PlymouthFurs was a regional furry group centered around the city of Plymouth in the United Kingdom. It also covered a majority of the Devon and Cornwall area. They held monthly fur-meets on the last Saturday of every month.
The PlymouthFurs group was set up by LupoWuff and PsyOnyx in late 2015, after the pair noticed there was very little if any furry events in the Plymouth and Exeter areas. The first PlymouthFur meets were held at a local student hangout, a cafe known as the Caffeine Club and were simply social gatherings once a month. The very first coffee meet was held on Friday 23rd of October 2015 and was a big success with 13 attendees. With plenty of advertisement via Facebook and on Twitter the meets continued to grow. Exact numbers at each meet vary, with some meets only having a small group of five or six, and with the larger meets having up to 20 attendees. Their record meet was on the 26th of November 2016 with 34 attendees.
The meets continued to run at the Caffeine Club for many months. However the meets began to outgrow the venue, and many wanted to try something different than the normal routine of sticking to the same venue for every meet. Therefore it was decided that one month the meet would take place in the normal venue, while the following month would be a trip or outing somewhere in the nearby area, with the month following that returning to the venue, and so forth. This proved very popular and allowed the PlymouthFurs group to expand to other parts of Devon and Cornwall.
Towards the end of 2016, the regular venue of the PlymouthFurs moved from the Caffeine Club, to a similar venue called Goodbody's on Mutley Plain. As well as the coffee meets, the PlymouthFurs have hosted cinema trips, a trip to Devon's Crealy Adventure park, and a Christmas Dinner event with many more events were planned for 2017.
In September 2017, LupoWuff stood down as organiser, and as a result the group was disbanded, and all meets for 2017 were cancelled. The group's Telegram group continues to operate and is used for organising impromptu meets within Plymouth and the surrounding area.
