Research suggests there are millions of people of all ages and backgrounds in the UK who often feel lonely. Sunday in particular can be a lonely day with fewer opportunities to meet people. Good Company brings people together on the loneliest day of the week.
Many of us feel that we would like more company and conversation without the need to have a strong interest in any particular activity. Our experience is that drawing strength from like-minded people can make all the difference. That's why we created Good Company.
What to expect
We meet every Sunday at 4pm for an hour or so. We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds.
At each meeting we get together in tables of 4 to 6 people to chat about a variety of topics chosen by each group. This might be what's on in the local area, what's been in the news or listening to people's stories.
After this there's a chance to chat to people in other groups over tea, coffee and biscuits.
About once a month we have a guest speaker chosen by the group.
The sessions are free to attend (we do ask for a donation to cover refreshments).
Everybody is welcome so feel free to bring a friend and you can drop in whenever you want.

"A BIG THANK YOU for creating this gathering group for people of all ages, who like to meet other people on a Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed meeting those on my table and look forward to seeing them again another time; also maybe to meet those on the other tables. The discussions you set for us on each table were, I thought, stimulating. I'm really glad I saw your ad on streetbank and even gladder to have responded and then attended. : - )" Patricia
"I enjoyed very much the 'good company' meeting. It was very stimulating, and I enjoyed the way you organised it, by creating topics to focus on." Marilyn
