I started up the Loughborough Social because I felt there was a little gap between the 3 main East Midland cities of Leic, Derby and Notts, and Loughborough is a good centre point for those unable to travel to one of the larger groups or just wanted something local.
The idea is to meet every now and then for social events and to give you the opportunity to make friends and socialise. Between all the meet up groups around, there's lots and lots of activities so hopefully Loughborough can also provide something for everyone to add to their calendars.
I started the group in June 2012 and we have a great group and everyone is very friendly and welcoming to new comers, so don't be shy and don't worry, just pop along, make sure you have a recent photo (so we can look out for you) and enjoy. :)
The group is open for any age and it would be nice to have younger members join and keep us older souls on our toes. If anyone has ideas for meet ups, please feel free to suggest something and if it suits the group then we'll put the ideas up.
Membership is FREE - However, yearly we ask for a contribution from members who attend our events. This is to cover the cost of fees charged by the Meet Up website (approx £110 per year). So far we have asked for a small donation of £4. (this is a donation and not compulsory)
