Kent Socialites (KS) is one of the most active meetup groups in Kent. If you are looking to widen your circle of friends, meet new people and participate in diverse and many affordable activities in Kent, then KS is for you.
Events include walks, night outs, day / weekend trips to Europe, comedy nights, live music, competitions, arts and more. We even have the occasional fancy dress event and pub crawl. You are sure to find something of interest ... if not, then why not suggest one? Members are encouraged to host their own events and some family events are sometimes added.
We rarely cancel an event; maybe less than a handful in 2 years. We certainly don't cancel an event for uneconomic reasons or if the event isn't attracting many rsvps. The organisers are a dedicated group and when an event is published, they really want to attend it.
The group is very friendly and is aimed at the 40s - 50s age group, but younger and older members are more than welcome..Whilst we are not a Singles or Dating site, it would be good to have more gender balanced events. All we ask is that you are not a compete 'plank', or a moaning Minnie. Remember KS is a SOCIAL GROUP, not a dating site.
SOME RULES: The group is fairly relaxed ... with few rules, however we do insist your profile includes a clear photo of yourself and that you live in Kent. A clear photo is for the safety of all members. Additionally it is essential that Event Organisers and other members are able to recognise you when you attend events. It is important that members live in Kent to keep the group active and member driven, not relying on a small number of local organisers. Non-Kent dwellers are most welcome to attend events as guests of members whom they know.
We reserve the right to refuse membership where we consider that membership may be to the detriment of the values of Kent Socialites.
We also reserve the right to withdraw membership if any member has 3 'No shows' where they have not turned up for events and not given sufficient notice of cancellation to the event host. We reserve this right even if that member has paid their KS fees. No shows are inconsiderate towards the other members as they waste everyone's time when a whole group could be kept waiting for someone who hasn't changed their rsvp.
We reserve the right to withdraw membership if Membership Fees have not been paid.
We reserve the right to withdraw membership from financial members who have not attended at least one event in a 3 month period. This is to ensure the membership remains active.
FEES: The membership fee is only £5 per annum and covers the Meetup fees and expenses of running the club. All remaining monies raised are donated to a charity chosen by the KS members. KS has donated over £5,000 to charities in the past 2.5 years.
