meeting new people

I am finding it hard to meet new people after my husband died last year. I have tried a walking group but they are mainly men . I am just trying to find female friends for meet up for lunch theatre art museums coffee shopping and a good chat. i lost touch with my work friends when i retired five years ago just needed my husband. i live in the wolverhampton area west midlands perhaps someone could advise how I can gain confidence to maybe join a group.

Hi greenmeadow, I’m really sorry about the loss of your husband, it’s really hard to start going out again, it’s easier to stay at home where you feel safe, at least that’s how I felt, have you though about joining the WI, they are usually very welcoming and cover a wide range of topics, the WI that I’m a member of have splinter groups like a walking group, dinner club, book club etc and they are usually very friendly, it might be a good place to start. Love Jude xx
