What we're about

Every friend or partner started with the first hello!

We aim to provide a safe environment for you to make new friends and widen your social circle. We know how daunting it is for ladies to come alone to events so we can even put ladies coming alone in touch with each other beforehand. We'd like to offer this to you too guys but we know how strange you would think it was if we said we could network you with other men beforehand lol! We can only suggest that you arrive at the start of the event when we can properly introduce you into a mixed group of new arrivals and ease you in gently.

We have members from mainly 30 but we don't mind younger or older. We have big numbers at our events when we are able to hold them so there will still be plenty of people within your age range.

If you wish to book for any of the events please text Julie Davies on 07809 709099 with full name and email stating the date of the event. Please note that RSVP only does not book you.

Obviously we cannot hold any actual live events until social distancing comes to an end. Meanwhile, if anyone reading this would like to organise a Zoom meeting free of charge online for this group please let me know. I can make you an organise on both of my Meet Up groups and you could help many of our single members through this lock down if they are living alone.
