• Our Group is Closing. Details and refund information

    THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT RECEIVE ORGANISERS MESSAGES, DON'T HAVE A PROFILE ON HERE (GUESTS) OR REGULAR ACCESS TO AN INTERNET ENABLED DEVICE. IF YOU KNOW ANYONE LIKE THIS AND HAVE ANY WAY OF CONTACTING THEM PLEASE RELAY THIS MESSAGE ONTO THEM Hi all The Coronavirus has forced me into a difficult decision. As Meetup is heavily focused around arranging social gatherings, the current lockdown and no doubt a few weeks/months afterwards, have made the Meetup site something of a useless platform for us. My membership is due to renew on 1st April so now and it seems that closing it and moving over to arranging things over Facebook, is a sensible thing to do. If I close now I can offer all paid members a full refund. More about that further down. Although this may seem like a big change to a lot of people I can assure you that Gosport and Fareham Good Times will continue on our Facebook page. You will simply need to create a Facebook account (if you don't already have one) and request to join. Our group page is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/gosportandfareham/­ I've chosen Facebook moving forward as many of you have it, there are many members of our group there already, it works across all devices, has a decent messaging service, has many features missing on Meetup, can be used to post events and is absolutely free. Whatsapp may also be used for communications in the future but Facebook will be our main tool for reaching members. There will be no further events posted for this Meetup group. It will cease to exist on 1st April. If you have any memories you want to share or thank the organisers/hosts for their efforts then please post here: https://www.meetup.com/Gosport-Fareham-Good-Times/messages/boards/thread/52744422/#[masked]­ I'm personally mentally scarred by sinking an 8 berth canal boat on our holiday a few years back! REFUNDS I am able to offer all paid members a £10 refund. I've had a few messages about keeping it or donating it to charity. To be honest I've never been a huge fan of the admin side of things, so please take it and use it for whatever you like - I would rather clear things up. I am on 12 week isolation so to get it quickly then I would prefer to do a bank transfer (will need sort code and account number) or PayPal, where I will need the email address associated with your PayPal account.. People who specifically want cash will need to wait until after my isolation period and arrange something with me by text [masked]) PAID MEMBERS LIST IS HERE: https://www.meetup.com/Gosport-Fareham-Good-Times/messages/boards/thread/52605968­ THANK YOU To all the organisers and hosts who went out of their way to share their ideas and make this group what it is. To all our member who took a leap of faith and joined us on our events, gave us wonderful feedback and inspired us to carry on. From our humble beginnings in September 2015, where often it would just be 2 or 3 people, through the boom times when we were getting 200+ unique members monthly on our events to now, where only a global pandemic and national emergency could stop us. From me personally - thanks for tolerating my inappropriate comments/jokes, erratic behaviour, general immaturity and flexible use of the English language. *Salutes all the members while Land of Hope and Glory plays* It's been emotional Mark *THIS ORGANISER WILL SELF DESTRUCT IN 7 DAYS*
