Fed up of feeling isolated, a Grantham woman is setting up a friendship club for similarly lonely women.
Lorraine Templeton, 49, has struggled to meet new people since moving into the town a year ago and so has decided to take action. Her aim is to create an informal group full of women who can share a real mix of hobbies and interests, with no membership fee or set monthly meetings.
She said: “You find yourself thinking you’d really like to go out for a nice meal but the last thing you want to do is go into a restaurant on your own. It’s much nicer to meet up with a nice group and have a really good laugh and come back feeling so much better.”
