Holidays we love, we organise some every year, mostly in the uk by coach, but others as short weekends and camping. if people will help we can organise holidays abroad as well...
T E S T I M O N I A L S
Just after the millennium I was a single working mother. I was at the age where I had left nights out at clubs and discos well behind, which meant at the time there wasn’t much out there for older singles. However I was told about a social club called Just Friends who met on the last Sunday every month at the Hotel Nelson ( it was then). I thought at the time it was only me who felt so uncomfortable about going into an unknown environment to meet new people after being part of a couple for so many years. I have subsequently found out that most people, both male and female feel the same way at first. After sitting in the car park for 15 minutes the first night I made myself go in and gave myself a goal of having to spend 30 minutes there before I could go home. I turned up again the second month and on this occasion I met another lady called Chrissy who was in the same position as me and we are still best friends to this day.
From that first night I became a regular at Just Friends events and my friendship circle grew. I became the envy of my children who said I had a better social life than they did. In time along with Chrissy I spent 3 years on the Committee as a way of saying thank you for all that we had gained from Just Friends.
Now nearly 20 years on and married we have a terrific circle of friends and spend many happy hours with our Just Friends.
When my husband died at the age of 51 leaving me a widow at 50 I was at a bit of a loss. Although I had a lot of family and friends they were all couples. Then I was introduced to Just Friends. I have now been a member for approx 20 years and although I am now part of a couple again the good thing is that we all know what it is to be left alone albeit through death, divorce or whatever.
The club has evolved over the years to include couples as well as "singles" but you would go a long way to find a friendlier group of people. I wouldn't be without my 'Friends'
My First Experience with Just Friends Social Club.
Returning to Norfolk after living many years in the West Midlands, I needed to make friends and enjoy a social life. Having joined several groups, for example, a local Drama group, a Choir and Health Walking group, I started to meet people.
During my time with the Health Walking Group, I met a single lady who was a member of Just Friends Social Club. At this time, Just Friends Social Club was only open to single, divorced, widows and widowers. As I was married, I could only attend Just Friends Social functions as her guest.
My friend and I spent many happy, fun times attending many functions Just Friends Social Club had on their programme. I found the members of Just Friends Social Club were so friendly and easy to talk to that I made many friends very quickly. Eventually the social club decided to allow married people into the club (married people can also feel lonely and in need of friendship as single people!) I could then attend Just Friends Social functions on my own.
Enjoying the different functions, friendship and comradeship I experienced as a now member of Just Friends Social Club I wanted to give something back to the club. When the position of secretary became available, I put myself forward for the job and managed to be accepted, this position I still hold at the present time.
