We are an open and friendly group whose aim is to organise events in the Deepings and Spalding area. We welcome anyone who is looking to improve their social life, whether single or in a relationship.
Attracting people of all ages and backgrounds who enjoy getting together to explore local venues, whether that be meeting up for a coffee and a chat, the occasional spot of lunch or evening meal, through to evening drinks events, local pub quizzes and a book and theatre group. We are always seeking out new events and new ideas, and strongly encourage members to make suggestions, especially if they wish to act as host.
Joining the group is free for the first 3 months, after which a £5.00 per annum subscription fee is required to continue to have access to our site. This fee is taken to help cover the costs of administrating the website (for which MeetUp Charge) and to provide a small pool of funds used towards booking venues for specific group activities and/or to cover hosts should they need to pay deposits when making restaurant reservations or when it is necessary to purchase a large number of tickets for events. If this fee is not paid, then I'm sorry but your membership will be discontinued. Should you decide to re-join our group, you will need to pay the subscription fee in order for your membership to be approved.
Our activities typically take place in Market Deeping, Spalding, Helpston, West Deeping, Baston, Deeping St James, Barholm, Etton, and Spalding. For this reason priority is usually given to people looking to join from these places, as well as, Crowland, Maxey, Northborough, Glinton, Bourne, Werrington, and rarely the outskirts of Stamford.
Ideally, we recommend that you try to attend your first meeting within a month of joining. If you are feeling particularly anxious, each event has a host/s who can be contacted through the message board and arrangements can be made to meet you and help you take that first step.
All members are required to supply an up to date photograph of themselves when joining. This is to help hosts identify new members at MeetUps, as well as build trust. Applications to join the group that do not provide a photograph or come with a photograph of something else will be declined.
Lastly, Please Note:
This group is open to everyone regardless of marital status, age and cultural background. We expect our members to treat each other with respect and anyone behaving in a disrespectful or antisocial manner, either in person or through our message boards, can have their membership revoked by agreement of the organisers. This is also private group, so members can expect a degree of privacy and security with their membership not visible to non-members.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read all this. I hope that it has enabled you to make sure that this is the right group for you.
