Introduce yourself in the London Group

Let other members know you’re here! What’s your name, where do you live, and what are you interested in?

This is a hub to meet new people in your local area – where you can make local recommendations, arrange events, suggest things to do, discuss places to visit, or anything you like that’s local! It’s your group, so please do feel free to start a discussion today.

We’d also love to get your feedback about what you’d like from your local Rest Less group. We launched this recently and we plan to do lots to improve it – so please do have your say below and help us to build this into something special!

    • Izmirbeach 5th September 2021 at 5:10 pm


      I’m new in this group. I live in South London and I work full time in education.

      I love the theatre, concerts, world cuisine and music. I have a keen interest in plants, culture and foraging.

    • Petresy 6th September 2021 at 3:05 pm

      My name is Peter, I’m 63 and retired. My wife is currently working and I was interested in Restless as a way to widen my social circle and maybe meet up with groups of likeminded people in my area. I enjoy walking, reading, music, and the arts. I’ve offered to organise a walk in central London if anyone is interested (https://community.restless.co.uk/forums/topic/walking-in-london/) but I’m equally happy going to art galleries or simply having interesting conversations over a coffee (English or French).

I want to know people with whom I can enjoy the many exciting things London has to offer and to do other things we might create together. I’m all for art galleries, reading, theatre, film, walking/hiking, chat around good food, card games, etc. Looking forward to see if something will come out of this as it’s so new to me!

      Hey, I’m in Harrow, Middlesex (or NW London as some say!) and it seems there’s a lack of members from this area.

      Can’t find anyone local at all! Be great if we could start a ‘Harrow and surrounding areas’ group, for people to chat, meet up and do things together.

      I’m not into walking far, as I’m disabled (I do however drive a car) and use a mobility scooter at times, which is a help and a hindrance! I’ve only run over one guy up til now, so think I must be doing pretty good on my wheels! My brains fine – it’s just my legs that don’t wanna work! 🤷🏼‍♀️

      Would be great to chat to other Middlesexians (is that a real word?) or meet up to visit local places of interest. I don’t mean Harrow McDee’s or Wealdstone High Street, 🙈 more picnics at the Duck Pond Park in Pinner, a leisurely sip at the Black Horse in Sudbury or a slice of delicious pizza from the cafe in West Harrow Park.

      I’m into football(!) love driving, days out and have a keen interest in genealogy. I like history, and reading and listening to audio books. I’m currently doing the Harry Potter series for the second time round. Stephen Fry’s reading voice is so smooth – and helps me get off to sleep! Saying that I think I’m on the same chapter I started 8 weeks ago 😂

      I like travelling home and abroad, and doing a bit of gardening, but not too much! Maybe I should say I like being in the garden – when not much needs doing to it! 🤷🏼‍♀️

      I don’t like nosey neighbours and interfering busybodies.. and have no time for ignorant and rude people.

      I lead a fairly simple life, pottering around doing my own thing, day in day out – but it would be nice to chat to, and possibly meet new friends in the area.

      If you’re bored with nothing to do during the day give me a shout. I’d be happy to have a chinwag 😊
