Hello, folks and welcome to my blog which I have created to support the Meridian Social Group as well as entertaining myself!
I am James, a 61 year old widower, who has more time on his hands than ever before as my youngest daughter has now left home. I decided some time ago that I would have to become more sociable in order to cope with the loneliness that this change would bring and so I have instigated the formation of this new group. I have previously hosted events in association with a dating website in an amateur capacity but this group is strictly my own personal venture. I do not have any association with any businesses and my support is entirely voluntary and unpaid.
My aims are quite simple, to meet people, to make friends, to provide each other with company, to encourage trying out of new pursuits, exploring new & old places, sampling different cuisines, and to encourage people to come out and enjoy life whatever their background and circumstances.
The contact details for the Meridian Social Group are:-
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Text messages only to 07429-650050 – please note that no voice mail or phone connection is possible on this number.
I am not willing to impose any restrictions upon who can join this group although I expect that most of the activities will be more attractive to people over fifty such as:-
Visiting historic towns & villages
Bridgnorth, Evesham, Worcester, Ludlow, Kidderminster & Wolverhampton etc.
Evening meals and lunch time dining – this could be part of a visit or a stand alone event on a quiet evening = Thai, French, Greek & Italian cuisine etc.
Walks and exploration of notable sites
Sandwell Valley, the Clent Hills, the Long Mynd, Dudley/Netherton Tunnels etc.
Theatre visits, Comedy shows, Amateur productions
The Public, West Bromwich, regional theatres etc.
plus any other activities that you are willing to try ! What are your ideas? Don’t be shy !
