A warm welcome!

If you've been on your own for a while, a new comer to a town, bored or got into place where nothing new is happening then I'm hoping this group will offer a solution. Our goal is to host events that will create fun times, explore new places, find the best locations for both fine and budget meals and leave you with good memories. I'd like to organise meetings that suit all age groups and relish members suggestions regarding venues & events. We don't take things too seriously, so if you've never done some of our activities before, don't let that put you off having a go. A lot of us are trying new experiences together, so let's laugh at our mistakes and have some fun.

This is a friendship group rather than a dating group and most members join for uncomplicated laughs without pressure. Please bear this in mind with how you approach other members

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN YOU RSVP TO ANY OF OUR EVENTS YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH AND SAFETY, YOUR ABILITY TO TAKE PART IN THE EVENT AND TAKING CARE OF YOUR OWN BELONGINGS. BY SIGNING UP FOR AN EVENT YOU ACCEPT GOSPORT & FAREHAM GOOD TIMES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES, DAMAGE OR LOSSES ON ANY OF OUR EVENTS.

Only basic things I ask is that you -

1) Try your best to attend events you've signed up for or let me know that you can't make it in advance.

2) Pay deposits or costs for events promptly as my bookings will depend on this.

3} Respect other members feelings and boundaries.

4} Are 18+ and able to take part in events you sign up for without effecting your health.

5} Pay your meetup fee of 50p or any other associated fee for each event - without this, the cost for running this group and site can't be covered. Our organisers are entitled to use 50% of collected fees towards their expenses this typically equates to organisers receiving 0.25p per member per Meetup. We feel this is not unreasonable and equates to a beverage and something towards their travel costs.

Upcoming events (5+)

Coffee/Breakfast @ The Bayside Cabin

Weather permitting.bring your picnic and drink and a chair if you have a out door game bring that lets play a game or two and enjoy bank holiday. We can go for a drink after in the local pub :)

The Sailmaker Quiz - £2 entry includes free Nachos per team

We haven't been here for a while but I think a few quizzers may be interested in this so let's give it a go.... Looks like an earlier finish than our Thursday quiz so may suit some folks better. Entry is £2 but the teams get free nachos during the evening and the prize pot is £50 (split between the top teams) which means the winners prize should be quite substantial. But win or lose it will be fun! Quiz starts at 8pm but arrive 7.45pm so we can organise ourselves and have a chat. The Sailmaker do a reasonably priced carvery if you want to eat - arrive earlier to enjoy that before the quiz. There is also a 50p Meetup fee to help support the club on the night. If you attend the Monday Coffee morning with our group then this fee is not required
