Hello and welcome to the new look Wakefield and District Over 40s Social Group! It is now being run by Jane R and Diane B, so any ideas or problems please let us know.
This group is for anyone over 40 who is interested in socialising, making new friends and generally having a good time! We offer a wide range of events including afternoon teas, cinema, lunches, quizzes, dining out, theatre, music events, strolls, brunches, coffee etc. If you wish to become a host please let us know as we welcome any new ideas for events that have not been included which you may wish to do.
EXISTING MEMBERS please note the change of bank account details as follows:-

Account no: 39822377
Account name: 3982237707
We do ask that when you apply to join our group you upload a clear picture which includes your face so that we will recognise you when you come to events. We also ask that you send your joining fee, currently £3.00, direct to our bank account shown above. The membership fee is payable on your second event or after 4 weeks of being added to the group, whichever comes first. Please don't give any cash to other members to pass on and please don't send cheques. If you could put your first name and your surname initial on your profile that would be helpful and especially on your joining fee as reference to the bank account. We have to charge a joining fee to cover the Meet Up admin costs with the Meet Up franchise. If you require a receipt at any time, we will gladly give you one.
We request that you always RSVP to events you wish to attend so that the host knows who is coming. On some events non-member guests are welcome (this is shown on the event) but after 3 visits we would expect them to join the group themselves.
We appreciate that we are all busy people and life events such as work or illness can happen at short notice which means you can't get to an event where you have RSVP'd, so we would be grateful if you could amend this so that the host of the event will know who to look out for.
We understand (and remember our first time!) that it can be daunting for a new member to attend an event, so please let the host know and we can arrange to meet you outside the venue.
Please note that this is not a dating site and we welcome singles and couples.
We do not tolerate abuse, racism or very bad language from anyone towards any of our members. We ask that all members treat each other with respect.
Deposits for any meals, outings, etc should also be paid into the above account. Please note that some deposits may be non-refundable but this will be noted on the event.
Note to existing members: Membership may be revoked if no events have been attended within the last 18 months.
