Open to anyone 35+ who would like to widen their social circle.

Founded - March 2009.

No set agenda, just an opportunity to make new friends at various events such as walking, cycling, restaurant/pub meals, live bands, cinema outings, weekends away, holidays abroad, pub/club nights and much more. A relaxed meet up for friendly people who are either new to Newcastle or locals who would like to meet people from all walks of life. Life is more fun together.
