What we're about
☯ WELCOME TO LUSH which offers day-time and evening events ☯
Lush ensures that you feel included, welcomed and valued, particularly when you attend your first meet up event. Lush also ensures that all members are respectful of others at all times. Lush aims to offer something 'just that little bit different' for people who enjoy 'the arts', travel and culture as well as the countryside. The majority of our members are aged 45 + but younger people (18+) are still very welcome to join. Lush is LGBT-friendly.
Lush offers; theatre, museums, galleries, art-house cinema, crafts and vintage. Lush also regularly posts up breakfast events, restaurants, (dog-friendly) walks and days out, and regular mid-week day-time events. We also organise European breaks (e.g. Madrid, Berlin, Rome, Copenhagen, St Petersberg, Romania) and international holidays (e.g. Hong Kong and Thailand). You can contribute to the site and add, or propose, your events near you. Events on this site cover Liverpool, Crosby, Southport, the Wirral, Manchester and North Wales. There is a nominal annual fee of £2.00, payable when you first attend, to cover the yearly fee charged by the meetup organisation for the use of their website and to contribute towards the time taken to the organise the group.
A 'NO SHOW' IS COUNTED IF PEOPLE FAIL TO SHOW UP AT AN EVENT AND/OR FAIL TO UN-RSVP BY 9.00 PM THE NIGHT BEFORE. THREE 'NO SHOWS' WILL LEAD TO BEING REMOVED FROM THE SITE. THIS POLICY IS IN PLACE TO ENSURE THAT LUSH MEMBERS CAN ATTEND EVENTS WITH THE FULL CONFIDENCE THAT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE EXPECTED WILL TURN UP. All meetups take a strong position on 'no shows' which cause extreme difficulty with respect to walks and events requiring booking and reservations - and also denies people on the waiting list an opportunity to attend. Members who have been inactive for more than 9 months will be automatically removed but are able to re-join at any point.
Finally - Lush has a 'zero tolerance' approach to inappropriate or impolite behaviour. Lush has very lovely and warm-hearted members and any unpleasant, hostile or discourteous behaviour (including disrepectful postings and comments) will result in immediate removal from Lush. Thankfully such behaviour is extremely rare however when this does happen it greatly spoils the enjoyment of the group for everyone and compromises the philosophy of Lush. While people may, on rare occasions, wish to raise concerns, it is expected that people act respectfully, constructively, and with dignity at all times. Event hosts generously give up considerable time to organise events for the pleasure of others - so please be nice - and please be kind!! :-)
All the very best and hope to see you soon!! Susan
