Welcome to CAFE! The Coast and Forest Events group(C.A.F.E.)
This Meetup group is aimed at people who live in or around the southern, coastal part of the New Forest – hence the name. It sets out to help members perk up each other's social lives, by making the most of the excellent leisure facilities and venues we have here locally, right on our doorsteps! If you are “Mid-Life" (!), and maybe find yourself unexpectedly single, there are times when you probably feel like going out to see a film or play or to a comedy night, for a meal, for a walk, for a drink, or even just for a coffee. There's lots to do, but it's not so much fun on your own! This could be the group for you.
Post up here an event or activity you'd really like to go to, and find out if anyone else would like to go along with you! We offer friendship and, mostly-inexpensive, local social activities (pub quizzes, meals, walks, live music, a drink at a country pub on a Sunday evening) - while also keeping an eye out for bigger local events, as well as those in Bournemouth, Southampton and beyond for when we feel like making the extra effort!
People of any age and location are welcome, but please bear in mind that most events may take place within an area roughly Lyndhurst to Lymington, Christchurch to Calshot, or close by, and that activities will be focused on the "mid-life" age range. While most members will be single, the group is open to sociable singles and non singles alike, living in the south of the New Forest or surrounding areas, and especially to those who want to actively contribute event ideas to the group! So, if you wish to meet new people, please join! We hope to meet you soon at an upcoming C.A.F.E. event.
CAFE Meetup is non-profit-making, and exists solely to help its members have Fun! The organisers give their time voluntarily, and reserve the right to exclude from membership anyone they believe intends to use the group for purposes other than …. Fun! Group running costs (website, admin etc) will be covered by a charge of up to £1, collected by the organiser, when you attend an event.
One last point, as profiles on the CAFE site are only visible to members, the organisers have now agreed that, in principle, we would like all members to identify themselves on their profiles with a first name and a surname, and a photograph. This is for a variety of reasons to do with the need to be able to accurately identify members booking (and sometimes paying) for public or private events.
For the time being at least, we are happy to accept something a little less (for example, a first name and a clear facial photo, or a first name and a surname, but no photo) but a first name only, is not acceptable. We must ask you therefore to make sure that your profile meets these minimum standards before we will be able to accept your application.
Come and join us in CAFE .
