This group was created to help facilitate people to get together. Especially people that like to get involved in outdoor activities such as picnics, festivals and great social events, for example live music and car shows in Hertfordshire. This group is not run as a business and not a professional events company.
It is free to join the group, but we may charge for certain activities and events to cover the cost of running them and to recover overheads. Meetup.com is based in the US and charges the Main Organiser $100 every six months or $200 per year + 20% US Tax https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001620472-Organizer-subscription-pricing . To recover these costs, I request a small donation towards running this group. It can either be a small amount every six months or a larger donation to cover the year. You can either pay me cash when you see me or use link - make a donation (https://www.paypal.me/JohnEllingham)
Please note that all members take part in the group activities solely at their own risk should any personal loss or accident occur during an event. The emphasis is on organising a relaxed and friendly meet up with like minded people, often with helpful contributions from members. The Events hosts and organisers are not liable for any accidents or injuries, however caused. If you disagree with this statement then please remove yourself from this group.
A small number of events do require tickets to be purchased, if at all possible, the event organiser will ask you to buy them direct from the venue. Sometimes this isn't possible, especially if the group needs to be seated together. The host or organiser may then ask for payment to their personal paypal or bank account. Unfortunately some venues require non-refundable deposits and these transactions are between you and the Event host and any disputes need to be resolved between yourselves. The organiser is not liable for any cash transactions or disagreements between members and event hosts.
Some events may need to be cancelled or rearranged at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances like poor weather conditions or the host becoming unwell, etc. The organiser or hosts are not liable for any out of pocket expenses involved, for example the cost involved in getting to and from the venue.
Meetup.com Annual charge and donations
