Welcome to the Chesterfield & North East Derbyshire Meetup
This is a group with a focus on having a good time without breaking the bank. A group for people who are looking to make new friends or keep in touch with old friends through social interaction and a variety of meetup events.
Our events are not confined to Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire, we will be venturing over the boarders into South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and The Peak District and on occasion even further afield with weekends away and other events in a variety of different towns and cities.
Friends from all walks of life are welcome to request to join the group and there are a few ground rules to help us all make the group work. When joining the group you will need to complete a basic profile with a clear photo of yourself to enable our event hosts and other members to recognise you at events (NB Your request to join the group will be declined if you chose not to show a photo of yourself on your group profile, this is a closed group so profile photo's are not visible to anyone outside the group)
It is anticipated that YOU are responsible for yourself - ie your personal safety - when attending any events. Therefore you will need to be over 18 years of age to join the group and attend events.
Guests may be invited to a limited number of events, but will be required to join the group after 2 attendances. Some events are limited to NED members only, in cases where event numbers are limited group members will be given ample time to join an event before guests (+1's) will be considered. All non member +1's are required to pay a £2 event fee from 1st Dec 2014 onwards (those +1's already booked onto events before 1st Dec are not required to pay the event fee. The event fee is not required for children under the age of 18yrs attending public events )
Please Note that this is an adult group. If you are wanting to bring a child to any of the public group events you need to contact the event organiser to be sure this is ok. Not all events are suitable for children and as an adult group you need to be mindful that not everyone wants to see children on group events.
Pets / animals are NOT normally permitted at NED group events, however a limited number of dogs may be permitted on the group walks, but as a group member if you are planning to attend one of the group walks you will need to contact the Walk Leader to check it is ok to attend the walk with your dog. ( The number of dogs allowed on a walk is at the discretion of the walk leader and he or she may need time to determine which members are attending an event before they can give you a yes or no answer) Please be aware that any member who just turns up to a walking event with a dog without first having contacted the Walk Leader may be turned away.
Membership of the group is £10 per year (£5 if you join the group between June and December) Paid membership runs from January to December. New members are given a month to try out the group before paying their membership fee. The membership fee will covers site costs, Insurance for walking events and other incidental costs incurred by the group over the course of the year.
We ask that you let our event hosts know if you are unable to attend an event you have put your name down for and be sure to change your RSVP accordingly to free up your place.
If you sign up to events and then do not show up or let the organiser know you are unable to attend well in advance of the event start time you will be classed as a "No Show" any member who receives three "No Shows" will have their membership suspended. Also members who sign up to a run of six events without attending any of them will receive a warning and may be excluded from attending those events in the future.
Please don't be afraid to suggest meetup events, even if you are new to the group or outside our geographical area, we always welcome input from members who would like to become involved with the running of the site and the organising of events.
