What we're about

Life is short ……..Lets Go Get It.....!!

Looking to expand your social circle? New to the Colchester Area and looking to make friends? In a couple or single, this group is for you!!!!

Our Event Organisers and Hosts work really hard to put on a variety of events. However, this is YOUR group and you will only get out of it what you put in. Ideally we would like all members to host one event a year. It could be a Saturday morning coffee; Sunday afternoon walk in the park - anything you are interested in. The more variety the better.

The most important thing is that we have Fun!!!

The average age in the group is 40-55 but there are no limits providing you are 18+.

Come join us.

************All New Members MUST have a Profile Picture before being approved for the group. The picture must be of you alone - no group pictures, pets ,cartoons etc. We ask this so that all our organisers can find you at your first meetup if you are lost and you can find us too!
