Anyone and everyone is welcome! No matter what age, experience or background, there’s always a warm welcome, and if you don’t feel like talking but could do with the company, that’s still OK.

You can come on your own or bring someone along – maybe you’ll make a friend or two there! Some venues are dog friendly if you have a furry companion to bring, just call ahead to check first.

If you’re new to the area and would like to meet your neighbours, it’s a great place to start.

If you’re feeling fed up or lonely – give it a go and then perhaps you won’t be!

Those who do go aren’t labelled by the word lonely, they are individuals who may not happen to have family or friends around them at present, but want to share their day and their companionship with others.
