North East Friendship Groups

Joining a membership group has so many benefits to us which is why they are so successful.  Not only do they help us connect with other people with shared interests, build friendships they also can help create a sense of team spirit and pride.

We recommend two groups on the MeetUp platform – Coffee and Cake Companions, and the North East Circle.
These groups are designed to bring together people with shared interests socially as a means of building genuine friendships with other people in the North East.
Whilst many membership or social groups refer to a group of people or a place where they may meet and often this revolves around an interest, occupation or activity, for example running, films, running, education, fitness, art and so on.
These two groups bring together people on a social level – building friendships which can help improve confidence and self esteem,.

Joining groups, clubs and societies is very popular and most of us like the sense of belonging . Isn’t it nice to belong to something?

If you live in the North East and interested in meeting other people for coffee and conversation a couple of times a month in cafes and garden centres North of the Tyne this meetup group COFFEE AND CAKE COMPANIONS may be of interest to you.
