Join our Weekly Meet Ups in Liskeard
Connect with likeminded quieteers at Liskeard Public Hall, every Wednesday from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.
This weekly group is designed to help you make meaningful connections with likeminded people in a calm and gentle way that feels authentic to your true quiet self.
Whether you’re chatting and sharing stories with your fellow quieteers, enjoying a craft or wellbeing activity, or simply relaxing with a good book in the company of others, this is a safe space where your quiet voice matters - and where you can feel part of a community that truly gets you.
We can’t wait to welcome you.

What to Expect
What Quieteers are Saying
“The best bit is that there’s no pressure to be anyone but yourself. Other people can relate to how hard and stressful it can be. It’s really good; a chilled atmosphere and no pressure to participate.”
“Thank you for today, it was an incredibly validating experience, having some company without any pressure to talk or be a certain way. I was surprised how comfortable I felt so quickly.”

How to Join a Liskeard Meet Up
You don’t have to register to come along - it’s okay to simply turn up on the day. However, on the first time that you’re joining us, if you know in advance that you’re going to come along it would be really helpful if you could sign up using our booking form below. This means we can say hello and answer any of your questions before you come along, we can easily contact you if there are any changes to the schedule, and we can get feedback from you now and again to help us improve. It’s your choice though. Either way, we are very much looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the group.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will Liskeard Public Hall be open to the general public during the Meet Up, or is it just quieteers?
The whole New Liskeard Room is ours between 7.00pm and 9.00pm, so it's only us quieteers in the space.
The Liskeard Meet Ups are led by Ellie (see her photo above).
No, all of our Meet Ups are free to attend. We’re a Community Interest Company so funding comes from The National Lottery Community Fund. All refreshments including water, teas, coffees, hot chocolate and biscuits are provided free of charge too - although you’re very welcome to bring along your own drink if you prefer, or additional treats to share with the group.
You don’t have to book - it’s ok to just turn up on the day. However, on the first time that you’re joining us, if you know in advance that you’re going to come along it would be really helpful if you could sign up using our booking form below.

On average, our Liskeard Meet Up typically has around 5 or 6 people in attendance each week.
The New Liskeard Room in Liskeard Public Hall is a cosy and welcoming space, where we aim to create an ambience that feels both calm and re-energising. We’ll often have uplifting or relaxing music playing quietly in the background. Our facilitators focus on nurturing conversations and participation that has a collective positive upwards spiral e.g. gratitude, small comfort zone stretch wins, things that bring us joy, what we’re learning etc. And there is usually a gentle mix of chatter and quieter moments.
Yes, there are stairs to get to the Liskeard Room. There is a lift in the building, but the Liskeard Room has limited accessibility because using the lift means you need to go through another room to get to it, which may be booked out. It’s worth checking with Liskeard Public Hall whether our Liskeard Room will be fully accessible on the date you want to join us by calling 01579 559565 or emailing email@example.com). Ellie can help you with this if you drop her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there *really* no expectation or pressure to join in and participate? Can I *really* go at my own pace?
We really do remove the pressure - because we’ve been there too. As quiet facilitators, we like to think that we’ve found a good balance between being attentive to the group and giving you your own space. If we sense you’re in any difficulty, we will gently make sure that you’re okay. But otherwise we will allow you to join in as much or as little as you like.
Yes. We’ll always encourage you to give yourself what you need. If at any point you feel you need to step away, you are welcome to go and make yourself a cuppa or leave for a break before rejoining the group. Our facilitators will be mindful to offer that space and a check-in chat, if needed.
All sorts! We bring along materials for optional casual activities that’ll spark creativity, start conversations and boost your wellbeing. This might be colouring, painting, crocheting, journaling and more.
Absolutely. We recognise this might be helpful as you’re settling in and getting to know the other group members.
Yes, we’d be happy to help with that. Just send Ellie a message at email@example.com and she’ll arrange this for you.
You’re welcome to try Meet Ups in multiple locations. There’s no obligation to always go to the same one, but you’re more likely to make friends and genuine connections if you go to the same Meet Up more than once.
Whilst many do choose to attend weekly, we also have valuable members within the community who only attend as and when they can.
It’s two hours in length (every Wednesday from 7.00pm to 9.00pm).
We’ve included parking instructions above but feel free to email Ellie on firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like some more detailed information on this. If you’re looking for accessible parking spaces, the closest are at the top entrance to Westbourne Car Park with more available at the bottom end of Westbourne Car Park near to the Co-op supermarket.
We’ve included travel and public transport information above but please email Ellie on email@example.com if you’d like some more detailed information about how to get here.
We’re always pleased to hear from lovely volunteers in our local community. If you think you might like to help us run a Meet Up or get involved with Quiet Connections in another way, please contact Hayley & Stacie on firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll be in touch.
