This Gents Peer Support Group provides a welcoming, safe and friendly opportunity for people to meet up to share experiences, tips and information.

You are invited to join Mark Baxter for an evening of chit-chat and catching up at our virtual men's group.

Please join us from 7pm, where you can get acquainted with mates both old and new. You will then either move to one of our chat rooms or pull up a chair and have a chat with Mark in the Lobby.

When registering, simply choose two rooms from the drop down list and you will be moved to each one in 20 minute intervals to allow you to meet and chat with like-minded attendees or, if you prefer, please feel free to stay in the same room for the duration of the meeting, just select the same choice for both room one and two.

The Lobby
Facilitator – Mark – Retina UK’s Information & Support Coordinator.
Pull up a comfy chair, grab yourself a drink and some snacks and share what’s on your mind from daily living, to your fears, frustrations, worries & woes with a listening ear.

The Fireplace Lounge
Facilitator – James – Our Berkshire local peer group facilitator.
Relax & unwind with your favourite drink, sink into a warm cosy sofa by our large fireplace and share a conversation with friends.

The Smart Suite
Facilitator – Richard – Our Wrexham & Wales local peer group facilitator.
If you’re into gadgets & gizmos, then this hi-tech haven is the hangout for you. This room is completely voice controlled from the jukebox to the massaging Lazy Boy recliners featuring a state of the art AI Assistant called ‘Caroline’ just say “Hi Caroline”….

The Pit-Stop Garage
Facilitator – Dan – Our local peer group Tech Support volunteer.
If you’re a petrol head, grease monkey or motorsport fanatic then this room is right up your raceway, featuring audio described motoring memorabilia from classic cars to Formula 1. So take a bucket seat and talk shop around a glass table featuring a beautifully restored V8 Cobra LeManns engine from a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 underneath.

The Guide Dog Deck & Garden
Facilitator – Colin – Our Tyne & Wear local peer group facilitator.
This is a great place to share stories, advice & experiences about your faithful four legged companions under our covered heated decking in comfortable rattan furniture any time of the year. Feel free to let your pooch off their harness to explore scents & smells around our enclosed garden, while you relax with a beverage or two.

The Half-Time Terrace
Facilitator – Damian – Our West Yorkshire local peer group facilitator.
This rooftop hideaway is completely sheltered in the winter or can be opened up on a warm sunny day and is perfect for when the final whistle blows. If you’re into all things sports then this room is the penalty spot for you, come and talk sports or share some locker room banter.


Please feel free to come along and join us to catch up with old mates or to make some new ones, we look forward to seeing you there!



This meeting will be held online via Zoom.
