What we're about
We are a friendly bunch of fabulous fifties who think we are still tremendous twenties!! We are planning on growing old disgracefully.... Not for us tea dances, tv and bingo! Dining out, theatre, cinema, walking, live music, comedy events, days and weekends away are much more our scene...
The majority of our events are in the Deal/Canterbury/Thanet area ( with a few in further flung places) so in order to encourage an active group, these are the areas we hope to serve, and would encourage membership from. Also although the group is open to all, typically our demographic is of single/divorced/widowed people, but it should be stressed that it is a friendship group, not a dating site!!
Come and join us if you feel you are on the same page, and would be an active participant who enjoys having fun with like-minded people!
Just a few boring, housekeeping notes...Firstly, Meetup charges... The umbrella group charges £150 per year for us to use its platform. Therefore we charge £3 to each member, bi-annually, in order to cover these costs. Failure to pay this small charge will mean expulsion from the group. Further to this, and to ensure an active membership, we do revise our membership lists twice a year... should you have not found anything of interest in our events in the preceding three months, we will assume that this isn’t the group for you, and will act accordingly. Secondly, should you RSVP to one of our great meet-up events and then find you cannot attend, no problem at all, life happens, but PLEASE be courteous and remember to change your RSVP to 'no'!! Incorrect RSVP lists confuse us poor organisers, and more importantly can prevent other members attending. Should a no-show without any contact be noted, we regretfully reserve the right to delete membership without prior warning. Also, once tickets are purchased from a venue, refunds are only available through you contacting the venue itself. We are all volunteers and therefore, all activities are undertaken entirely at the participants risk.
We don't accept membership requests from people who a) live outside of the Deal/Sandwich/Thanet/Canterbury area or b) belong to more than 10 groups... we imagine you have enough on your plate, and we like to encourage an active membership with high attendance records. Our members like to know who to look out for at meetings, so could we respectfully request that you use a profile pic of yourself rather than a pet/random view/quotation... !! We are unable to accept potential members who cannot comply with this request.
