What we're about

We are an activities and Social network based group for Shrewsbury and the surrounding area.

Our aim is to organise events to get people out and about and socialising with each other. If you want to meet new people or expand your circle of friends and activities then come along and join us. Activities will range from pub meet ups, music and dining events, walking, cycle rides to coffee mornings and chilled afternoons. if you enjoy meeting people for friendly banter and fun sharing and enjoying good times then this could be for you.

THIS IS NOT A SINGLES OR DATING GROUP - This group's prime aim is to organise fun activities for people to enjoy and to enable people to socialise together. Most of our members tend to be single but we also have many couples within the group too. The main aim is to create a community of people who support each other

COST
Apart from paying for the events, we take a £5 joining fee and then each year after that a £2 fee, this covers the meetup app and admin costs, its also allows bigger events to be organised without risk to individual organisers, this will also prevent people loosing money if things go wrong with events

Paypal closed the money pool service.. collectiv is a free service, they will charge you if you let them please resist, https://pay.collctiv.com/shrewsbury-social-networking-51521 you don't need to join or setup an account, please leave your name so we know you have contributed, the reason for using this service is to keep the money out of personal bank accounts and so as not to have to post bank details to everyone.

CODE OF CONDUCT / BEHAVIOUR
We expect everybody to treat others with respect. We will remove any member showing inappropriate, abusive or antisocial behaviour. The group is also private, which means non-members cannot see who is a member - so you should feel safe joining us.

AGE RANGE
Our group is for all people of working age, All members welcome in their early 20s through to people in their 60's. We have events to suit everybody.

ATTENDANCE
We recommend that you try to come along within the first 6 weeks of joining. If your shy or reluctant for whatever reason, contact any of the event hosts and we'll help you take that first steps, we have all done that 1st meetup and are aware how it can feel for some people to walk in alone, but you wont be as soon as your in the door, please remember that we actively manage our members list and do remove inactive members - this is to keep our membership count real. You will always be able to re-join at another time, no fee.

A FEW HINTS
A profile picture should be real ones of yourself, it helps at meet ups for organisers to recognise you and you recognise others.

if an event is full join the wait list, things happen and people change plans, please don't take a place then drop out at short notice because you have had a better offer, others may miss out or business's loose out, be considerate of your fellow socials, the organisers and venues.

We have a dedicated group of organisers within In Touch but are always looking to encourage new organisers/hosts to join the leadership team. Members can also add single events as suggestions once they have established themselves within the group. If there's an event going on somewhere and you'd like company - then add it as a suggestion on the site or tell one of the group event organisers about it. The involvement of members helps the group continue to grow and offer a large range of events to suit all.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Gwil, Bobby, John, Carol, Simon, Rose, Alan and all the event organisers
