Member Testimonials

A few words from some of our members to share their views of Simply Social


"I have been a member of Simply Social for several years and joined when I moved to Bristol in 2003. When I moved to Bristol I didn't know anyone and I didn't know the city either. I've made long terms friends and got to know Bristol so well and what this lovely city has to offer and I've been on some great foreign city breaks with the club. I would thoroughly recommend this club to anyone wanting to widen their social horizons and build up close social relationships.


"Friends encouraged me to join Simply Social in 2012, at a time when I was looking to widen my social network. Badminton was the main attraction, but since joining Simply Social I've enjoyed Meals, Walks & holidays and have a whole new circle of friends"


"I enjoy all the get togethers and feel the members are real friends as I have known them for many years and we have had lots of fun times and holidays abroad etc"


"Many years ago my job relocated from London to Bristol. Having left all my friends behind in the smoke I needed to start a new life. Upon joining Simply Social I was made to feel very welcome and have since made many very good friends with whom I’ve enjoyed a great social life"
