What we're about

This is an amazing Meet Up group for people 40+ with a range of activities both daytime and evening.

Liz and the team of volunteer event hosts would like to offer you a very warm welcome to our group. This is the group for you if you want to live life to the full, having a fun time, doing what you love. If you become an active member you will naturally make good friends along the way.

Events include social walks, dinner parties, dancing, theatre, cinema, cultural events, live music, days out, mindfulness, coffee mornings/afternoons and our popular 'Chill Out Fridays'. New suggestions from members are always welcome.

We don't have much by the way of rules other than:

1 An appropriate, individual, profile photo to join. We do take photographs at our events, we will assume that you are happy for your photograph to be taken unless you advise Liz Hartley that you would like to opt-out on joining.

2 We ask that anyone new to our group attends a new member's meeting to meet the organiser/s and to discuss how we work as a meetup group. We offer new members meetings both daytime and evening.

3 We do ask you to update your RSVP in good time to 'NO' if you are unable to attend. Unfortunately, NO shows and last-minute RSVP changes can impact on other members. If a member has 3 no shows we will ask you to leave the group as we view this as basic good manners.

4 We reserve the right to refuse membership where we consider that membership may be detrimental to the values of the group and to withdraw membership for the same reason.

5 Our policy is that new members are unable to sign up for 'home-based events' until the organiser has met you at a public event and that you have been an active member of our group for a minimum of 6 months (unless otherwise agreed by Elizabeth Hartley, Main Organiser). We look forward to getting to know our new members initially at some of our open events.

6 As adults and members of this group you are fully responsible for any decisions you make while at an event or on route to an event (car-sharing etc). If people wish to car share please be advised that this is at their own responsibility and arrangement. This group is not responsible for your decision making in connection with events in this group.

Please confirm that you have read our "About Us' and agree with the group agreements.

Your surname is required unless there is specific reason not to share your surname on a public site. We fully respect if that is the case but ask that you private message Elizabeth Hartley, main organiser to discuss and share privately. It is always a requirement.


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 organizer, 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
