What we're about

This group is for over 50s singles to meet up, socialise and widen their social circle, in a fun, friendly and safe environment.

We are looking for new members to join us, attend and host all kinds of events and holidays.

Travel is my passion and although based in London, our events are not limited geographically.

Holidays, travel and adventure are also planned in the UK and abroad

If you love travel or hope to travel in the future, enjoy socialising, making new friends, outdoor activities, cultural events, restaurants and gatherings or anything and everything that is better shared, then 'Friendly Frolickers' is the Meetup group for you.

Whether you want to just socialise, have short breaks away or travel further afield, you can save money by sharing and make new friends.

Friendly Frolickers was initially set up as a WhatsApp group in July 2019 when a group of just 7 people were disillusioned with online dating. The purpose of Friendly Frolickers is for over 50s singles to find new friends in a safe relaxed environment and maybe find a new partner if that's what you are looking for.

There is a £12 annual fee payable on 1st April. This will help to cover the Meetup subscriptions and enable this group to flourish. This fee is non refundable.

Members must be over 50, single and live in the UK. They must also post a photo of themselves on their profile in order to be recognised at the events.

Please only RSVP for events if you are able to attend and remove your name to ‘not going’ as soon as possible if you are unable to attend. This will allow others on the waitlist to take your place.

If unable to attend an event at last minute, please contact the Host or Organiser as 3 no-shows will result in removal of your profile from the group.

The Organiser and Event Hosts are not tour/travel professionals and as such, are not responsible for your safety, well-being or successful travel/social enjoyment. Please read DISCLAIMER at the foot of this page and decide whether you agree to the conditions of membership of this group. Only join us if you do.



Important: By joining you agree to treat other members with respect and tolerance and to refrain from all forms of negative behaviours - intimidation, bullying, stalking, verbal, physical or written abuse and foul language. There is a zero tolerance for these behaviours. Please note that if you do not abide by the rules your profile will be removed and you may be banned from rejoining.

Members must become active within the first 3 months and continue participation at least quarterly. Non-participation in group activities over a 3 month period constitutes the member becoming inactive and their profile may be removed.
