This is an amazing Meet Up group for people 40+ with a range of activities both daytime and evening.
Liz and the team of event hosts offer varied activities including dinners, live music events, cinema, theatre, coffee mornings/afternoons, lunches, social walks, Ascot Days and our popular Chill Out Fridays (some of these events are currently on hold due to Covid19). We work as a team and will consider new event suggestions from all members. Please read our testimonials to gain some insight into our group.
To join our group you will need to do the following.
1. An appropriate/recent, profile photo and your full name are required to join.
2 This is NOW A MEMBERSHIP ONLY GROUP with an ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION @ £8. Your membership offers you both online and in person events as well as an introduction to potential friendships.
NEW MEMBERS - The annual membership fee of £8 is due within one week of accessing our New members On-line event. You are unable to RSVP for an in person event until your £8 annual membership has been paid, as numbers are limited. If you wish to join before our next new members meeting book a call with Liz Hartley. The bank details for your annual membership is:
Account Name : Elizabeth Hartley Account No: 53703142 Sort Code: 20-17-92.
On joining please confirm that you have paid and read/agree with our 'About Us' section. Thank you.
ESTABLISHED MEMBERS - Your annual subscription this year covers a 15 month period as we have been unable to meet during lockdown (Covid19).
If you decide that we are no longer the group for you, or that Meetup is no longer the way for you to socialise, we do understand. We ask that you become a paid up member or remove yourself from the group. We will remove unpaid members on a monthly basis to open up space for another member as membership will soon be capped. You will be most welcome to re-apply subject to spaces. We wish you well if you decide to leave the group and look forward to seeing you if you decide to stay.
3 We do take photos at events, we will assume that you are happy to appear in photos unless you advise Liz Hartley in writing at point of joining. The 'About Us' clearly states that you are opting into being photographed until you advise us that you are opting out.
4 If an event you wish to attend is full do go on the waitlist, we always do our best to open waitlists.
5 As members of the group it is for you to arrange transport to and from events. If you car share this is your decision and responsibility.
6 For events that require a payment this is to be paid direct to the venue prior to signing up for the event. At the time of your RSVP please confirm you have paid the venue direct with a payment date. We will now remove non paid members from paid events as places are limited. If you are unable to attend after payment you will have the option to offer your place to the next person on the wait list, subject to there being a waitlist or you can contact the venue direct (best check their refund policy prior to payments). The organisers of this MeetUp are not responsible for refunds unless an event is cancelled via this group.
7 The main organiser Liz Hartley reserves the right to refuse or withdraw membership where it is considered that membership is either inappropriate or detrimental to the values of the group.
8 Our events going forward will be a mixture of virtual and in person (currently max 6 people for in person events).
9 If you RSVP to attend a meet up and find that you are unable to attend please change your RSVP to not going in a timely manner. We do ask that you update your RSVP in good time to 'NO' if you are unable to attend. This is essential in order for your event host to know who is attending and for other members to attend who may be on a wait list. Unfortunately, NO shows and last-minute RSVP changes can impact on other members. If a member has 3 no shows or regular last minute changes to their RSVP we will ask you to only RSVP for virtual events as we view this as basic good manners.
Once a member ...
Enjoy our group and make new friends along the way.
Liz Hartley's attentive, and caring hosting towards me at many events has to be honestly the only reason I have managed to stay in this social group. l am very shy socially, and am prone to social anxiousness. Liz's warm welcoming of me across events has really made a difference in feeling included. I have felt totally supported, introduced to others, and felt genuinely looked after by her hosting skills across settings. Liz's passion as main organiser has really made a difference. I feel she is an excellent host, passionate organiser, and has the energy, and enthusiasm needed to maintain our group at the awesome level. KS
Absolutely brilliant night totally epitomised what I love about this group fun, friendship and variety xx
Chill Out Fridays
You created such a relaxed atmosphere when you arranged the one in Faversham! Your Friday evenings are great, relaxed and just people out for a good chat and a catch up. My friend loved the one she came to.
You made me welcome and it was lovely seeing you all again and great company
What an amazing New Years Eve, thanks Liz loved it xx💃🕺 Thank you Liz for putting it on and hope they raised lots of money for Save the children. Xxx
We hope you enjoy our group as much as we do, our aim is to provide a happy inclusive environment for all.
