What we're about

The idea of this group is for those many people who live by themselves who during this time of isolation are going to be in their flats/homes pretty much alone, not able to physically see family and friends, etc.

There were be online meetings scheduled 2-3 times a week where you can simply join, come and have a chat with people in similar-situation. Also applicable to those sharing houses who are trying to do social distancing from each other.

Calls can be joined via video/audio-only/phone, etc and are going to be based using the Zoom Conferencing App (runs on all computer platforms and mobile phones).

Please note - as of 1st January 2021 - I am now operating a process of 2-no shows means possible removal from the group. I had hoped to avoid this but unfortunately, too many people are doing this currently and it needs to stop.

Let's get through this together.

Upcoming events (4+)

Zoom - Skribbl.io/Pictionary (8pm - 9.30pm)

Online event

Think Pictionary but we will use the Skribbl.io website which does it all for us. A link will be provided at the start of the Zoom call. Please come on time as otherwise it makes the setup harder than necessary.

Event now scheduled for bi-weekly until end of 2021. This event is run on opposite week to the online quiz. Sometimes the event will be unhosted in which case - the Zoom call will be available and you'll need to create your own Skribbl room.

(NOT A MEET) Seeking organisers due to moving

Online event

Dear members,

This meet-up is 'not a meet-up' itself but so that people are aware of changes to the group.

I have decided to move further south in the UK having recently sold my house. With this in mind, I do not want this group and all we've achieved to be wasted away, so I am keen to find organisers in and around the Thames Valley area to be able to keep it moving forwards as this is where the majority of our members are.

To be clear, I am not intending to shut the group down at this stage. It is very much my intention to keep the online meets that we've had during Covid-19 in place for the foreseeable future, and I don't yet know exactly where I am going to end up.

If you are interested to take part and become an organiser to take this forward (along with the team we already have), please send me a message and I can go through how to do it all within the system. Meet-ups don't need to remain online only, and there are lots of members who are keen to do things in person too.

It has been an honour to bring people together through this difficult time and I'm really glad it worked out so well, and for the feedback I've had from so many. Let us keep it going.

When I know a more specific date for my moving, I will try to set up an event in person and also online as a kind of 'farewell' event. Please keep an eye out for this. It will be great to see as many as we can.

With best wishes,

David
