We are a social group, open to most social activities. The group is for everyone, new to the town or who have lived here for years, but most of all for those who enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. There are no age restrictions (everyone is welcome) but the majority of people attending our Meetups are over 40.
There's much to do in March, from checking out its pubs, restaurants and cafes, to enjoying exhibitions, dinner, dancing, chatting over coffee, attending events, or going for walks. Members can post their own Meetups for these and other things they plan to do, and thus have ready-made companions to accompany them!
We’re welcoming and friendly, and open to all ages. Male or female, single or married. If this sounds at all tempting please sign up - it’s free. We simply expect a recent, clear photo (so event hosts can spot and welcome you) and up to date RSVP’s. We hope to see you soon!
COST There is no membership fee to join and most of our events are free.
CODE OF CONDUCT / BEHAVIOUR I expect everybody to treat others with respect. I will remove any member showing inappropriate or antisocial behaviour. The group is also private, which means non-members cannot see who is a member - so you should feel safe joining us.
AGE RANGE Our group is for all people of working age, we have members in their early 20s through to people in their 50's or 60's. We try to arrange events to suits everybody.
THIS IS NOT A SINGLES OR DATING GROUP
This group's prime aim is to organise fun activities for people to enjoy and to enable people to socialise together. Most of our members tend to be single but we also have many couples within the group too. My main aim is to create a community of people who support each other !
JOINING THE GROUP Anybody who complies with the above can apply to join the group.
ATTENDANCE We recommend that you try to come along within the first 6 weeks of joining. If your shy or reluctant for whatever reason, contact me or another one of our event hosts and we'll help you take that first step.
Be aware that I actively manage our members list and do remove inactive members - this is to keep our membership count real. You will always be able to re-join at another time.
PREREQUISITES We do require all members to have a profile photo of themselves for identification purposes. If you submit a photo or picture of anything/anyone else but yourlself, your request to join will be declined. This is important for the hosts as they need to know who is coming to the events, but it also increases the trust and security within the group - which is very important to us.
CONTRIBUTING TO THE GROUP We have a dedicated group of organisers within March Friends but are always looking to encourage new organisers/hosts to join the leadership team. Members can also add single events as suggestions If there's an event going on somewhere and you'd like company - then add it as a suggestion on the site or tell one of the group event organisers about it. The involvement of members helps the group continue to grow and offer a large range of events to suit all.
