What we're about
*********** Please read before requesting to join our group **********
Hi, welcome to the group, we are open to any adults who want to socialise and make new friends!
We have introduced an annual membership fee to cover the costs of the MeetUp fees, which at the moment stands at £5.00. Depending on the number of members, this may cover more than one year. This is payable when you request to join the group and on the annual anniversary of you joining! If you have previously requested to join but have not been accepted, it is because you didn't pay the fee!
Please pay via PayPal to the following account: Lesley.firstname.lastname@example.org, please make sure the payment category is 'Family and Friends' to ensure a fee is not deducted from your payment and message Lesley to notify her that you have paid. You do not need a PayPal account, just sign in as a guest, once you have paid, your request to join the group will be approved.
We have walks, day trips, festivals, camping, nights out and meals to name just a few of our activities.
Unfortunately we have had to create some basic rules to help run the group smoothly so please read the following:-
Please make sure you have a profile picture that shows your face clearly, no sunglasses or special filters. If not, you will be removed from the group or your request will be declined. Please also ensure your name is clearly displayed, and also quote this when you make your membership payment.
There isn't a priority system here, new or regular members are treated equally and fairly.
Can't go? Don't be a no show 😠. Please change your RSVP if you can't make it.
Some venues and events are limited due to the type of event and space of the venue. Therefore if an event is full you WILL be added to the wait list. You will automatically be moved to 'going' to the event if someone changes their RSVP. If you are on an event or are on the wait list you MUST still change your RSVP if you are unable to make it.
If a member has 2 no shows without cancelling their place they will be removed from the group in the spirit of respect and fairness to others. There have been a number of people booking on events and not turning up, it's infuriating for those who miss out and also to the hosts who spend a lot of time planning and organising these events for YOU. Please show good manners and change your RSVP 👍.
Please be courteous and respectful to each other.
Not everything will go to plan all the time so please be patient and don't be judgemental of others.
Constructive criticism is acceptable and if anyone has any suggestions for things they would like to do or how to make our group better please feel free to ask to create an event and you will be made an event host.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEEEEEZ check the discussion board and event page regularly, things often change and you may miss out if you don't check. It is in your best interest and will help if you set your notifications to accept messages and emails.
If any member has an issue they can contact Lesley or Ian in full confidence through the meet up messaging service.
When you join our group you accept that you come onto our events at your OWN RISK and any host or organiser cannot be held responsible or liable for your safety or the safety of your possessions. If you do not agree, 🤔 then don't join.
Remember safety, on the whole, is the individual members responsibility 👍.
Please enjoy our group 😊 We look forward to meeting you.
Lesley and Ian x
