What we're about
Are you a single in London and above 45? Then this is the right group for you. \
Apparently, singles live more fulfilled lives as they have better social connections, that’s if we are not Netflix addicted. Let’s get off that couch and meet others, we are after all interesting, fun and we have a lot to share. \
Join me to build the largest meet up group of 45+ singles in London. \
We are organising nights out, arts events, walks, festival attendance, dinners, and lots more. \
Join and tell others at our age, the more people join, the more interesting the events will become. Please note, to keep the group running we will be charging a min. of £1.50 for each participant per meet-up. Follow us on twitter @Singles45 (45+ Singles in London).
We will adhere to the governance guidance at every events at all times. Government suggestions . Please make sure you bring a face mask to each event in case you need it.
Please ONLY sign up to events if you intend to attend. Late cancellations may result in you being removed from the group. We now have a two strikes policy.
We do not normally cancel events in this group but there may be circumstances where we feel we absolutely have to. If the cancellation is our fault, e.g. the organiser is ill, we will offer some form of compensation for your £1.50 but if there are external reasons for cancelling an event such as really bad weather or Covid restrictions tightening up again, no compensation will be offered.
However, please be assured that we are not taking cancellations lightly and we will only result to that if it is absolutely necessary.
Please also take some time to read our group etiquette:
1. Let us know if you cannot make it
It is not fair to keep the organisers wondering whether or not you may show up. If you change your mind, please let us know either by changing your RSVP or by sending a text. However, cancellations should be no later than 2 days before the event to enable other people to plan their attendance. Please keep in mind that going forward, we will be removing everyone from the group who cancels at short notice twice. Removing you from the group will also result in you losing the pre-paid maintenance fee as that is non-refundable. If you had all intentions of attending but you find yourself not able to do so, text your organiser as soon as possible.
2. Respect and appreciation
In this group respect is key. That means respect for everyone who attends but also for the organiser of the event. Our events are mostly free of charge. Please consider that your organiser is running this event in their own time voluntarily and show them some appreciation. We are not a commercial group, we are doing this because we like it.
3. Only message members if they have agreed to it
Please do not contact members unless they have agreed to it. Please be considered and remember we are not a dating group but singles who want to spend time in each others company.
4. Participation for any event will be at your own risk
Your participation in any of our events is at your own risk. It is for you to assess whether you are fit enough to participate in any of our events.
5. Consider the volume of your communication
Our wonderful event organisers will provide you with all the information you need in the event description. You are of course welcome to clarify things with us but please consider the volume of your communication. We are organising these events because we enjoy it but we are expecting you to assume responsibility as well of course. Our job is to simply find the venue/event, to tell you about it and to welcome you on the day, that is why we are not charging.
Also, we cannot influence venue policies and externally organised events.
6. Be on time
Please try to be on time. It is not fair to expect the whole group to wait for you. We usually leave on time. If you have not arrived by then, you will have missed the event. We do not offer possibilities to join the group later or catch up with us unless you can do that without communication with the organiser. Please refrain from contacting the organiser after the meet up time.
7. Add a picture to your profile
Organising a meeting is difficult if we have to guess what someone may look like. If you don't have a picture on your profile please consider adding one to make our lives easier. I am currently only approving new members with a photo.
