What we're about

Hi! I am on the look out for some friendly people in and around Colnbrook that want to have some adventures! Don't worry, nothing too crazy. I am thinking after work dinners, cinema, pub quiz group, short walks, comedy gigs. Hopefully there is something you might enjoy! Events will in and around the Colnbrook area, from Windsor to Slough, from Datchet to Uxbridge and other near by towns. Please consider how far you live or work from the area and whether you will be able to attend events, before you join.

The group has been active for a few months. Thanks to all who made it to the events. The group is at maximum members with more wishing to join. With this in mind I will be looking to remove members that have not been active with events in the last few months. Maybe the events weren't for you or the timing was wrong. Either way you are welcome to re-join and RSVP on any event you might like to attend in the future.

Crown Meadow Wildlife Site

Something active on a Saturday morning! Yeah I know, but 10.30 - 12.30 is not that bad and it's a great concept.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for outdoor gardening type activities. When: Saturday 1st June Time: 10.30 - 12.30 Where: Entrance to wildlife site on London Road Short walk from most of Colnbrook. Some street parking spots in Crown Meadow. Best option would be the free car park at the Colnbrook Community Centre, then a quick walk to the meet point. Close to 81 bus stops. In conjunction with: Colne Valley Regional Park Slough Borough Council Colnbrook Community Partnership Groundwork Any questions, just let me know.
