Help Us Spread The Word: New Friendship Group for Adults in Kirklees

23rd June Explore Castle Hill 5.5 mile walk fro m The Golden Cock, Farnley Tyas

Join us for a Summer of Fun with Friendlees

TSL Kirklees, in partnership with Happy U, has launched a new pilot project, with seed funding from Kirklees Council.  The idea behind Friendlees is that any of us, whatever age, due to circumstances beyond our control and life changes such as a bereavement, divorce or moving house, can find ourselves lonely or isolated and in need of some new friends to socialise with.

Friendlees host and co-ordinator, Kelly Williams says:

We all know what it feels like to want to go to that new show, film or gig, but not have anyone to go with.  Friendlees will help you make connections and find shared interest without it being scary.  We want everyone to feel welcome, relaxed and pleased that they came along – and you never know, you might find a few new friends along the way.

The project is being launched with a series of 6 free events and activities all over Kirklees, including walks, trips, music, dancing, and sing-along cinema.  In addition, people can join the Friendlees group on Facebook, and host a coffee catch-up or pub meet-up in their local area and invite other members to join them, or they can suggest events that they’d like to go to and see if other members would like to go along.

The Summer of Fun events, run between June and September, starting with a 5.5 mile Castle Hill walk on 23rd June, with coffee stop at the top whilst admiring the view, and optional pint at The Golden Cock in Farnley Tyas.

Find out more on the Facebook group or Friendlees website.
