Fees & Refunds
The total fee, required up front, is £27.12 which includes the price of the meal, a £1 charge that goes towards the costs that I pay to run this meetup group (any extra goes to costs of hiring rooms for the group etc), and the paypal fees. On the day there will also be a service charge added by the restaurant. This will be divided equally among everyone and has never been more than £5, so please don't worry!
If you are a full member, you will receive the £1 charge back either at the event or by paypal on the evening of the event.Not a full member but would like to be? Please read this page: http://www.meetup.com/the-casual-foodie-club/about/

Within seven days, you will receive 70% back, within 14 days you will receive back 80% back, any time before that you will receive 90% back.
