Over 50s Clubs - How to use this section!

Hi All

As we discussed in the Over 50s Dating announcement, we thought it might be an idea to have a clubs section too - where members can meet other people over 50 local to them. Whether you're looking to make friends, searching for travelling buddies, or just looking to chat - helpfully this section will be a good start.

It's easy too - all you need to do is either post in the thread for your area, or if there isn't one yet, create one... and hopefully others from your area will pop in and say hello!

Don't worry about starting a thread for you area if you feel there aren't many members registered here already from your area - that's the purpose of this section, by creating these threads people looking for clubs in your area will hopefully find your thread via Google... and log on to say hello

I hope you like this new feature - and get to make lots of new friends because of it

How do you create a club thread for your area?

It's easy, simply start a new thread in the following format (just replace <area> with your area - town or city should be fine):

Title: Over 50s Club <area>

Post text:

Welcome to the Over 50s Club <area>

Everyone from <area> is welcome to pop in and say hello to start mingling and making friends

We recommend subscribing to this thread so you do not miss any newcomers, and we also welcome suggestions for meet-ups or other ideas to help form a local community.

Above all we hope you will enjoy chatting to those of us local to you in this thread, or with everyone else on the rest of the site ...we're a friendly bunch
Code to copy:

Welcome to the Over 50s Club <area> :039:

Everyone from <area> is welcome to pop in and say hello to start mingling and making friends :mrgreen:

We recommend subscribing to this thread so you do not miss any newcomers, and we also welcome suggestions for meet-ups or other ideas to help form a local community.

Above all we hope you will enjoy chatting to those of us local to you in this thread, or with everyone else on the rest of the site ...we're a friendly bunch :)

Example thread:

Want to see an example? Take a look at the Over 50s Club Somerset thread

Who can post in these threads?

- Those who live in the area
- Those who are positively interested in the area (so no negative remarks from those who do not live in the area or any kind of trolling allowed!)

I will copy your post into a new thread and do it for you - we can then use your thread as an example
