Who are you?

We are a friendly social group, comprising around 30 people, who meet several times a week for social/ sports events, parties, discos, quizzes and more! We provide a welcome break from everyday life, adding fun and variety. As part of a national network of groups, run voluntarily by members, membership of Barnet Plus gives access to many other groups across the country - so you can quickly form a wide social network of friends. Take a look at The National Federation of Plus Groups website to discover the sheer scale of things. By joining, you will have access to valuable opportunities to network and meet a large variety of people from all around the country.
