What we're about

East London Meet Your Neighbours organises events in the East London and inner Essex areas aimed at locals who want to meet other locals of all ages. Our club is aimed at graduates, professionals and like minded people who will enjoy and contribute to our activities. Relaxed events, including regular pub socials, are an ideal way to get to know people. Like our parent club most of our members are in their 40s, 50s and 60s but we welcome folks of all ages.

We want to involve our members in organising our programme. If you have any ideas for events let us know.
We share some events with the London IVC membership club, which is our parent organisation and is London's oldest and best social club. For information see http://www.londonivc.com

We prefer members to post their real name and a photo so that we can recognise you at events.
