What we're about

Hi and welcome to my group.

I take the intimidation out of breaking the ice allowing singles to meet new people in a fun relaxed environment: Bringing together single people in their prime (mainly 30s & 40s) at fun organised events in the Bristol / Somerset area for friendship and/or romance.

The difference with THIS group is that I organise a variety of EVENTS so even the shyest of people can also join in with the more outgoing of people. You can join in as much, or as little as you feel OK to do so.

Interactive events such as fun quiz nights, BBQs with ball-games or simple drinks gatherings allow members to meet & mingle with other singletons without any pressure, expectation or being contrived. It is not a “dating” group, but a social group. However, if you happen to meet your Mr or Miss Right, then great, I get to get my hat out of the wardrobe(!) - I'm still waiting for Brad Pitt to walk through the doors!

We have been going as a group since January 2014 under the name GEMINI EVENTS and already lots of new friends have been made, numbers & facebook details exchaged, and subsequent evenings out arranged.

We have a facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/geminievent ) and if you click "like" on that page, we can all keep in touch through that. There's also a website http://www.geminiprofessionals.co.uk which lists upcoming events, comments on previous get-togethers and a little more about me and why I set up the group in the first place.

All our members are fun, welcoming and friends you have just not met before. I warmly welcome you to any future events

Ten Pin Bristol, Avonmeads, BS2 0SP


Ten pin Bowling is always a popular event with my group as it's a great way to meet and interact with new people. (Existing members also still welcome). You don't have to have played before, be any good, or be a massive fan - just come along and try your luck whilst mixing with other local singles in an interactive activity. Three ways to confirm: 1. RSVP here and go straight through to paypal, but the price is slightly higher at £15 to allow for paypal costs and the increase in lane charges. 2. Message me to say you're coming (I will RSVP you from this end) and then go to www.paypal.me/geminievents/14.30 and UNTICK the box saying "paying with goods & services 3. Message me to say you're coming and pay £14.30 cash PRIOR to the event. I'm having to put these above procedures into place due to too many people letting me down and I'm then out of pocket. Meet up in the bar area of TENPIN at 7.50pm, St Philips, Avonmeads, Brislington (NOT the Longwell Green bowling, so please make sure you come to the correct place!!! Lol) 2 games of bowling, mingling, having a laugh and then a drink and socialise afterwards in the bar area for those who want to. If you fancy a drink or a bite to eat during the evening they serve a wide range of food and refreshments and this evening they're offering us HALF PRICE DRINKS! As I book venues which cater for a certain number of people, this can often have a detrimental affect to the area I book, bar staff employed etc. I've been advised to adopt the same approach to other groups of having a "strike" system - whereby if people just don't show up / drop out within 24 hours of the meetup starting without good reason, then they are removed from the group if this happens repeatedly, unless they've paid for the event beforehand.


The Temple Inn


COME DINE WITH ME (to replace the 23rd Feb) After the roaring success of the last dining event, I've been asked to put on another. See the fab feedback from the last one here---> www.meetup.com/GEMINI-EVENTS/events/[masked] WE ARE LIMITED TO ONLY 20 PLACES for this one and I'd IDEALLY like 10 males and 10 females if at all possible to just make things more evenly balanced, so first 10 of each will be accepted, message me to go on a waiting list if the 10 of either has been taken. The venue this month is The Temple Inn, recently renovated in Temple Cloud on the main A37 between Bristol and Wells (regular buses direct from the Bristol bus station to the bus stop 140 yards from the pub). We will have our own designated area and there is a car park for those driving. The landlady of this venue will be putting together a set menu especially for us (which will be available in photos shortly) with various options for starter, main and dessert and you can choose either 2 or 3 courses, depending on your appetite! I'm operating a slightly different system for this one. To confirm your place, just RSVP and pay the deposit via paypal, (you don't need an account) which will be refunded to you the morning after the event as long as you attend. Those not attending / dropping out will lose their deposit. This way it will deter people from RSVPing and not showing up. When the menu is uploaded, please private message me your meal options, or put them in the comments below, stating S, M, D and the number corresponding to your choice of food. Let's hope it's as great as the last one. If so, we're in for a fab night out. Please note: I've been advised to adopt the same approach to other groups of having a "strike" system - whereby if people just don't show up / drop out without good reason, then they are removed from the group if this happens repeatedly.
