Social club for 50s and over started

2015-11-10 06:00

A NEW social group for men and women aged 50 and over, SimplySocial, has been started by Deanne Lailvaux, who saw a need for people in this age bracket to reconnect with others.

“As we mature it becomes difficult to meet people outside our immediate circle of family and friends.

“It is understandable that many mature adults, who have lost a spouse or moved to another area, find that life is lonely. When these lifestyle changes take effect, people need to start afresh and establish a new life.”

This is where SimplySocial comes in says Lailvaux. SimplySocial organises upmarket events that give people the opportunity of meeting new people, making new friends and enjoying life by getting out and having fun.

This year SimplySocial members have gone the theatre, taken part in quiz night, done some cooking, gone to restaurants, attended a cooking class and enjoyed dance evenings. For more information contact
