About Way Up
As well as our online forum, we also meet up with each other in the ‘real world’. Our online forum means that such meets can be arranged safely and securely with access being for members only.
We do not have a formal network of local groups or area organisers. Events are organised by any of our members, for any of our members, and have taken place locally, regionally, nationally and even internationally! From a simple meeting over coffee and cake, to holidays all over the world, only members can gain access to details of events, meetings or indeed to other members.
We have travelled by boat, train and plane and by road, in groups large and small.
We have visited Iceland and Africa, Australia and India and many places in between. We’ve eaten together and played together, camped and glamped, walked, run and ridden. We are usually first on the dance floor and last off it but can also be found meditating, practising yoga and being spiritual. We’ve been pampered, been theatrical, sung, painted and just chilled together.
For such a disparate group of friends who often have only one thing in common – though it is a huge thing! – we really do seem to forge deep and meaningful friendships. Most of all, we have laughed together and cried together and formed the sort of friendships we find non-members often yearn for – until they find out what it is that binds us together!
