Thought i'd put this at the beginning as so many were missing this vital information and many are wanting to join without a PHOTO of themselves. It's only fair that everyone has an up to date photo of themselves, not a photo of your back, a puppet, a rose, a chandelier, a beach, or you with a group of other people etc. This is an essential requirement in order to be approved to join this group, if this is not adhered to you will be automatically declined, as we would all love to recognize individuals who are joining us on our meetups. Please also use your real name, thanks for understanding, apologies for any inconvenience caused in advance, look forward to meeting you all. Oh also please complete the introduction form in more then 6 words, in order for me to have an idea of your interests thank x
NOW ABOUT THE MEETUP
This is a group for both ladies and gentlemen, singles and couples who are currently finding it frustrating like myself to find exciting like minded individuals to go out with during the day or evening, within the south and other areas of London too. Do you have different interests to your friends, has your best friends moved away, friends are married, have a young family, or are you new in London? If so this is the group for you. The events will take place whenever i find something exciting to attend, please feel free to join us, the group is for positive individuals who want to do something new for a change with like minded fun people. For example Burlesques Shows, 1920's, 30's, 40's 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's events, Jive/Swing Dancing, Line Dancing, Afro Beats, Salsa, River Dancing Shows, Comedy Shows, Pop Up Events, Food Festivals, Street Food Markets, Theater, Cinema, Opera, Celebrating other people's cultures ,Dinners, Lunch, Picnics, Weekends away, Holidays, Spas and lots more, if anyone has a suggestion for an event please feel free to share with the group.
If you have an idea for an event please share with me and will see what i can do, all suggestion are appreciated. Additionally if you would like to host an event please feel free to do so, you must have attended at least 5 meetups, must be a VIP MEMBER so that other members can get a better understanding of who you are as a person.
There will be small membership fee of £10 to be paid annually this helps towards the running cost of the meetups, which includes planning, researching, sourcing, admin and meetup site charges. Each member will become a VIP MEMBER once payment has been received.
First time members attending their first meetup with us will be free, this is for you to get a feel of the group and see whether this is a group that is right for you, however if you chose not to become a VIP Member after attending your first meetup each meetup event you attend,there will be a fee of £2.50 charge which needs to be paid before each meetup via Paypal or my bank account. If you are bringing friends/guests to the meetup they too will need to pay £2.50 each meetup, also to be paid before they attend a meetup.
Please be aware VIP MEMBERS will have priority on all events first, so if they are waiting in a spot to attend an event and a NON VIP MEMBER has RSVP YES apologies in advance i will have to RSVP your YES to a NO, hope you understand, we just need to be fair to regular members who have paid their yearly membership fee of just £10 to attend unlimited events throughout the year, £2.50 allows you to visit just 4 events in one year, what can i say.
After one year of starting this group with over 100 events, as from the 28th of May 2016 there is now a small annual charge of £10 for membership fees which goes towards admin, This tends to make members truly value this group. It also helps weed out individuals who aren't really interested in participating.
Once payment is received you will become a VIP Member and will be able to attend unlimited events or you can pay £2.50 per meetup, this fee also apply if bringing a friend, this must be paid before attending the meetups on the day thanks xx
*PLEASE NOTE 'NO SHOWS' WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!* If you RSVP 'Yes' and do not turn up without RSVP NO you will be removed immediately from this group! Apologies if this sounds harsh but please understand that Organizers put a lot of time and work into planning events and it's very frustrating when members don't bother to show up at all, i do hope you understand -Thank you!
