Coronovirus – Covid 19 crisis and its impact on Harbour Friends Social Group

It is with great regret, that due to government restrictions and personal safety, we have to announce that our regular Wednesday evening meet ups are now cancelled for the foreseeable future. Likewise, all of our published special events, be they at the Yacht club or elsewhere, have had to be cancelled up until at least the end of June. We will of course be reviewing the situation as things progress and we do hope that most of the events that we had planned, will still be able to still be run, but in the latter half of the year. As soon as we are given the green light to re-commence our activities, we will of course email all of our members. In the meantime, the committee would like to wish you all well for the future. Please stay as safe as you can and we look forward to a grand re-union of members as soon as possible.

A Warm Welcome to all at Sovereign Harbour

Harbour Friends is a friendly social group, which is predominantly (but not exclusively) for residents of Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne.

The aim of the groupĀ is to promote and foster friendship amongst harbour residents and to organise social events and trips for the enjoyment of its members.

We meet every Wednesday evening between 7.30pm and 10.30pm in the first floor bar lounge of the Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club.

Since our formation in 2005 we’ve enjoyed a bewildering array of events, including trips within the UK and overseas, plus Quizzes, Beetle Drives, TV Game Show Nights, BBQs, Dinner Dances, Group Meals, Greyhound and Horse Racing, Treasure Hunts, Croquet, Camping, Canoeing, Bowls, Pub Skittles, Tenpin Bowling, Stately Home Visits, Theatre Visits and many more, not forgettingĀ our annual Christmas party.

Our Events Page lists upcoming events as well as giving you a chance to see previous events that we’ve organised. You can also find updates of our past and future activities on the Waterlines website.

We are very aware that making friends can be extremely difficult when you retire, divorce or move to a new area. Why not arrange to meet with us by using the form on the Contact Us page. Everyone is more than happy to welcome you to join them and that is all it takes to start a new and exciting chapter of your life.

Go on why not give it a try. You have nothing to lose and plenty to gain. We look forward to the possibility of seeing you soon.
