Getting away from social media and having face-to-face conversations is the aim of a new social group in Alexandra.
Kate Mohr, of Alexandra, set up Women of Wine and Wit as a weekly social group for women. A gathering is planned every Friday.
“I’ve lived in Alex for four years and found it quite difficult to meet new people and thought I’d put it out there to see if other people were looking to make new friends also.”
Since she set up a social media group on January 26, almost 100 people had got in touch, and there had been positive attendance at the Friday night gathering.
“I was overwhelmed with the response and have already met some great people who I hope will be lifelong friends,” Ms Mohr said.
