What Did You Miss Most?

Fancy the chance to win a £10 Amazon voucher?! We’ve got 10 up for grabs with our latest survey – so don’t waste any time – we’ve got two quick questions to ask you and that’s it!

What a year it’s been!  March 23rd was the one year anniversary of lockdown and a day we all thought about everything that’s happened over the last 12 months.

So now that we have some dates to look forward to and will be able to start socialising again, we want to know what type of evenings out you’ve missed the most!

Are you ready to bounce back to bingo?  Looking forward to dancing the night away? Or maybe a meal at your favourite pizza place? There are lots of things that we haven’t been able to do and we’d love to know what’s at the top of your list for everything opening back up in April and May.

We’re definitely counting down the days until we can get our glad rags on and have an evening out with friends and family. 

And we’re pretty sure this is going to be a summer of celebrations.  Pssst – did we mention we’re 60 this year too?! Even more reasons to party!

So whether you’re planning to go out-out, or keep it casual with some quiet mid-week outings, we want to know.  Because we’re ready for the Joy Of Going Out (or JOGO for short!).

  54. Tracey

    Meeting up with bingo friends, spending an enjoyable evening out with my husband and or son. I travel 100 miles round trip to go to my local mecca bingo but that buzz feeling is worth the travel. Looking forward to you opening x

  55. Dorothea

    I miss the simple things in life that I took for granted…such as seeing and hugging my grown up children…..and our special mum and daughter days which included shopping, lunch, chattering all day and rounded off by an evening at the bingo!
    I understand this lockdown has meant something different to every individual, but looking at my sons Christmas presents still standing in the living room brings tears to my eyes 😢…you simply do not realise how much you miss hugs.

  56. Jeanette Davenport

    I’ve missed my family the most during lockdown, seeing my grandchildren and having family times. Going to bingo with my bestie, going to the social club with my sister where there was a live band at weekends enjoying ourselves.

  57. Pauline hunt

    To go out,I head for the bingo hall in afternoons I go in alone not feeling out of place, knowing a warm welcome awaits. To meet and talk to complete strangers who become friends. Roll on May!

  58. Bev

    I missed the interaction with people. Bingo is my escape. I’m a home carer and I don’t go out anywhere else except shopping so I’m really looking forward to visiting mecca again.

  59. Kelly

    As a carer I’d love for the people who I look after & care for to see there family’s again, to be able to receive a hug from a loved one, to be able to go out & feel the fresh air and walk holding a loved ones hand & to see new family members (babies) that they haven’t had the privilege to see other than maybe FaceTime but again that’s not the same. We all need our family in times like this. For myself I’d would just love a night out with my co-workers as we did before Covid enjoying ourselves playing bingo & getting tipsy.

  60. pamela hamby

    I miss our Friday/Saturday nights out with my best friends we love playing at our local mecca with a nice bottle of wine and some good food, and willing our numbers to come out lol
