We are an extremely friendly social and activities group for Stamford, Peterborough, Oakham, Uppingham and the surrounding area. We are by far the LARGEST Meetup group within 30 miles of Stamford and 40 miles of Peterborough.
The group is a great way to meet people, make new friends and experience different activities. Maybe you are new to the area or perhaps one day you decide that you should be doing more with your leisure time. Well this is the perfect opportunity.
It’s free to join and we don’t charge for any of the events. Consequently we don’t need bank details or personal details such as address and date of birth. So don’t delay; press the green button in the top right hand corner that says “Join us!” and let the good times commence.
Once you have joined, you will have full view of the entire website. As a non-member you only have a limited view to protect the privacy of the members.
MORE DETAILS ON THE GROUP
We are extremely fortunate to be centred on Stamford, the "finest stone town in England" with its 600 listed buildings, five medieval churches and vibrant social scene. With such a large and active membership we also organise activities throughout Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. Consequently we also have many members from Peterborough, Oakham, Uppingham, Grantham, Oundle etc.
The events we do are aimed to be as broad as possible and they can be regular or ad-hoc.

IS THIS A SINGLES CLUB?
It’s not a singles club as such although most of the members tend to be single. Consequently it’s open to couples as well. The purpose of the group is for people to make friends and anything else is an extra gain. However abusing the website as a free dating website and sending messages to people that you have never met or hardly know will not be tolerated. You will be removed as a consequence.
CODE OF CONDUCT/BEHAVIOUR
We expect everybody to treat others with respect. We will remove any member showing inappropriate or antisocial behaviour. See "House Rules" for more details.
ATTENDANCE AT YOUR FIRST EVENT
Please don’t leave it too long before you go to your first event; we are all extremely friendly. If you are a little shy or apprehensive please contact me or the event host and we will give you extra special care to meet and greet you. You can also bring a friend as a +1 if that helps.
To join the group you must have a photograph that clearly shows your face, (ie at least 50% of the picture) and no hat, no sunglasses etc. A passport style picture would be ideal. This is very important because it helps us spot you at your first events and also increases the trust and security within the group.
To join you must use your real name rather than a username.
