Andrew & Cathy – “March 2020 brings a whole mixture of things to enjoy! We’ve done the France Coach Trip Weekend in March and the weather in Brittany has often been especially nice, so if you fancy this, let us know by January 2020. Also, if you’re like us and absolutely love going to see live music, there’s a choice of two fab live music festival weekends courtesy of Butlins, with stars from the 70s and 80s. Also, locally, other live entertainment to book for. With fun things to do and exciting activities to try. All in all, something for everyone and plenty of good times and good company!”

Andrew & Cathy – “We’ve sort of gone for a laid back CASUAL theme for APRIL 2020. Casual dining. Casual cinema. Casual drinks. Good value, easy going, low cost socialising. With all the usual good company with other Social Group members. Advisory dress code will be ‘PRETTY CASUAL’ – so chill out, with casual shirts, sweatshirts, jeans, and generally letting it all hang out! No problem! No worries!“

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS TAKEN PART

COMING SOON… BUY THE BOOK!
Andrew Haglington is now busy writing a book about how he founded the ‘group of friends’, how he started calling things ‘social’, what really went on behind the scenes, both in the UK and on group holidays all around the world, and pretty much everything himself and his wife Cathy have been through. Hosting thousands of social events. Socialising with lots of interesting people. Featuring all kinds of fun, excitement, and good times – with plenty of drama too. Along the way, raising money for good causes, and managing to help thousands and thousands of people make friends and enjoy a better social life.
Working title “The Man Who Invented Social Networking”.

PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED

Our team have successfully organised all kinds of social events / services for people to enjoy for over 20 years. If you would like to join in and socialise with our group at the things we organise, you need to become a Social Group Member before taking part.

Social Group Membership is extremely good value, with lots on offer and plenty of choice throughout the year and seasonally – in Summer the programme of events includes more outdoor things, while in Winter the programme of events includes a range of festive party nights, for instance.

Everyone made welcome! Please enjoy the many hundreds of photos of previous events over 20+ years on display on our websites and social media pages – ideal if you want to see the sort of things we have run previously!

Social Group Members can take part on any Social Group event in any Social Group area, locally and further afield.

If you book for something we are organising and require overnight accommodation, rooms should be booked via the Social Group Admin Team in the Social Group Office on 03456 121 770.

The only people joining in and socialising with our group should be people who have booked with the Social Group Admin Team in the Social Group Office via 03456 121 770. All Social Group events and services are ‘subject to availability’ and everything is offered on a ‘book in advance’ basis. Please book well before the stated booking deadline for each entry (as printed in Social Group Magazine).

All bookings are taken in accordance with our Terms & Conditions. All events are offered ‘subject to availability’ and cannot be absolutely guaranteed they will be available. Please refer to the Terms & Conditions for more on how everything works. All members agree to abide by procedures and the Terms & Conditions. All members agree to treat our team fairly and with respect.
