The Auckland Friendship Group

by Haley Smith
(Auckland)

The Auckland Friendship Group is all about friendship within the greater Auckland Region.


For various reasons we can all find ourselves in a physical place where we know no-one or only a handful of people and that can be very lonely and sometimes even distressing.

And I can speak from first hand experience - I found myself living in Auckland with my two children (about 3 years ago now) and I didn't know a soul. Sadly this group didn't exist then! But my goodness the difference it would have made if it had.

Hence my interest in the group. I'm hoping this group will be a lifeline to new people coming to live here, whether they are moving from the other side of the world or merely from the next town.

The Friendship group organises a wide variety of events throughout the year from regular weekly pub quizes to monthly meetup lunches, events in and around the city and yearly one-off festivals.

The members publish ideas of what they would like to do and my job is to organise them !

So if you are new to the city, shy and find making friends hard, a work-a-holic and never get out to meet and greet or just looking to meet new people then this group will be ideal for you.

We are very friendly and always open to new ideas and suggestions relating to promoting friendship.


HALEY SMITH (Group Organiser)

I found this group via this website and it is awesome ! I was new to the city and knew no-one so joined the group and never looked back - my social calendar has never been so healthy!
The organiser, Haley, Is so friendly and welcoming - from day one she treated me like an old friend.
So thanks to this website and thanks to the friendship group - you guys rock !
