A MALE version of the Meet and Mingle group is to be set up today (Friday).

The original group started by Aksa Marshal aimed to bring together women in Slough who felt cut off or isolated. It has been a great success and the new Meet and Mingle for Men will launch at St Mary’s Church Hall in Church Lane, Wexham at 12.30pm. The Mayor of Slough Cllr Paul Sohal will be special guest.

The launch is open to women - but after that the men are on their own.

Mrs Marshal said: “It all started when husbands of some of our ladies in Meet and Mingle started to take an interest in all the amazing things we were doing. It lead naturally to a men’s group.Of course the new group will also be for men who are isolated and want to become part of a social group.

It will be led by volunteers Sunil Garg and Harpal Sangha. Membership is £10 annually and the group will meet every Friday. Email meetmingle@ymail.com for more details.
