What we're about

Greenwich and Lewisham Meet Your Neighbours organises events in the boroughs of Greenwich and Lewisham aimed at locals who want to meet other locals of all ages. We aim to recruit graduates, professionals and other folks who share our tastes in activities. Relaxed events, including regular pub socials, restaurant visits, music events, walks and more are an ideal way to get to know people.

We want to involve our members in organising our programme. If you have any ideas for events let us know.

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