This group has been going since 28th March 2015 when the founding organiser, Judith Millar, set it up. What a success it has been. I myself joined in Sept 2015 and just loved it. I have met and made some amazing friends on the way. As have lots of others that have joined and this is what it was all about. I stepped up & took over as group organiser late 2017, when Judith clearly needed to take a step back.
I have seen quite shy men and ladies just blossom once they have made that first step to come along now for some has changed their life for the better (I was one of them). So if this is you then please just make that first step and come and join us, myself and some of the regulars will soon make you feel welcome. For anyone new to Christchurch or just those who have got to a point in life when you need to get out again & meet like minded people in view of making friends in fun, friendly, non-pressured & safe settings, then this group may just what you're looking for. It's also a great way of getting to go to different bars etc, that otherwise you'd never would. Where as the group comprises mainly single people, couples are more than welcome to join.
Our group has "after work drinks social catch up" at different bars around the city most Fridays of the year. We also have the occasional dinner out, go dancing to a live band at bars like The Miller, Becks or Trevinos, attend concerts & festivals etc. We have in the past done weekends away in Hamner & Kaikoura. I & my event organisers are open to any suggestions what people would like to do, so put your thinking caps on and let one of us know.
So come on do something positive, meet new friends, have a laugh, kick your legs up and enjoy what's out there. Hope to see you soon.
Note that any ladies reluctant to go out to a bar in the city of an evening due to being uncomfortable about walking back to their car afterwards in the dark, please speak to the event host & they will happily arrange for one of the gentlemen to escort you.
