Be Social are holding their first group meeting next Saturday, May 12 in Portlaoise.

The club is for people aged 45 to 68, and offers an opportunity to make new friends and enjoy social events such as dinner clubs, coffee afternoons and nights out. Is the brainchild of Yvonne Dwyer, who already has a successful club running in Portlaoise for people aged 25 to 45.

“After setting up the first group, I found that a lot of people in the age bracket 46-68 were looking to join a social group. So I am helping them start up their own group,” she explained.

As with her first club, started last year and now running successfully, Yvonne emphasises that the club is open to both couples and singles, and is not a dating agency, but if romances blossom, well and good.

“All nationalities are welcome too. Our aim is to get a group going of like mind people who enjoy meeting new people and wish to increase their social circle,” she said.

The first group meeting is at Rafters coffee shop next to Tesco’s at 3pm, on Saturday, May 12. For more information call 089 4717389
