What we're about
Please note: Though this group has been in existence prior to me becoming the Organizer, it is now considered a 'new group' therefore these guidelines apply as from 4 September 2018.
This is a social group creating amazing memories in a community spirit.
It is all about good conversations, laughter and friendships.
At present we meet for weekly dinners but members suggestions are welcomed and will be considered.
The best way to meet other people from the group and make new friends is by attending, so to keep the group vibrant and interesting, and for you to benefit from membership I ask that you participate actively and regularly.
The current composition of the group is single people over 45 years of age.
Your request for membership should include a current photo and your first name and surname initial. This helps with managing member interactions online and to recognize people at events.
I request that you attend an event within your first month of joining. If you have not attended any events within a 3 month period (December 2018) you will be considered inactive, contacted and let go from the group if you do not respond. This ensures the membership is made up of ‘real’ people. You are welcome to re-join and I hope you do and will then become an active member. This also applies for members who joined prior to 4 September 2018.
If you find that you will be absent for more than 3 months (either medical, extended holiday or personal reasons) please let me know so I don't inadvertently remove you from the group.
If you RSVP 'Yes' please ensure you do attend. If you cannot longer make it, where possible I ask that you change your RSVP to 'No' at least 48 hours prior to the event so adequate notice is given to someone on the 'Wait List' who wishes to attend. This will also ensure we have fairly accurate numbers when confirming bookings which will be appreciated by venues giving us the opportunity to go back to them. If you are on the 'Wait List' for an event and ultimately decide not to attend, please change your status to 'Not Going' to enable another member to join us.
If you are interested in becoming a host or there’s an activity/event you are interested in please let me know.
Feel free to contact me by private message if you have any initial questions.
I look forward to welcoming you soon.
All groups have a fee to Meetup.com which is payable every 6 months.
From January 2019 I will be collecting a 'gold coin' donation per member/per event until the Meetup fee is covered.
