Hello and thanks for passing by and checking out our new meet-up group. Let us introduce ourselves, we are Mark and Lorraine, founders of RVSP, the Ribble Valley Social Pursuits Meet Up Group. We are both keen walkers but also enjoy running, cycling, climbing, skiing and playing football, tennis, badminton and the odd swim. We also enjoy a bit of fun with good food, the odd drink, a bit of culture and most importantly, meeting new people like you.

We are based in the Ribble Valley and surrounding areas so will include Blackpool, Preston, Blackburn, Garstang, Bolton, Darwen, Burnley, Lancaster, all the way through to Skipton.

We aim to be a social group hosting a variety of activities both outdoors and indoors for people in their 30’s and 40’s, in and around the Ribble Valley, Trough of Bowland and West Pennine Moors area. We will also venture out further afield to the Lakes, Dales, Snowdonia and Peak District from time to time.

As well as doing a variety of sporting activities, we also aim to relax and do a wide range of social events from nights out to sightseeing trips. We also want your input so if you have any suggestions then we’ll be really happy to hear from you.

 As we have to pay for using the meet-up facility, we will charge a small rate of a pound per person to anyone who wishes to join any of our events, with many of our socials free to attend.

For more information on what we have in store, just have a look at our upcoming events diary….

ps.  We now have special membership discounts with some of our sponsors.  If you want more information then contact organiser Lorraine for more details.  Thanks.
