We created a club for single people in their 40s and 50s in 2002. This club is an amazing success and has brought happiness and friendship to many hundreds of people. We are now repeating this success for a new age group. We have discovered over the years there are countless people in their 40s, 50s and 60s who are on their own due to divorce and bereavement. We know how lonely life can be, how depressing it is when everyone else seems to be having a great time. We have also discovered there are many couples who would love the opportunity to join a social club with people of a similar age. With the original club we were unable to accommodate single people in their 60s or couples. We were asked many times to extend the age range and so decided to create a new club specifically for all 60 to 69 year olds.
What we endeavour to do is give you the opportunity to re-start your life with a friendly, welcoming group of people who just want to have fun.
THE WAY FORWARD:
New friends of both sexes, a pleasant social life and a "reason for being" are what we offer. Our club generates a warm and friendly atmosphere ideal for meeting people, and this is a perfect way to re-start your social life.
PLANNING and BOOKING:
You may receive your monthly events programme by email or post, whichever suits you. When you receive your programme, you will also receive a booking slip. Simply indicate the events you wish to attend and email or post it back. Once received, you will be booked in for the month. It really is as simple as that! If you are attending an event which needs to be paid for you can either send a cheque or transfer the money on-line.
You will receive a newsletter every month which keeps everyone fully informed as to what's going on. The newsletter accompanies your events programme and also contains information about things which need to be booked a long time in advance; such as weekends away for example.
TAKING CARE OF NEW MEMBERS:
We do appreciate how nerve racking the thought of joining us can be. It is possibly the first time you have ever done anything like this. You may have been without a social life for a very long time. We do understand. To that end, if you choose, the organiser will visit you and explain everything in detail, show you a couple of month's programmes and answer any questions you may have so that you can decide if you feel it is for you before you pay any money by way of subscriptions. We have small get-togethers from time to time for new members which act as wonderful ice-breakers. You will meet other people feeling equally apprehensive and, together, gain support and confidence.
ON-LINE MESSAGE BOARD:
As you may have noticed, we have a forum on our website where members can leave messages for each other any time they wish. All the programmes, newsletters, updated information and club business is posted there. A click of the mouse brings the whole club into your office or home. We have on-line quizzes, discussion topics, you name it, and it's there! If you are stuck at home feeling at a loose end, what better way to stay in touch with all the other members and club activities? This forum is exclusive to club members and cannot be viewed or accessed by non-members.
