What we're about

I set up this group in Autumn 2015 as I wanted to make some new friends in my local area. We organise weekly lunches around Cornwall, from the local pub to nice restaurants, we like a bit of variety. Our default venue is the Rashleigh arms in Charlestown but we go to many different places. Location wise, our most popular spots are in the St Austell, Truro and Newquay areas but we will be visiting other areas this year such as Padstow and St Ives.

Conversation varies depending on who attends on any particular week, from business to men or politics. It's just nice to have a good chat with a group of nice ladies. If you are a local lady who enjoys eating out and good conversation come and join us we would love to meet you!
