My name is Lyndsey and I created Connected Brighton because I needed connection.
I'm born and bred Brighton, have fabulous friends, but our lives are very different. I didn't have children when my mates did, I got divorced when they didn't, and it changed my circle exponentially.
Add to that a break up, a redundancy and a pandemic where everyone became pretty insular. All of which left me wondering who I was going to spend my time with when the world opened up.
Turns out I was not alone.
I've met so many amazing people through creating Connected Brighton with similar stories, who are local or new to the area, in singles and couples, who have been through life changes and who were also looking for connection.
The first newsletter was sent in March 2021, with our first event being a picnic in the April 2021 lockdown. Then under the outdoor sports rules we played Petanque, then groups of six were allowed inside and eventually we had dinners together as the rules eased.
Within a year, we've become a Visit Brighton partner and a trusted social network for personal and professional connections, running three events a week that support local businesses and bring people together looking to socialise, network and date. Think of us as your Social Concierge!
We are a friendly group and a growing supportive community - this isn't a singles club, it's a people club. I've watched friendships form, members spend Christmas together, refer work, have holidays together, become swim buddies, dined out and some have even dated (read our reviews here - Connected Brighton Ltd Reviews | Psydro).
