Coffee Social - New Members

I have been asked several times to put on smaller meetups so going to start a series of these on the 1st Thursday of each month.

This is primarily aimed at new or members who are averse to attending the bigger monthly social events. I know as a group we cant please everybody all the time but we can try and add a few options :)

We can rotate venues around but will try and choose ones where we can sit down, relax and have easy conversation.

Venue suggestions are welcomed.


You can also contact Cain on 07719440972..

      If you were to only speak to a few people, you could pretend the big group nights are small too. It was a good night though.

      Hi Basel,
      We are by the bottom of the stairs, there are signs but it easy to miss them. Hope you can come again and we'll look out for you.

    Sorry guys! I know it's last minute but work has turned out I'm going to be late leaving tonight and since I'm not based centrally and don't drive, I'd be incredibly late. So annoying! Hopefully I'll make one soon and will meet you all :) are there weekend meets at all?

    Thanks to those who have updated their RSVP's it really does help when trying to coordinate these events and gives the organisers a bit of notice to add extra members in where possible.


    We do have a no show policy and remove members who no show repeatedly or change RSVP's at the last minute which makes it fairer for all and encourages a bit of courtesy.

    Hi i have cancelled my attendance due to seeing the comment Prem posted regarding this coffee social is for new members only it is a shame because I do find these smaller events a nice chance to get to know people in a smaller environment then the big monthly events but as I am not a new member I have revoked my place to free it up to a new member

  • Belle F.

    Really sorry had to cancel - I realise now I am double booked but definitely hope to make the next one

    Sorry guys this meetup is Full. The idea being the coffee social is for new members (or those who have not attended a meetup as yet) to get to meet a few regular members in a 'small' group and see what we are about before going to the monthly meetup which tends to have a lot more members attending. Prior to the coffee socials most new members just RSVP'd to the monthly meetup and had a great time which I would recommend those who are on the waitlist to do :) Please do not just turn up to this, unless your RSVP is Yes. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Hi Belle,
    You won't be the only one who will be feeling anxious at their first meet up, don't worry as there are plenty of friendly faces. Everyone is welcomed and I'm looking forward to meeting you.

    As a new member I am a little bit concerned that I might feel out of place as I have noticed that most members seem to be a lot younger than I
