Speed dating form
Registration for the Speed Dating Walk is £12.00 to include a lunch.The walk will start at the Beach Café in Sandown and also finish at this lovely location.By the time we paired up, (and as chance would have it we had the same starting number) we could have walked back into the pub and skipped the walk as conversation flowed and shared interests came to light.5 years on we are still sharing those interests in our house in France.
Turning a rough 2 acres of ground into pasture and vegetable patch was a hard challenge and took effort.Not just with the physical side of things but getting to grips with doing everything in a different language, with different systems and different practices.Various emotions, nervous laughter, anxious chatter, knowing smiles, assessing glances, frowns and feigned nonchalance flitted across the faces of the assembled group in the pub at Wroxall like butterflies amongst summer flowers.Someone was smiling on him as his nervous conversation lead to the realisation that the person he was talking to shared his interest in golf, (he'd left Westridge Golf Course just an hour before the start of the walk), walking, dogs and so on.
The next Speed Dating walk will take place on Sunday 8 May and registration forms are now available.
Age groups will be mixed, but it provides a great chance at the beginning and end of the walk to socialise and meet all walkers.
