What we're about

This group is aimed at anyone roughly in the 20 to 40 age range around the Winchester area, we organise a bunch of difference social events each month that you are welcome to attend. Come along, make new friends, have fun, do stuff!

Importantly, the membership fee is one beer for Lyndon upon request ;)


We have regular Meetups throughout the year like drinks nights and a monthly pub quiz - both of which are a great way for new members to meet and mingle. We also keep a regular calendar of seasonal events including:

* SUMMER: Hat Fair Saturday / A big group picnic/lawn games day
* AUTUMN: Halloween / Bonfire Night events
* WINTER: Secret Santa Sunday Lunch / German Market Meetups

Alongside that, we have our big two payday New Members Nights:

* At the end of Jan/start of Feb - when everyone's finally got cash again post-Christmas
* And in September - when the city seems to see the largest no. of newcomers

Dotted around all of that you'll also find bespoke one-offs pop up now and then.

Favourites in the past have included:

* Geocaching walks
* Restaurant dinners
* Board game nights
* Lazy day pub gatherings
* Cinema outings

Plus some more adventurous outings further afield, like:
* Country walks
* Bank holiday city trips
* Roller discos
* Water park bookings
* Camping weekenders


Since Meetup changed the permissions, only group admins can post Meetups. Booo!

However, our organisers are a friendly enough bunch. Some of them even communicate using words instead of grunting and pointing! So please do contact one of them if you have either a vague idea of something you'd like to do, or a more concrete plan for a Meetup - whether it's from the list above, or something new altogether. Alternatively, if you'd like to gauge interest, try the discussions board. (It's all very civil and mature. Honest).


If you'd like to get involved in posting and hosting on a regular basis, let us know on the site or at a Meetup. We're particularly on the lookout for at least a couple of female organisers, so if you'd like to help keep the group ticking over with ideas and social plans, please drop Lyndon a message.

Sunday stroll with our doggies

Needs a location

Fishlake Meadows is an incredible 59 acre wetland nature reserve in the southern Test Valley, just outside Romsey. Known for its beautiful and characteristic wildlife, it is home to more than 170 species of bird, including osprey, bittern, cuckoo and starling.

To access the small car park at the eastern end of Fishlake Meadows Road in Oxlease Meadows, take the first left, numbers 3-11 odds, and through the height barrier to the car park.

Please keep dogs under effective control and only walk on the designated rights of way. For dogs who like a swim please only allow them to enter the water at the stepped entry points.

I have attached a link for details of the circular walk. Please wear sensible clothes and footwear.


See you there 🐶

Nandos and Arcade Games

Needs a location

Join us for a cheeky chicken dinner in Nandos followed by pool, arcade games, and possible bowling afterwards.

There is ample parking at the Swan Centre. If you are travelling in by train the railway station is opposite.

This event will be limited to 10 people. If you join and are unable to make it please remove yourself from the list.

Mushroom Bothering

Needs a location

Join me on a walk in the woods to find some cool mushrooms and I'll tell you about them.

Crab Wood is just outside Winchester.

Meet in the Crab Wood car park at 11.00am. Spend a few hours traipsing through the forest and maybe go to the farm cafe for a coffee and cake after.

Weather depending. If it's raining I'll reschedule.

Games Night

Needs a location

Bring along any card, dice and board games you would like to play and let’s have some fun. Competitiveness optional!

*We’re changing the location of this one to an indoor venue. We’ll see how it pans out as to whether we try somewhere different next time.
