What we're about

Hello and a very warm welcome to my group.

After running a singles group for 6 years, and finding many of my members are now coupled up, I thought it was time for a bit of a revamp and open the group up to anyone - couples and singles alike.

I started the group Gemini Events back in January 2014, after being suddenly widowed in 2012. Finding myself on my own at 40 wasn't part of the plan and I found it really hard to find other new friends who weren't attached. I didn't think I would be the only one in a similar situation and I was right.... I began Gemini Events as a singles group and have seen countless new friends have been made, numbers & facebook details exchanged, and subsequent evenings out arranged.

I take the intimidation out of breaking the ice allowing people to meet new people in a fun relaxed environment: Bringing together people 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 the monthly ten pin bowing, themed evenings and simple drinks gatherings allow members to meet & mingle with others 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!

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. I also have a facebook profile specifically for members, so drop me a friend request at https://www.facebook.com/lisa.hackett.982

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

Ten Pin Bowling and HALF PRICE DRINKS

Ten Pin Bristol, Avonmeads, BS2 0SP

As we can't do any other social meetups in pubs etc, I've been asked to do more regular ten pin bowling events, so that at least we can still get together, so for now, I'm aranging this fortnightly. However, I have been given several "rules" that we have to abide by due to covid. 1. Everyone has to wear masks - if you've got food and drink in your lane, then you can take masks off. 2. No congregating in the bar but drinks and food can be ordered from your phone app. (We found the bar was open and we could still get drinks at the bar) 3. We can't mix with anyone from other lanes, and if we have more than 1 lane for our group, then unfortunately we may be in different areas. 4. 1m+ distance from everyone in the lane wherever possible. I know these sound restrictive, but they are set by the venue, not me. COST: £14 for two games. Places must be confirmed by paying in advance. No cash on the night anymore I'm afraid. Two ways of paying: Either Paypal by going to www.paypal.me/geminievents/14 and choose to "pay friends & family": Or contact me via PM and I will mesage you my bank details IMPORTANT - As soon as I have upfront payment (via paypal or BACS) for at least 4 people, then I will book a lane for 7pm. If I then get another 4, then a second lane will be booked, for 7.30pm. That then allows for another couple of people to be added closer to the date on each lane - Max 6 people per lane. I will meet each group outside on the corner of Boots pharmacy 5-10 mins before your start time and we go into the venue together as a group of 6. 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! Really sorry but no refunds or carrying payment forward to further events once confirmed, unles you find someone to fill your space.


Bristol city centre

With everything going on with Covid-19 I’ve changed this event to a nominal date in a few months time. Hopefully closer to that date we’ll all be allowed to go out freely! Due to the roaring popularity and success of the other Traffic Light nights I've organised in the past, I thought you might like another one! Many people have told me they are nervous about coming out to an event on their own, they don't know any other single people and it deters them from coming along. So this is the answer.... A SOCIAL NIGHT WHERE YOU CAN BRING ANYONE WITH YOU (if you want), and it doesn't matter about relationship statuses! Many people still come along on their own however, so don't think you have to bring a friend. On arrival, you (& your guests) tell me what sticker you'd like to be supplied with; • GREEN - signifying that you're single and ready to mingle • AMBER - signifying that you're just happy to make friends / it's complicated / Maybe / Try Me! • RED - signifying that you're taken / a wing-man for your friend • DATE: to be confirmed • TIME: • DRESS CODE: Smart / Casual. Whatever you feel comfy in • COST: £4 on the door • VENUE: To be confirmed, but it'll be centtral Bristol if / when it does happen
