What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in improving their life through social activities in and around the Wiltshire area.

The aim is to have a range of events and days out mainly around the Wiltshire towns and villages including walks, meals, live music, cinema or just meeting for coffee. It doesn't matter if you are single or a couple there will be events to suit all. We all like to meet new people with shared interests and the potential for new friendships to be formed, this is why I started this group.

"There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met." William Butler Yeats

Now for the boring bit:

A joining fee of £10 is needed before membership is approved.

This is a one off payment, payable by bank transfer, the account details will be forwarded to you when you ask to join. It will only be used to pay meetup admin costs which are about £150 per year. If there is a large uptake of membership and we feel that there is a surplus of fees building up then we will look at subsidising an event for current members. The reason for a once only payment and not an annual fee is that the administrative burden of collecting fees annually would be too much. If this group closes you will be refunded surplus fees after all costs have been met on a pro-rata basis.

I will run a very simple Income and Expenditure account and all payments will be auditable. Accounts will be made available to anyone on request.

I'm sure that you will feel that this is a small cost compared to the benefits you'll receive from being a member of this group.

Upcoming events (5+)

Test walk - New walk Ridgeway near Silbury Hill then The bell coffee/lunch

The walk is about 6 miles. Should be dog friendly but this is a test walk so have not done this route before.

New Walk - Compton Bassett

The White Horse Inn

Meet in the car park at the rear of the pub. This walk has a small hill to start but the rest of the walk is flat with magnificent views over the countryside. When testing the walk we saw a lot of bird life, a hare, 6 deer, a hot air balloon oh and it needs a further mention about the views, stunning. It is about 6 miles long and you do not have to have a dog but the walk is dog friendly if you want to bring one along. In the pub afterward I had to book a table in the restaurant because they do not book tables in the bar area. If we are early enough to get the table in the bar area we can bring in dogs but if we cannot and have to go in the main restaurant then dogs will have to stay in the car.

Games evening
