My name is 'Mandy' & I have created this group for people over 40 into their late 50's who want to socialise, meet new friends & bring some fun, laughter, friendly banter & adventure back into their lives. It is not a group for people who want to sit around talking politics.
So if you are New to the area, friends have moved on or you just want a bigger social life & would like to do the same, then get in touch. We accept members from all areas if they are prepared to travel to events. We are a small friendly group, all there for the same reason to make new friends! So stop thinking about it & take that plunge! You have nothing to lose because if for any reason you decide its not for you which I am sure you wont but if you do, you don't have to come again its entirely your choice! We don't force people & we don't judge.
THIS IS NOT A DATING GROUP! So please do not join if that is your intentions as there are plenty of other groups out there for that specific purpose!
We will meet up for a chat over drinks or a coffee, meals, BBQ's (Hosted by members), activities, Pub lunches, walks & outings or any activities you fancy giving a go! I'm open to any suggestions so PLEASE Message me with your ideas and I will create an event. We all need to work together for this group to work to its full potential. I will create as many events as i can but my suggestions may not be to everyone's taste so that's why i need your input too! I may not be able to attend all events myself so please say if you would like to host the event yourself! (Being a Host just means that you as a member of the group will definitely be there to greet other members & make them feel welcome!)
IMPORTANT GROUP RULES:
After you join you can attend one event for free to see if you like us, then you will be required to pay a £6 Non refundable Annual membership fee (Less than 50p per month!) to be able to remain in the group & attend other Events. This fee is to help with Organisation & Administration reoccurring set up costs for this group which I as the organiser have to pay to Meet Up. Any members who do not pay will be deleted from the group! I will email you payment details when you join.
I will be keeping the group to a small sensible size so we can actually get to know each other and form real friendships out of the group. So for this reason any members who do not appear to be making any effort to join in events over a 6 month period of time will be removed from the group.
Members who RSVP 'Yes' then fail to turn up to an advent without letting us know in advance with a valid reason is called a 'No Show'. If this happens THREE times you will be removed from the group. So please only RSVP 'Yes' if you actually intending on going!
Any organised events that require a deposit will need to be payed for in advance and are NON REFUNDABLE. Until you have paid you will not be booked on to the event.
Please check into the Meet up site regularly and respond to each event with a RSVP of 'Yes' or 'No' so we know if the event is popular or not.
You will need to have written a bit about yourself & have a head & shoulders profile picture when requesting to join.
Sorry if the rules sound harsh but we only want people to join who truly want to form friendships for what the group is intended!
