LIT is a bit of everything for everyone and a great way to meet new people and make new friends. We are currently getting up and running but with the goal of offering an eclectic mix of groups to suit everyone's tastes, in and around Liverpool.
From relaxed chats over coffee, to visiting exhibitions and museums, events in around Liverpool like 'Africa Oye' & 'Brazilica', Fandom/geek meetings, Arts & Crafts, Film/Cinema groups, a monthly Book Club, Nights out, Days Away, plus many more to come. If there is something you would like to see up, know of any hidden gems or have any suggestions, my 'door' is always open and always happy to hear from you :)
I know how daunting it can be attending your first meetup but we as a group are here to help. Whether you would like me or the event host to meet you before hand or even bring along a friend to ease your nerves, whatever is easier for you. Plus we are a friendly bunch :)
Take a look through 'our calender' of activities/events on the LIT site... you can browse through the months ahead as some meet-ups/events are posted in advance.
Please try to use a current photo of yourself for your profile as that way it makes it much easier to recognise you when you attend.
There is also a yearly £2 membership fee which is to be payable when you first join LIT. This can be paid in cash to myself at your first meet or via paypal (there will be an option to pay through the home page shortly)
When you have rsvp'd yes...keep in touch with your Meetup by following the conversations and messages on the event page. This may include information for any changes in time's, locations, rsvp's etc...particularly on the day of the meet-up as things can change.
If you RSVP to a meeting and find that you cannot attend then please change your RSVP to 'No', that way it notifies the event host. Please try to give as much notice as possible that way if there is a wait list, your place can be offered to someone else. You don't have to RSVP 'No' to groups you aren't interested in attending.
If you become inactive I.e...you have not attended a meetup for over 6 months..you may be deleted from the group. Also RSVP'ing that you are attendinga Meetup and then not turning up with no notification to the event host or changing your RSVP to 'No' (known as NO SHOWS) on a continuous/regular basis may result in you being deleted from the group.
And finally I'd just like to say that we are an all-encompassing group for people from all walks of life, LGBTQ friendly, and do no tolerate and form of discrimination or inappropriate behaviour.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or queries, or just to say hello :)
