A chance to meet new friends

TWO Portishead grandmothers have launched a new social circle in the town.

Tess Hedges and her friend Geraldine O’Hare are calling for anyone over 50 who would like to find some new friends to give them a call.

Tess said: “So many people find their lives have been dominated by their children, then suddenly they fly the nest leaving a void to fill. We have found a new lease of life socialising and finding new hobbies and want to share it.”

The ladies want to stress this is not a dating circle, it’s not for people who are looking for love and it is not just for single people. It is simply a group for those who are young at heart and want to get together with other people interested in expanding their social life. Geraldine added: “We are hoping to have nights out, organise day trips, short breaks and holidays or sometimes, just have a cuppa and a chat.”

Anyone interested in joining the group can contact Tess on 07767 073091 or Geraldine on 07756 450288.
