A new series of social events for single people is being launched in the North West. A pilot scheme, Lakes Singles Nights (LSN), aims to attract members from throughout Manchester, Lancashire and Cumbria.
The aim, says organiser Nina Scott, is to provide social networking in the real world for single people, with events at cocktail bars, outdoor activities, music venues, art galleries and theatres, and lake cruises. LSN hopes to provide a busy and exciting social life in a world often dominated by couples.
“We want to provide friendship and companionship for people of all ages. Singles often feel isolated and are spending time trying to make friends, or find dates, online. This is a return to the traditional face-to-face way of meeting people.
“We want to make sure that everyone – single, divorced, widowed – can have a good night out without being part of a couple. And without necessarily going on a date.”
Miss Scott says similar schemes work well in London and take the pressure out of socialising. The Lake District was chosen for the northern launch because of the range of venues and activities available, including lake cruises and walking as well as bars and restaurants.
The first event is at the Country Hut cocktail bar in Bowness-on-Windermere on Thursday February 12, 7pm. Potential members can register on the night. Further events will be announced. The entry fee for the first Singles Meet Up Night is £10, with a free drink on arrival. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
