Thanks for stopping by. This is the web site of the Fresh Start social club based in North-East Derbyshire.

Fresh Start is a social club predominantly for unattached, separated, divorced or widowed men and women´╗┐ of all ages.  Before you get confused or disappointed you should note that it is not intended to be a dating organisation.  We currently have over 90 members but are always keen for more.  Members come from a wide area including Chesterfield, Matlock, Worksop, Bolsover, Bakewell,  Darley Dale, Dronfield and Sheffield.

Social activities are arranged by individual members and cover all sorts; from weekends away, to the cinema and theatre, line dancing, chess, walking, live music, badminton, meals, bridge, pub quizzes, bowling, golf..... the list is pretty much endless.  There will, if you want, be something to do on any and every day of the week. We tend to get together once a week in Chesterfield and once a month in Matlock for a chat and to plan new things.

Have a look around and get to know us. The Activities tab will show you some of the things we've done - although it is not comprehensive and is rarely up to date!!; What's On? will show you an up to date list of our planned events and one-off "specials" we have planned.  This is always changing so don't be put off if there is nothing you fancy at the moment.

To give us an idea of who's been visiting you can write in the guestbook.  If you need us to contact you to talk about joining then leave details in the contact section and we'll do that as soon as we can and you can be assured of a warm welcome.  Remember everyone here knows how awkward it'll feel at first and we'll do our best to make you feel comfortable.  If you like what you see and want to tell others please use our Facebook link if you want - or you could just speak to actual people and tell them about us!
