What we're about

Want to meet genuine people who could become good friends in a fun environment or dip in and out as you please, then this is the group for you.

We offer a wide range of activities and are always interested in new ideas. Please upload a clear photo so we can recognise you at events and be accurate in your profile responses. Host telephone numbers are always available if you're feeling shy.

It would be most helpful if you are unable to attend if you could please update your RSVP to give someone else the opportunity to attend.

We ask for a one off contribution towards the running of the group of £3 when you join to pay for Meetup fees. (Please transfer to 30-90-91 65453460 or paypal newbeginnings118@yahoo.com friends and family option only & send a message to advise paid) Alternatively cash at an event is fine.

Members who have not attended an event for 6 months will be removed from the group and no refund made. However if your circumstances change please rejoin, no need to pay again.

We wish to be an inclusive group and warmly welcome all feedback to improve the running of the group. The aim of this group is to laugh, have fun and make lasting friendships. We ask that you remember this at all times.

Over 18s only. Members are responsible for their own safety at all events.
