What we're about

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.

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 discover new adventures and to make new friends!

We aim to host a variety of different events - theatre, dinner, drinks, coffee, walks, quiz nights, live music... hopefully there will be something for everyone.

You can also be added as an event organiser yourself if you'd like to get more involved and host events!
