Our purpose is to create opportunities to socialise, enjoy days out, meals, live music, cinema, and much more. Our radius for events around Stevenage is about 15 miles for example Baldock, Letchworth, Hitchin, Welwyn Garden City, Luton, Henlow, and sometimes further afield.
Our aim is to have a good time, meet different people, make friends, and to live life to the full, according to your budget. We are a relaxed and friendly group with members attending whichever events they prefer. There is an annual fee (see Paperwork section below) but no limit to the number of events you attend in a year. The more you attend, the more you start meeting the same like-minded people.
This group is run as a team effort with two joint Co-organisers, several Hosts, plus others who put forward ideas or help with planning, and admin. So there is always someone to host our meetups, and there is a variety of things to do.
We have regular events like pub quizzes and walks; annual events like Christmas Party and Burns Night; and the rest really depend on venues, performers, etc. These include social evenings like pub nights, live music and dancing; meals day or evening; films and plays; activities such as bowling or archery; and days away in London or somewhere like Brighton.
If any of this appeals to you, then have a look at our calendar and we hope you find things you want to do with us.
And now for the “paperwork” …
1. To join this group, please complete your profile for this group, then upload or use an existing current photo of yourself showing your face so we will recognise you at events. We will review and contact you as soon as possible (usually within 48 hours).
2. We have an annual fee that is waived for your first event (if the event itself has a fee, that will still be due). You will only be asked to pay the annual fee from your second event. This annual fee goes into the kitty to cover the charge we have to pay meetup.com, and any costs incurred in preparing for events.
3. The annual fee is £5 – payable in March or at time of joining. However if you join after September the fee is reduced to £3 and the full annual fee becomes due in March.
4. Any fees outstanding for a month without prior agreement will result in suspension of membership.
