What we're about

Hi I'm Melanie and welcome to Peterborough Friends. Firstly, we are not a singles, dating website, we are a social group.  We welcome friends from anywhere of any age, whether you are single, in a relationship or married.  

We eat out, drink, laugh, dance, party, go to the theatre and even go on holidays. The group has events to suit anyone of any age. If you are fed up of staying in, wasting your time on dating websites and social media or just lonely then please give the group a try.  Please scroll through our calendar and see the many varied events planned for this year. If you are interested in an event then please sign up to it so that myself and the other members can look out for you. 

Can I please ask that you bring cash when attending meals out as it makes it easier to pay the bill and means that the waitress does not have several small card payments for one booking. All meals will require a £5 deposit. This is to secure your place. If you cannot attend for a genuine reason I will transfer the deposit to another event, however if you cancel on the day of the event this will not be refunded. In the event of a cancellation the deposits will be refunded. If I have asked for your deposit and you have not sent it I will move your name on to the waiting list until it has been received. If you RSVP for a theatre trip please send the full payment to me straight away as I have to book tickets for these events promptly so that we can all sit together.

Lifts and travel can be shared so please don't be afraid to ask. Just post a comment on the event to see if anyone can help. 

Every Tuesday evening we meet at The Brewery Tap. This is ideal for new members as we usually get 20 plus attending every week. If you are nervous please give me a call on 07712 107646 and I will come and meet you outside. If you want to bring a friend to an event then please add a "plus one" to your RSVP.  After two events I would ask your "plus one" to join the group.


You will need an up to date photo of yourself to join this group. This is so I can recognise you at events. You will be removed from the group if you refuse to do this. It is helpful if you add a surname as we are a large group and this will make it easier for me.

You are welcome to try out the group for free but after two events the cost is £20 for the year, via bank transfer to M J James, Halifax 11-07-34 00228953 ref "sub" or you can pay cash at any event where I have a receipt book. This cost covers the website charges, some of my expenses and allows me to run the group on a full time basis. This amount is non-refundable. If you do not attend your first event for six months your membership will be cancelled unless the subscription payment is received.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact me on 07712107646 or send me a message on Meet Up. Please do not post complaints on the event comments as this can be off-putting to new members.  

If you have a complaint about anyone in the group please contact me privately.  Please do not post comments on events regarding any complaints or these will be removed immediately.
Anyone who cannot behave in an appropriate manner at events will be removed immediately.

I hope you enjoy your time with Peterborough Friends.
