St. Ives Over 45’s Meetup Group is a voluntary organisation established by me in February 2013. My aim has been to establish a close-knit, enthusiastic and committed group of like-minded members who attend events on a regular basis and who give 100% commitment to making them successful.
Activities of the group include: -
· Dining out
· Wine tastings
· A game of tennis or bridge
We are a very friendly, approachable bunch of people and I encourage new members not to feel daunted when it comes to attending their first event.
Members are required to familiarise themselves with the Membership Rules and comply with them. These rules cover conduct at group events, the liability of organisers of events, complying with administrative issues, termination of membership and other matters. Reading them may help you decide whether this is the right group for you.
From 1 July 2015, the category of Gold Members will cease to exist and instead, all members will be requested to give a voluntary $2 donation when attending a group event. The proceeds from donations will be placed into a fund out of which running expenses of the group will be paid. Any surplus will be given to charity.
The group has been so successful that membership has increased to over 580 members in 24 months, exceeding my expectations. It has become necessary for me to restrict member numbers, as the administration of group activities has become increasingly unmanageable. I have therefore decided to give preference to new members who reside within the enclosed area of the map as shown below.
