What We Do
A friend of mine took me to my first MovedTo social in the summer and I had a fun night sat in a beer garden getting to know some new people with a couple of glasses of wine.
Little did I know that 8 months later some of these people would be me and my boyfriend’s closest friends in Newbury!
Basically every good friend I have in Newbury I met through MovedTo. Last year I made over 80 new friends from socials alone! I came along to my first social alone in December 2015 – I was meant to be going with my housemate, but she had to cancel just before. I decided to go anyway, I didn’t know anybody, but everyone was really friendly and I quickly felt at ease. I’d then broken the ice and coming along to the next social was exciting and much easier.
I “MovedTo” Newbury 23 years ago, so am not exactly a newbie to the area, however after university I found all of my friends were moving away and my social life took a hit. MovedTo has given me a new lease of life in Newbury, with a fantastic new group of friends and opportunities I hadn’t even realised were out there. It’s also really helped me address social anxiety issues that had started affecting me. MovedTo is perfect not just for people new to the area but anybody wanting to expand their social life and get more out of the area we live in.
I discovered MovedTo after moving to Newbury last year to be closer to work. As I knew no one already living in Newbury I went to my first MovedTo Newbie social on my own and found the group couldn’t be more welcoming. I have made some great friends since being here and that is solely due to MovedTo. There is a wide variety of events on offer, so there is something for everyone and there is always the opportunity to put forward your own event ideas I would highly recommend MovedTo for anyone either new to Newbury or just looking for something new to do.
I’ve had so much fun in the past year and it’s mainly thanks to joining MovedTo. I went to my first social in March and I’ve never looked back! I’d been meaning to go along for a while after noticing their events popping up on my newsfeed, and I felt so welcome straightaway. Since then, I’ve been to almost every social, made so many wonderful new friends, and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without this fantastic group in my life. The summer of 2016 is one I’ll always remember, filled with epic days out in the sunshine and evenings that finished when the sun came up. I’m so looking forward to meeting even more new people in 2017 and doing lots more new activities with MovedTo!
I came along to MovedTo to meet a new group of people & mix up my social life. Turned up to one of the drinks socials as a last minute decision, a year or so later I now have made some great new friends. Been to some great events – who knew driving around the local countryside areas looking for clues in a car treasure hunt could be such good fun! Being big kids at the New Forest Waterpark was another highlight.
