What we’re about

New to the area, or just looking to expand your circle of friends? This group could be a great place to start. Life events can make it difficult to have a social life and when you do eventually have the time to have one it can be hard to make an effort to do anything. You want to go out but do not know where to go, you feel awkward going to places by yourself - joining Solent Friends will help. (We are not a dating site!). You will have the opportunity to attend regular meet ups at the local places near you. Coffee mornings, pubs, cinemas, live music events, days out, restaurants, and lunches. You will also be able to explore the Solent and surrounding areas through organised walks. The organisers are keen to set up new things so if there is something you fancy doing then let one of them know and opportunities will be explored. Our events are hosted by a friendly organiser or event host, who will be more than happy for you to contact them prior to the event  via the site. We are a non-profit making group but do have to cover our site fees and costs. The membership is £12  pro-rated Jan-Dec and is due by 2nd January. ( or when you join. Please ask for details of how to pay). Throughout the year we have random gifts at some events and at the year end we make a  donation  to local charities.  If you see an event you fancy and are free that day add your rsvp. Please do remember that if your circumstances change to amend your rsvp in good time to allow others on the wait list to fill the space, and please put a message on the site for the host.
