What we're about

Hello and welcome to Mid Kent Social.

We are a broad-based social group, NOT A DATING SITE, for those of age 50+ whose members generally live in the Maidstone & Medway areas – but that’s not a prerequisite for joining! However, it is our area of interest for our events though we do plan visits & walks further afield where car sharing and contributions to costs are expected to be fair to the drivers.

You can now join and attend one meet up within the first month before paying the membership fee to see what we are doing and the things we have already done. This is for just one month on first application only and to remain on site our £5 joining is required. This also counts as your subscription to 31st August in the same year. Profiles of those who have not paid after a month will be removed.

MKS is for all those who want to get out and make friends, and join in events which you may not get to hear about otherwise. So no staying indoors staring at four walls! Now you can enjoy a variety of events, safely and unpressured, in the company of like-minded people.

Our events range from short walks around a town centre or River with coffee and cake after, through long country rambles, to theatre and cinema occasions, quiz nights, comedy clubs, live music – even a cabaret night at a wine bar with ‘Champagne Charlie’!

Most events are entirely free of charge, although others may incur entrance and/or travel costs. Where deposits/payments are needed for events, this will be clearly stated in the event listing.

The organisers are always happy to hear suggestions for potential future events from members and any who wish to join our team of organisers to host these events.

Our Membership Fee is renewable 1st September annually. You can re-join if removed but payment would be required for 2nd approval. Fees can be collected at the first outing but its preferred by online payment should you wish to continue. You can also bring guests (+1’s) to some events at a cost of £3 each attendance, or, for a little more, they can simply join MKS and enjoy a year of events. Our membership year is 1st Sept - 31st Aug. Payment to be made online to account 20-54-25 70763950. MRS L E Smith. This must be from your own account as further ID prove.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a DATING SITE. It is social site only, so no inappropriate behaviour when private messaging others or at events.

We have only two conditions for membership: -

Firstly, a clear very recent (within 6 months) full head & shoulders picture of YOU only (not your kids, doggie or a nice tree.....!) is required to remain in the group. This can be updated as often as you like. This is both so the event host can recognise you when you arrive at an event, and for your personal safety that you also know who is at the event. If you’re not happy with walking into an event on your own for the first time, we can arrange for a chaperone to meet you outside. Hence a recent or new photo so you can be recognised.

Secondly, we ask that all new members attend a MeetUp within a month of applying to see if the group suits you.. It is important that you are sure you can attend and change your RSVP to not going so others perhaps on a waitlist can go. Failure to turn up 3 times without notice or RSVP change and we will consider removing your profile.

So if you’d like to expand your social life, come and join us! I look forward to welcoming you.
