I have lived in Stevenage for most of my life and obviously noticed a great deal of change.

I am now middle aged and single and as a result of this have found that there are no social venues in this area for single people in my age group, who would like to meet others in the same situation, be it for friendship or a permanent relationship.

There used to be several single clubs for older people, but they have all gradually closed down, ie. Novotel, Hertford Park, Cromwell and the Silver Hall at Graveley. Internet and speed dating are all very well, but do not suit everyone.

In the Stevenage area you can only have a good social life if you are in your 20s/30s or are a pensioner. People of my age do still want to go out and have fun, but sadly this does not seem to be an option for us.
