What we're about
Thank you for taking a look at our Group. We have been going for nearly 4 years now and we differ from a lot of other Meetup groups in that our ethos is all about making friends and enjoying activities together. For that reason, we limit our membership to around 70 Members so that everybody in the group is an 'active' member.
We normally meet 2 Saturday mornings and one evening a month to discuss what we would like to do at future events, and we now have a really varied selection of things to choose from, which is added to weekly. Nobody is expected to come to everything - that's not realistic - but the more events you can come to, the better.
As our members come from Pershore, Redditch, Tewkesbury and Evesham we put events on in these areas so there is always some where new to go, and we try to encourage members to 'host' events, although this isn't as daunting as you might think - (not much more than a head-count really) and we are always happy to do that for you if you don't want to!
Anybody who is 45 or over is very welcome. If you feel this group is for you, please join us, and start visiting places that just aren't any fun on your own, with your new friends. We look forward to meeting you soon.
At our first AGM in 2015 it was decided that all members must put a photo of themselves on the site, together with your first and surnames on your profile - this is a closed group, so non members will not be able to see names or photos. If you have a strong objection to putting your full surname on, an initial may be acceptable under certain circumstances. Without both of these, you will be asked to add them before joining.
You may also like to know that we all pay a £10 subs fee annually – payable after your second visit where you can decide if the Group is for you or not. Members that don't attend meetings for a period of 2 months or more will be taken off the active list but can re-join (space permitting) at a later date if they find they have more time to devote to the Group. More details can be found on the website Message Board.
And finally... All activities are undertaken at the Member's risk. No responsibility will be accepted by the Group or it's Members for mishaps of any kind!
