Aged 25 - 45?
No longer will you need to be bored at the weekends or feel like a stranger in a new town - if you are between 25 and 45 then joining Stevenage Plus Social Club is a fantastic way to make new friends and have fun in a friendly, easy going atmosphere.
Imagine having a choice of a wide range of organised social events such as parties, quizzes, restaurants, discos, UK trips, sports events and even holidays abroad. And whether you choose to take part in all, or just a few events, you will always be made to feel welcome.
On Thursday evenings we play a variety of light-hearted games or take part in fun-quizzes - nothing too serious. It's done in teams, and who wins doesn't matter.
On Saturdays there is a varied programme of events such as bowling, dog racing, eating out in local restaurants or having a good party. Thursdays are always at our club venue in Stevenage, while on Saturdays the social event may be around the Stevenage, Letchworth, Hitchin, Baldock area, or further afield.
We are currently a fairly small Stevenage based friends group of about 25 members aged from late 20's to mid 40's, and are looking to increase the number of members over the next few months. So if you're from Stevenage, Hitchin, Baldock, Letchworth or anywhere close and would like to make new friends and meet new people while having a good time, come along to Stevenage this Thursday evening and give it a try.
If you'd like more information please call 01438 231550
Coming down for the first time
It's always slightly nerve-racking going to places for the first time, and we understand that. You are welcome to email in advance if you have any specific questions, but really nothing quite beats just giving it a try.
If you arrive at around 8.15pm then there will be a few people in the bar area who will give you a bit more information about the club, and it's a perfect opportunity to ask any questions.
You can't join until you've been down 4 times, so there is no pressure to make any decisions.

Frequently Asked Questions
The price for a Thursday night event is just £2, while at the weekend it really depends on what event is on, so for example a house party would not really cost anything while a meal out or bowling would be the normal prices.
Annual membership is £10 in the first year and £20 thereafter, which entitles you to come down to any Stevenage event, and to any event organised by other groups around the UK.
Entry is FREE on your first Thursday night, and you can come down 4 times before deciding whether to join or not.
