The main purpose of this group is to create a platform for single parents to arrange child friendly (or even adult friendly!) meet ups where we can all enjoy days out/trips away and have some adult chat along the way! Parks, Science Centre, cinema, lunches, the group does it all and it's great to chat with people who understand some of the restrictions/hurdles that single parents conquer on a daily basis.
********Please read group membership rules below before joining*********
Once you have joined and paid your fees, it would be great if you can join us at an event within 3 months. If dates/times of the events created do not suit then please contact the organiser who will help create an event suitable.
There is no point in joining and not participating in anything.
There is an annual fee of £4 for group membership, this is to cover the meetup subscription cost and expenses. This fee should be paid at the first available opportunity, either in person at an event or via PayPal and certainly within one month of joining whether or not an event has been attended. If members fail to pay their fees then unfortunately they will be removed from the group. Any profit from fee's will be used to assist supplement a group event at the end of the year - members attending events will be able to have an input on this.
With regard to no shows; no shows are frowned upon in most meetups and this group is no exception. If you have RSVPd yes to a meetup but find that you cannot make it for whatever reason please change your RSVP to no ASAP. It's common courtesy to the organizer and the other members, also to any restaurant where a table may have been booked for a certain number of people. The majority of our events involve our children attending therefore event hosts do not want to be waiting on no shows. Consideration towards all members is a must in this group.
It's great to see the group growing however anyone who has been inactive for more than 6 months will be removed from the group. There is no point in having the group's numbers artificially boosted by inactive members. As above, should you wish to rejoin the group at any point you may be allowed to do so, so long as it is your intention to be an active member.
Single Parents Glasgow looks forward to you joining us and meeting up for an event in the not too distant future.
