What we're about

Hobnobbing!- to socialize, mix and mingle

I have started this site because as a newbie to the Isle of Wight, I've found it difficult to get to meet new people and make friends. I've searched unsuccessfully for a social group on the island so I'm taking the plunge myself in the hope of bringing together a friendly, diverse, informal collection of people who are also looking to revamp their social life.

I've listed lots of activities that we could be about, at this point in time it's just about seeing who is interested and what you would like to do, so any suggestions for other events and interests are happily received.

Everyone is welcome, no matter if you are new to the island or are already established here. I would like the group to focus on friendships rather than dating, so couples and friends are equally invited.

The age range I will only restrict to ' young at heart' so interpret that as you will

I look forward to hearing from future hobnobbers and exploring this lovely island in good company!

Coffee Morning at Quay Arts

Quay Arts

Last chance for a Coffee Morning inside Quay Arts for a while.

Early evening drink and Easy Going Quiz

Online event

Details A gentle easy going Quiz to go with your early evening drink. Three rounds. General knowledge - ranging from "What was Noddy's car number plate?" to "Who was Lord Greystoke's son?" A Dingbats round and a 'Food and Drinks' type round, "All because the Lady Loved ....... what?" Definitely not for the ardent quizzer but something we could all do. Have a pen and paper at the ready for your answers and then Mark your own answers. Should last about 40 minutes. With different questions each week the quick quiz will hopefully run on Tuesdays at 7 pm for the duration of the lockdown. Hope to see you there (on Zoom). Nb: If you are asked for a Password on Zoom please use: Newchurch

We have booked a second, separate table, so that more of us can enjoy a delicious meal of warm spices! We are not able to mingle, following government guidelines. so each table of 6 will have its own Meetup host. The table for this event is booked under 'Karen'. See you there!
