Jump Right In - with the Weekends Away

Aug 21, 2019

It can be daunting for new members to our social and activity group to work out what would be the best Spice event to dip their toes into.

The thought of not knowing anyone or what to expect is not an unusual feeling for anyone new to Spice. When asked what event you would suggest from the Spice Team for new members, they would say Jump Right In and book one of the weekends away.

This may seem like the opposite of what a new member would want, however in our experience this helps on several levels as the longer time means you will have time to relax in the surroundings and get to know your fellow members. Often it can be the start of new friendships when members discover interests in common, or realise they are from the same area so they can travel to future events together.

Spice Manchester organise and host many weekends throughout the year across the UK and beyond. Coming up over the next few months we have a Chill Out Hostel & Camping in Anglesey, Walking weekends in the Lake District (Keswick), Yorkshire (Malham or Whitby), Wales (Gower), Cumbria (Hadrian’s Wall), Exmoor (Selworthy), Norfolk (Cromer), Shropshire (Church Stretton), Hampshire (Winchester), plus Horse Riding in Shropshire, a Jacobean Mansion Christmas Party Weekend in Staffordshire, Christmas in Lincoln, Peak District (Dovedale) for Twixtmas and New Year in Devon (Sidmouth).

Our Walking Weekends have a choice of walks each day catering for differing abilities and the Social Weekends will have variety of activities included or as additional book-ons for members to choose from.

When joining Spice Manchester, you automatically become a member of Spice UK and are welcome to book events, weekends and holidays organised by any of the other Spice offices around the UK. More events are added weekly and the online Spice UK Events and Holiday diary allows members to filter by type of event, region or distance from a postcode.

So, what are you waiting for? Jump right in and we look forward to seeing you on an event soon.

If that still sounds a little daunting, our office is open weekdays and we’d be happy to speak to you on 0161 864 3849 and help you find the right first event.
