What we're about

Welcome to our group for 50 and 60 somethings, or anyone who can pass as such!

We aim to be a social hub for people who want to socialise, do new things, and do familiar things with people who are not-yet-friends.

Send us a message if there is something you would like to do, and we will do our best to organise it for you.

We hope to network with other interest groups so that Almost Old subgroups can connect and attend other things together such as U3A talks, classes of various types such as dancercise, cinema visits, cycle rides and walks.

We hope to do regular, meetups for lunch; regular, maybe monthly meetups for dinner; and also totally random ‘have-a-go’ days to indulge give- it-a -try urges or bucket list items. We are also open to hosting special interest subgroups, if anyone has expertise in a particular area and they would like to share it. Many of us will have things we would like to try but would like some company to do so – I have in mind cycling from Eastbourne to the Pencarrow Lighthouse, horseback riding on a beach, (which I believe is possible in Kapiti) or perhaps a morning of trying water color painting or drawing from family photos, in a studio in Abel Smith St. 

If you would like to meet people and share your interests, get in touch by email or just roll up to a regular meeting. You will be most welcome!
