Our Spring Drinks Party at Woods in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday 28th April was a fantastic, buzzing evening. In the words of one guest: ?It was a blast.?

We had 80 singles not only from the local area but also from London, Brighton and Hertfordshire.? There was a truly warm, friendly, laughing atmosphere and many connections were made.

A huge thank you to everyone who attended as we managed to raise ?112.50 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.

Here are a selection of some the guest?s comments received via Facebook or email:

Brilliant evening on Saturday 28th. I came from London and it was well worth tackling the rain and wind to get there. Good mix of people and I’ll be signing up for the next one. Please keep me posted!?? ?(Keren, London)

I really enjoyed the evening, thank you. Your ice-breaker cards worked well and gave us quite a few laughs. Any idea when your next event will be please??? ?(Isabel, Tenterden)

I was overwhelmed by the number of people attending and the more or less equal mix of the genders. Virtually everybody was (I found) very approachable and easy to communicate (again perhaps not often the case in meet-ups where people are not previously known to each other).? The real plus was the quality and character of the people, many were in professions and I sensed a great deal of sensitivity and kindness as well as a desire for fun and laughter in the pursuit of a more sociable life.??? (Jules, London)

This was my first Dating Diary event.??I?found? a warm welcome,? a great venue,? and a laid back/ friendly? atmosphere. Enjoyed the evening. Thank you.??? (Roger, Tonbridge)

Some things in life are worth the extra mile.??Look forward to the next one.?? ?(William, West Malling)

I met a whole range of interesting characters at Saturday night’s event in Tunbridge Wells. And thanks to Sarah I may have met that special someone..?? ?(Kevin, Brighton)

Thank you for a lovely evening, unfortunately I didnt meet the man of my dreams, but did have a very good time, and that is what it is all about – fun!? ?( Ruby, Tunbridge Wells)

Thanks for a lovely evening.? Excellent.? Thankyou.? ?(James, Cranbrook)

Having had good experiences at the launch and second dating Diary events, I was pleased to attend the third event. The atmosphere was very pleasant and a small ice-breaking exercise (with a champagne prize!) definitely helped people mix and mingle. Sarah, the lovely hostess, with her two colleagues Jen and Jenny also helped make the evening run smoothly. I would say the evening was VERY successful? 😉 Good value on all levels – Recommended! (Marcus, Kent)

An unexpected fun evening. Very apprehensive to go along alone, but was put at ease from the minute I walked through the door. Great like minded people at a relaxed informal event. (Sophie, Mayfield)

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the last party at Woods.? Everyone was so chatty and friendly, it was a really good atmosphere. I didn’t meet my prince but I met plenty of interesting people, a couple of whom I plan to have a coffee with. (Tatiana, Tunbridge Wells)
