This is a North London-based group which organises mostly social plus some active outdoor activities. We are based around the Muswell Hill / Crouch End area radiating out from there to surrounding neighbourhoods. The aim is to be local so it's easy to travel to places. There are outings further afield into town or out to the country.
Social activities are generally in the evenings and weekends. Events could be films, live music, theatre, nightlife, dancing, exhibitions, guided walks. Plus of course pubs and bars and meals out in simple or fancy restaurants. In general we prefer doing things and enjoying culture and activity with drinks and meals added on rather than just drinks and meals alone, although sometimes we do that. Really anything that we the organisers and you guys want to do!
Outdoor activities might be walking, hiking, picnics, rafting, high ropes or other sports.
We can meet new people, make new friends, discover new hobbies, find new places in our local area and much more. This is an opportunity to relax, meet and socialise with other members while doing activities you enjoy. Join us, take part and let's have an adventure...
Membership is open to all. Suggestions are most welcome. Any questions about the group or member suggestions for events please message me through my profile.
We look forward to meeting you. We are a friendly bunch. Many genuine friendships have been formed in this group and I am sure this will continue.
RULES AND GUIDELINES
Please please post a real picture of yourself not an object. You won't be banned just for not doing so (for now) though this is entirely at the Organiser's discretion. We understand that ocasionally there are circumstances where you prefer not to have a real photo and you may be asked about this. However, a real photo it is much preferred as it helps us all to relate to each other not to mention recognise others at events. Applicants who are anonymous, ie who do not provide any real details about themselves in their profile, will not be admitted.
We are not a platform for members to advertise other groups, activities or services, whether professional or private, their own or for others. Any members found to be engaging in this will be removed and may be blocked from re-joining.
In particular our Meetup group is NOT an online dating site. Random messages to other members within the group that you have not personally met WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Any member reported to the group organisers for sending out messages to other members that they haven’t met for the purpose of ‘chatting them up’ WILL BE REMOVED without warning and blocked from re-joining. Please note the Organisers will do their best to respond to member distress requests in a timely manner but please bear in mind all this activity is voluntary and they have many other calls on their time.
Members are expected to behave decently and considerately when they RSVP to events, communicate with other members and attend events. As you would with a group of your personal friends.
NO SHOW POLICY
North London Friends is run by volunteers who give their time and efforts to organise great events for members to enjoy. Please DO NOT RSVP for events and No Show or cancel in the last 24 hours. Members who persist with such rude and inconsiderate behaviour will be removed from the group at the Organisers' discretion. As a general rule two No Shows and you are out on a third time. Or it could be sooner if it is a restaurant booking or similar reserved event and you did not cancel or attempt to get in touch. This may sound harsh but No Shows can spoil events and upset hosts and other members. Thank you for your attention.
