What we're about
Who's the boss in your house? Has the sofa taken over?
Show it who's in charge and organise a trip out with new friends that will suit you.
This is a not-for-profit group about doing what you want to do with your free time and finding others to share those times with.
We started life as a walking group called Huntingdon Single File, which ran for two years and has now been closed down, so you can expect walks to be frequently published. Take a look at the HSF site below for pictures of the walks we did over those two years.
Unlike Huntingdon Single File our members (known as Escapees) arrange other kinds of events as well.
We have had visits to food festivals, trips to nurseries, evening meals out, coffee mornings, brunches.
We like photography too!
We've arranged trips away for the weekend to the Lake District, and are planning ahead for one in Edinburgh.
We've even been up in a light aircraft.
Future plans include Antiques and Craft fairs, day trips to Safari parks, movie nights out and other good clean fun.
The aim of the group is to encourage a community spirit too and so far the group has come together to help one member to move house and another to weed her garden.
We arrange all activities for free and any Escapee can suggest an event and, if enough people want to go (it only takes one other), they can organise and host it.
Please note that we do expect you to participate if you join our community. Everybody should RSVP yes to at least 4 meet ups a year, attend at least 3 meet ups a year and host at least 1 meet up a year. Hosting need only involve being at one of our regular coffee mornings and welcoming new and old members. More than one host at an event is allowed, even encouraged, after all, what is the point of this group if only one person turns up to an event?
We also ask is that you are kind to others in the group and show them respect, and that you understand that this is not a commercial enterprise and you are responsible for your own well-being when out and about doing activities with the people you've met through this group.
The site costs $144 a year to run currently which at current exchange rates is about £95. If you are a business (pub or restaurant for example) then feel free to contact Alison about sponsorship opportunities.
I'm looking for 10 sponsors to contribute just £10 each and in return we promise to use your venue for some of our planned meet ups during the year.
