A Fantastic Day of Connections and Craic: Singles Over 50 Picnic Recap

I wanted to take a moment to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the amazing individuals who joined me for an unforgettable few hours at Southsea last Saturday, August 12th.


Your presence and enthusiasm truly made the event a resounding success, and I am excited to share the highlights of the day with those who couldn't make it and those who might be considering joining us in the future.


Despite a few hesitant souls who were concerned about the slightly blustery weather, I had everything well in hand. A Plan B was ready to roll, ensuring that everyone's comfort was taken care of, come what may.


As we settled into our picnic spots, introductions flowed seamlessly, setting the tone for an afternoon filled with new connections and shared stories.


We each enjoyed our picnics, with various homemade delicacies on display - adding an extra dimension to our conversations.


It never fails to surprise me how food can start a meaningful discussion.🧺


One of the fun and interesting aspects of the day was the collective exchange of travel aspirations and cherished memories. We found ourselves engrossed in tales of places we've explored and dream destinations on our bucket lists.


This simple conversation starter quickly transformed into a bonding experience, with every person having a unique story to contribute.


But the fun didn't stop there! With the sun playing hide-and-seek among the clouds, we embarked on a fun group activity that added a dash of friendly competition to the atmosphere.


Teams formed naturally and over the next hour, there were clever guesses, not-so-clever guesses, a bit of impromptu singing, and the sweet taste of victory for some - the winning team emerged, proudly sporting their well-deserved 'winners medals.'


Following the activity, the group gathered together, with some individuals mingling and conversing with others they hadn't interacted with yet - conversations continued to flow effortlessly, and connections were formed.


So, if you're considering joining us for our next event or contemplating taking advantage of our introduction service, we encourage you to jump in with both feet.


Our gatherings are not just about picnics or activities; they're about creating a space where connections can thrive, laughter can be shared, and new chapters can unfold.


Thank you once again for making the Singles Over 50 event at Southsea an unforgettable few hours of connection, laughter, and shared experiences.


We can't wait to see you on our next adventure! - Book here for our Singles Over 50 Bottomless Brunch on Saturday 26th August


Warmest Regards,


Jacqui Baker
