-minute RSVP changes can impact on other members and our venue bookings. If a member has 3 no shows or regular last minute changes to their RSVP we will ask you to only RSVP for online events as we view this as basic good manners.

We are open to guests joining you at events and ask that they become a members after 3 guest invitations.

The event host will confirm how and when payment is required. If you are required to pay on RSVP it is your payment that secures your place rather than your RSVP.

The organisers of this MeetUp are not responsible for refunds unless an event is cancelled via this group.

The main organiser Liz Hartley reserves the right to refuse or withdraw membership where it is considered that membership is either inappropriate or detrimental to the values of the group.
