What we're about
For us, getting together is as much about the people, as it is about the activity we happen to be doing, so there's a real social focus, and we love the idea of building local friendships, in our local community. We do a lot of dinners, markets, we go to festivals, head to coffee shops and garden centres, take in a movie, put a games night together, have poetry night, watch a play, down the occasional beer over a pool game, and even head out for a stroll or two ... anything that's an opportunity to get to know each other, and have a few laughs. along the way. Friends Aplenty is definitely inclusive when it comes to age (18+), gender, orientation, ability, beliefs and cultural background, 'cos we're a mixed bunch, where the only rule is to respect others in the group. That includes things like not putting anyone down, paying your own way, not using the mailing list as a business opportunity, getting to and from events under your own steam, that king of thing. Any questions or suggestions, just drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you!
"The best thing about the group has been watching real friendships come out of nowhere, seeing people catch up, smiling and chatting away together just makes it."
