Harbour Magic is open to all! Initially, the group was set up for unattached men and women in their late 40's and above.. However, I've had so many requests from others wanting to join, that Harbour Magic is now open to anyone seeking companionship, fun, and a variety of things to do. Everyone is made to feel welcome and can enjoy the benefits of being part of a larger supportive community.
How did it all start? Hi, I'm Joanna and I love the outdoors, good food, good wine and good company. I wanted to meet like minded people to explore this beautiful area where I live - Chichester Harbour. In September 2018 I decided to research starting up a social club in order to meet new people and make new friends. People that wanted a variety of things to do, and wanted to make the most of the area where they live. Within 3 months I had almost 200 enquiries. It was amazing to realise that there were people right on my doorstep, like me, looking for companionship and similar things to enjoy. I'm really excited about the year ahead and how Harbour Magic will take shape. Do take a look around the website and contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more.
