A social group to help people meet and make new friends in the Fens is going from strength to strength.
Find New Friends In The Fens was launched last year by Walsoken man Barry Lansfield and held a coffee morning at The Chase pub in Wisbech on Saturday to mark its first year. Barry said: “We have 110 members now and get between 60 and 70 attending our regular social activities.” Members come from Wisbech and the Fens and even further afield – including King’s Lynn and Marham – and Barry added: “You don’t have to come from the Fens to be a member – just have links to it. “We hold weekly coffee mornings in members’ homes and have social activities like bowling and meals and also help each other with things like repairing fences and moving house. “The idea came from someone who asked on a Wisbech discussion group if there was somewhere to meet new friends. It all started from there.” The group, which holds its first birthday party at Wisbech Town FC on March 19, has its own Facebook group. You can also contact Barry on 07544 504103 for more details.
