SINGLETONS looking for love or just to meet new people are invited to Harwich’s first ever speed dating night.

The event to be staged at the Hotel Continental on Marine Parade on Saturday March 15 is aiming to unite busy people who would not have met otherwise and help increase people’s social circles.

Sophie Suley, who is organising the event, believes it will be a great success.

“We have done a lot of research and we cannot find anything like this much closer than Ipswich of Chelmsford,” she said.

“Hopefully it will be a fun night and it is not designed just for people who are looking for a relationship but also for people who are new to the area and want to try and meet new people.

Sessions for 20-30 year olds and 30-40 year olds will be open starting at 6.30pm and 9pm respectively.

Tickets are available at or by searching for Red Rose Speed Dating on Facebook.
