This group will become a limited group from February 2017 - membership will be limited to 50 members.
I have loved being an organiser and it has been great to meet so many lovely people, but equally organising is a lot of effort. I am changing the group to a basic subscription group, no more than 50 members, as an organiser I would much rather have a small reliable group of people who attend regularly than a large membership.
The group is about meeting up with likeminded people for good food, a drink or two and good company. Meals, films, outings, comedy shows, gallery visits, walks, an occasional sporting event - and of course always open to suggestions if you have any good ideas for meetups.
Anyone is welcome to join, the great thing about Meetup groups are that you meet so many different people. I tend to avoid groups where cliques form because I find that these groups can get into a rut and become closed to both new people and new types of meetups.
All members will be asked to make a contribution to the running costs of the group from their second meetup. A £3 annual membership fee will be requested.
Any meetup dining events are on the basis that each attendee pays the host for what they ordered plus any additional service charge and the host settles the bill. It is preferable if you bring cash, keep track of what you ordered and it is obligatory that you contribute to the service charge.
* Please keep logging into the website to keep your membership active. I would rather have a small group of active members, so I will occasionally cull non-active members from the website.
