What we're about

Welcome to the Mad Hatters, a social and outdoors activities group for grown ups. Its all in the name. If you like the outdoors, fun and laughter, and a mixed bag of activities then this is the Group for you.

The Fun Bit...

Based in and around Glasgow we're a group of friendly, whimsical types. Like the Mad Hatter himself we can be loud and eccentric, but also rather charming. Where we are most alike though is in the fact that we are never, ever, complimented on our singing.

The group is run for and by the members, it's not just for the hosts. We're a group of like minded people that love getting out and about socialising. We've learned that life is too short to take seriously, and who can be bothered with all the drama anyway. So with some fun and laughter along the way and a mix of members just like Alice in Wonderland then we have the perfect characters to ensure that the group continues to be a success.

We're a varied mix of members, some are long term residents, some are relatively new to Glasgow or Scotland and some are just after a change of lifestyle. What we all have in common is that we love getting out and about, either in the great outdoors or socialising, and meeting new people. We've all made new friends in the group, and we'd like to ensure that every member does the same. So suggestions are always welcome either through the group on Meetup or on the Mad Hatters Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/618240678338257/) page. If you fancy doing something let us know, however crazy you think it might be.

So, your hosts would like to welcome you to our events, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do and if you enjoy your experiences with Mad Hatters we only ask that you spread the word that the Mad Hatters are here to stay .... :-P

For those who enjoy their social media experience, you can find us on Facebook too under groups: Mad Hatters Walks and Adventures (https://www.facebook.com/groups/618240678338257/).

The Boring Bit...

We're all adults here, or big kids at heart, and you should all know your limits by now. Members are responsible for their own safety and the hosts & organisers of Mad Hatters accept no liability for any mishaps, accidents, or injuries that may occur. Your hosts will try and look after you as best they can, but the unexpected can always happen. The outdoors can be an unforgiving place and responsibility for your safety ultimately lies with you.

For further information about outdoor safety with Mad Hatters and a couple of membership rules please read our Group Pages (https://www.meetup.com/Mad-Hatters-for-all-things-fun/about/).
