What we're about
Are you up for a good day/night out with and/or without the children? If you are a single parent, mum or dad, who wants to share a laugh, wants to take charge of your and your children's social life and could do with the support of others in the same boat as you, sign up!
The comments left on the meetup site by those who come to our get togethers speak for themselves....This is a great group of people! For many of us, it has been a real lifeline and adults and kids alike, we have all made some great friends.
We look forward to welcoming you to this new meetup group!
A bit more about the group
The group started in November 2011 and grows every week. Because the group is growing, I thought it may be good to mention some guidelines / do and dont's.
Our members are fairly wide spread around Hampshire and West Sussex. All single parents, ie mums and dads, who take care of their children part time or full time are welcome to join our group. This is not intended to be a singles/dating group. We arrange events for both parents and their chilren and some adult only events. All members can set up events on the site. When setting up an event on the site, as it is a public website, please do not include your phone number or other personal contact details. When adding a comment to an event, again, please don't include personal contact details. There is a facility to email those attending an event if you want to pass on this kind of information.
Members are welcome to bring guests to events, but please ensure you add a comment when you RSVP for an event saying who you are bringing. When bringing a guest/s, to a parents and children event, your guest has to be a single parent too. Members who don't have their children, but have been to meetups with their children before, are welcome to join parent and children events without their children.
The subscription for the group is £5 per adult and is due 1st March every year. Subs will go towards the kids Christmas party and other larger group events through the year. You will be sent a reminder for subs, and will have until the end of March to pay, otherwise your membership will be revoked. Members joining part way through the year will have a month of membership before being asked to pay subs. If at the end of the month, you decide the group isn't for you, no hard feelings!
