This group is for ladies and gentleman who are 50 or over.
So first, who we aren't:
Relaxed so we won't be arranging sporting events at all.
Not a single's club so please don't join with that expectation...if you meet somebody we will be so happy for you but this is not the purpose of the group. So, married, divorced, widowed or single over 50's very welcome.
So secondly, who we are:
We're nice ladies and gentleman from all walks of life who just want a good group of friends to do simple things with like Movie Nights, Tea, Sweet Treats & Chat, possibly do Arts & Crafts together (you would need to buy and bring you supplies), Games Evenings from Monopoly to Bingo (please let us know what games you can bring or introduce the group to), Book Swapps, Dinner Safari (we all bring something to the meal), Mini Wine Auction, Lunch & Lucky Draw, Full Dinners, visits to the Botanical Gardens, Nice Restaurant outings (reasonably priced), Curry Evenings, Plant Swapp (So you bring a pot plant or a garden plant to swapp), Outings to Markets (Winelands), Cocktail evenings (Virgin and Alcoholic), Clothing Swapp (for the ladies that have new to almost new clothes that they bought and proved to be a disaster), Magazine Swapps, Interesting Talks (do you have something great to share with the group, for instance, have you travelled somewhere really interesting, do you have an unusual hobby or job, an unusual pet, do you know a lot about an interesting topic and so on)?, Mani & Pedi (for the ladies to do each other's nails), Secret Santa (So we all meet up and bring a gift for a male or female and enjoy a Christmas Dinner or Christmas Lunch), Second Hand Book Purchases (Books for Sale), Mouth Painting Picture Sale Evenings.
We want to be the kind of group where we trust each other, support each other (Cos sometimes life gets tough) and just to have a lot of good clean fun!
We'd like this to be the kind of group where we celebrate each other's birthday.
Each member more than welcome to suggest things to do and venues.
Most of the events will be in a room we hire out (Durbanville central), it's private, secure with plenty of parking together with all the crockery, cutlery, decorations hired out too etc.
Members of this group will need to pay 50% towards the function upfront by EFT and the balance in cash on arrival. You will receive an E-mail confirmation of 50% paid and a voucher at the door saying you have paid in full. If for any reason the Meet Up is cancelled your 50% will be refunded immediately.
The reason is because events cost money to prep (Room hire, decorations, cutlery & crockery) and we want to do this really nicely and offer seriously good value for money and fun!
Please only join if everything suits you! And please only join if you are really going to RSVP and show up.
