Do you live alone?

Would you like some friends with whom you can enjoy evenings out, weekends away or even a holiday - simply head over to and sign up with Waveney 55+ Socials – Let’s Go Out.

The meetup group, started by Michael Caventer in August, has so far held 16 meetups. These have included evenings enjoying a meal and taking part in a pub quiz, a day boat trip on the broads, trips to the theatre, ten pin bowling, pub evenings with live music and a walk around Carlton Marshes.

Future listed meetups include a Christmas meal and disco, a trivial pursuit evening, pub quizzes, theatre outings and a trip to Yarmouth greyhound stadium.

A group spokesman said: “We aim to cater for all our members with plans for weekends away, a 2019 holiday abroad, trips out to local and not so local attractions, more theatre trips, quizzes, meals out, walks and anything else that may be suggested by our members. Most of us live in the Waveney area but one lady actually travels to meetups from Bury St Edmunds.”

Notification of and RSVP’s for meetups does require Internet based communication but events organiser, Lorraine George can help you to sign up by calling 07973 671275.
