Welcome to CC @Katie676
Do you have a local community noticeboard or newspaper or schools you could put a notice in?
Or any community groups you can reach out through to network?
Or have you looked through listings in your location & recognised any of them in your area where you could perhaps door knock or send an "enquiry" through the msg systems to 'Meet Up'?
You may also like to use related search words here in CC to link up with others, there's a msg system option available
All the best
