What our members say

So many things in life are better done with a group of friends and to find people that share your particular interests is very difficult. Being a member of Friends however, allows you to find like minded people to share these interests and make friendships at the same time, then life becomes so much better and fulfilled.

Having lost my wife after being happily married for 42 years I have to admit that even with the support of family and friends I took the loss very badly. Fortunately, an acquaintance, now a good friend, introduced me to Friends in Solihull. As well as making new friends I now have a full and varied social life. For me the group has helped me rebuild my life.

I am so pleased to have found the group early in 2015. I quickly discovered it was going to become a very important part of my daily life.The thought of me hosting an event was a non starter at that time. That is until I started joining in with things that I had previously never attempted and decided I wanted to give something back to the group for others to enjoy. I can now play ten pin bowling, crazy golf and have mastered the art of playing cribbage. There are always plenty of opportunities to eat a variety of meals out as well!!

About Us

Friends Social Group of Solihull is for people, from all walks of life, generally aged forty-five plus, who want to enjoy a rich and busy social life, full of activities and events in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

All events are hosted and organised by members for the enjoyment of fellow members, and  cover any type of activity, the range of which is limited only by the imagination and ambition of our members.
Although not a “singles only” club, many of our members join following difficult life events and are able to rekindle their appetite for a healthy social life, and rebuild confidence, supported and encouraged by the group to eventually become event organisers themselves, and contribute to our continuing success.

Many events are run in support of charitable institutions and over the years many thousands of pounds have been raised.
The group’s day to day activity is guided by a constitution and has an active committee of members working hard to ensure we continue to grow and enable the membership to thrive.

HISTORY

Formed in 1988, when a small group from the Solihull area who regularly met in each others homes, decided to organise their activities by producing a programme of events.

Over thirty years later this small group has evolved into a “club” with membership fast approaching two hundred.

During this time many hundreds of our members have passed through and been re-energised, and confidence restored moved on along life’s journey.
