What we're about

This is a social group for men and women in the Lismore and Northern Rivers area.

Northern Rivers Socialites is not a dating site, we are just a group of people interested in making new friends and connections. Wanting a few laughs in the company of others to avoid to social awkwardness of going to a show on your own.

Whether you are new to the area or just want to meet friends you haven't met yet.

Enjoy being around people who like to socialize in an accepting, fun and encouraging environment.

Social events include Dining Out, Cafes, Bush-walks, walking groups, theatre, movie nights, craft activities, educational classes etc.

Eventually I would expect the group to expand and grow into small micro groups.

Please remember that this is not a service it is a meet up.

Event Hosts have created the event and aim to make sure everyone is found and feels welcome but please be aware that occasionally the Event Host may not be able to attend due to unforeseen circumstances. At these times the Meetup phone app can be very useful to communicate with other group members if there is any problems locating members or issues with the event or venue.

For the last 5 years I have covered the costs personally to establish and maintain this group. MEETUP charge a fee of $300 each year to have a group. I am no longer in a financial position to do that so any help will be very welcomed. Therefore we are asking for a $10 financial contribution to be made when you join and then $10 annually at the beginning of each year thereafter to help cover the costs of fees. Only financial members are able to receive emails giving addresses of parties and other functions held at private venues, etc. Your support is crucial to keeping our group running.

Despite having lots of members, I believe our current participation is less than 100 members, as many have moved away but like to stay in the group. Once we have reached $300 for the year I'll will pop a notice into the discussions box as this is 'not a profit group to make money' - its just to cover the costs of running the group. I also encourage people to make a note under discussions if they have contributed money so that other members have an idea about how much is going into the account for transparency.

This can be paid directly to the bank account listed below.

The bank Account Name: Nicola Ribbon (Meet-up Account) Bsb: 08 2489 Account No: 4797 82488.

Please include your Meetup name on your payment so we can tick your name off as paid, and if you don't have your surname on your profile please send me (Nikki) a message on Meetup so that i know which member the payment belongs to.


Can't wait to meet you.
