I lost my husband a year ago and am finding it very hard to meet new friends in a similar situation. I live in the Norwich area love walking my dogs, I’m not looking for love jus5 a like minded friend

PolyP can I suggest that you start a chat on Gransnet Local Norwich?
There are often meetups there or you can arrange one on the local forum.

Poly, I am sorry to hear that, it must be very hard.
Do go onto the meet up forum and write suggesting a meet up probably somewhere central in norwich and wait to hear from anyone interested.
I was a bit lonely too do did the same thing in the south east and we have been meeting since February, its worked out very well. Good luck.

Afternoon Polyhemus - funny old thing but we have just moved up to near Norwich and have a little dog!

Sadly, I'm not the dog walker as I have a mobility scooter but if I can find walks with paths then I shall be heading out.

I was lucky enough to meet a lovely lady when in our previous home, from GN and we met up every few weeks for coffee , a good chat and to swap tales of life in general.

So maybe, if you'd like to do similar in the New Year we could arrange something?

Hi NanaandGrampy yes that would be lovely. I compete with my dogs at agility, there is a lady that competes on a mobility scooter and has just been chosen for the park Agility team

That’s fabulous! Many years ago I used to compete at agility with one of my Bernese Mountain Dogs ! I’ll pm you .

Hi nana, hope the move went well. Enjoy norfolk. Its a lovely county with lots to see, and hardly any traffic jams, (which you definitely wont be missing) .
Good luck.
