Let’s get to work with FriendsReunited

Top reunion website FriendsReunited is getting busy with a new service to get people back in touch with their old workmates.

More new facilities on FriendsReunited New Zealand
help people find their old military comrades and fellow members of clubs and sports teams.

The New Zealand site has gained more than 10,000 registrations in just a few months. FriendsReunited’s original UK site has nearly 8 million members including thousands of New Zealanders with English roots.

FriendsReunited began with a basic service which has allowed millions of people to find their lost friends of childhood, school and university. But new ways to get back in touch are being added all the time.

The service often brings more than renewed friendship. Parents have found lost children, couples have got back together and finally married after anything up to 50 years.

“Christmas is always a time of year to remember your family and friends and renewed friendship has to be one of the best possible gifts,” said Eddie Castellan of FriendsReunited New Zealand.
