I'm Lorna and I'm the organiser of the group along with my fantastic friend Lucy. Lucy and I actually met through Meetup a few years ago! This group is for all girls, whether you're a girly girl or a not-so girly girl who like to get together and have some fun! Whether you are new in town or just want to expand your social circle and get out to do some new things, this is the group for you!
This group is the new version of Edinburgh Girls for Good Times, my group which has been active since June 2014.
My favourite types of meetups have been drinks and dinners, brunches, cinema and bowling trips, so that's the kind of thing I intend to plan. If you've got other ideas please do suggest them, or if you want to host one yourself - get in touch!
I do have a couple of rules that are fairly standard across all meetups: 1) that you give enough notice if you can't make it - preferably 24 hours or more so someone could take your spot and I can let the venue know how many to expect 2) I charge £1 per person per meetup that you attend. The Meetup organisation charge me over £130 every year (yes that much!!) to have this group on their site so I need to charge member fees to try and recoup the cash!
Bit about me...
I've lived in Edinburgh for almost 10 years and joined Meetup a about 5 years ago - I made loads of great friends and met some awesome people. Unfortunately Edinburgh is one of those transient places which means that after a year or two, a lot of those friends have moved on, so Meetup is a really awesome way to keep meeting new people!
Hopefully you will make some lovely friends through this group!
