What we're about

https://img1.meetupstatic.com/img/smileys/smile.gif

This group is for anyone, and everyone, of any age, living in and around the Meon Valley area, who wants an opportunity to make new friends and to socialise in the beautiful setting of the Meon Valley! Our meetups will be social affairs - a great chance to chat, relax and meet new people. There are no restrictions on who can join. Our events will usually be fairly small groups (normally 8 - 15, depending on the event) to make it easier to chat and get to know one another!

Come to our events alone, or bring a friend or partner, everyone will be made welcome. Remember that we are all members for the same reason - to make new friends!

We're still quite a small group, but we aim to host a variety of different events - dinner, drinks, coffee, walks, quiz nights, live music...hopefully there will be something for everyone. If there is something in particular that you would like to do, or a venue that you would love to visit, please feel free to suggest it to Angela. You can also be added as an event organiser yourself if you'd like to get more involved and host events!

We look forward to meeting you at one of our next events
