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.  

A local club for local people

How did it all start?  Hi, I'm Joanna and I love the outdoors, good food, good wine and good company.   Being on my own, I wanted to meet like minded people to explore this beautiful area where I live - Chichester Harbour.   I had joined several groups but nothing quite satisfied my love of variety and need to have fun!  So I decided to start up my own social club in September 2018 and within 3 months I had almost 200 members. It was amazing to realise that there were people right on my doorstep, like me, looking to meet new people for companionship and similar things to enjoy.  I'm really excited about the year ahead.  Do take a look around  the website and contact me if you have any questions.
