One of our favourite things at Whistle Punks is seeing a group of people come together to cheer on each other, to start talking, and sometimes maybe, just maybe, make friends.
However, we realised that this often isn’t the case in the real world, with the busyness of life meaning people are talking with others less and less. Loneliness is a major mental health concern, so we decided to see how big the issue is and if large group activities, like axe throwing, could help turn the tide.

Have you ever gone a day, a week, or even longer without having an actual face-to-face conversation? If the answer is yes, you’re not alone, the results are in, younger generations of Brits report feeling less comfortable with face-to-face communication, and more than half are uncomfortable starting a conversation with a stranger.
With the number of channels of communication open to us, it’s no wonder that people are less eager to talk with people, which means missing out on the obvious advantages of connecting face-to-face gained from partaking in large group activities.
