My husband died last year and after 38 years of marriage I had to find a social life and friends. As a pensioner one has to make the effort, people are not going to come knocking at your door!
The library had a book showing various social groups and so I went along to our local Solo club not knowing anyone. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I now have a social life and new friends and we do something different every Thursday evening.
The National Federation of Solo Clubs is nationwide and we badly need new members. Plucking up the courage to go along was a good move for me.
