What we're about

ABOUT THE MEETUP

This is a group for both ladies and gentlemen, singles and couples who are currently finding it frustrating like myself to find exciting like minded individuals to go out with during the day or evening, within the south and other areas of London too. Do you have different interests to your friends, has your best friends moved away, friends are married, have a young family, or are you new in London? If so this is the group for you. The events will take place whenever i find something exciting to attend, please feel free to join us, the group is for positive individuals who want to do something new for a change with like minded fun people. For example Burlesques Shows, 1920's, 30's, 40's 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's events, Jive/Swing Dancing, Line Dancing, Afro Beats, Salsa, River Dancing Shows, Comedy Shows, Pop Up Events, Food Festivals, Street Food Markets, Theater, Cinema, Opera, Celebrating other people's cultures ,Dinners, Lunch, Picnics, Weekends away, Holidays, Spas and lots more, if anyone has a suggestion for an event please feel free to share with the group.

If you have an idea for an event please share with me and will see what i can do, all suggestion are appreciated. Additionally if you would like to host an event please feel free to do so, you must have attended at least 10 meetups over 12 months, so that other members can get a better understanding of who you are as a person.

YEARLY FEES

There will be small membership fee of £10 or £10.60 if paying via paypal to be paid annually this helps towards the running cost of the meetups, which includes planning, researching, sourcing, admin and meetup site charges. Each member will become a VIP MEMBER once payment has been received.

16 days Holiday in Thailand in January 2019

Needs a location

£475.00

I have always wanted to travel to the Far East such a fascinating country for great food, people, culture, beauty, ambience and adventure. From the temples and street food to the pristine beaches and luxury hotels, you’ve got every excuse for a holiday to Thailand. After the festive season lets escape from the chilly, bitter, winter months of January and venture out to the far east during their highest peak season for some well deserved vitamin D. The land of smiles Thailand is known as the land of smiles, thanks to the welcoming nature of the Thai people. But there’s so much more to the country than friendly faces. In fact, it’s impossible to sum up Thailand in a nutshell, because every part is different.

MEMBERSHIP FEES - £10 or £10.60 VIA PAYPAL

Hello everyone hope all is well, just wanted to remind you all of your yearly membership fees are due soon. Thanks to all who have made payments already, really appreciate it, please feel free to ask if your year is up as many signed up to this meetup group at various times during the year. NON VIP MEMBERS WILL BE REMOVED BY 28TH MAY There are many people on this group who are not active, are not VIP MEMBERS and have not paid their yearly membership fees, as a result you will be REMOVED, it's clear that this is not the group for you. Am not interested in how many members are in my group, its about the quality of my members who are serious, quantity is just a numbers game and mean nothing to me, the smaller the group the better :) In order to stay in this group you MUST BE A VIP MEMBER, if you do not have VIP MEMBER beside your name you will be removed. This group is for like minded people who want to enjoy life VIP MEMBERS are welcome to bring a friend to at least one of the events, unless it's a holiday event, they can attend as many travels as they wish and do not need to become a VIP MEMBER. HOSTING Sadly there is only one of me, so can't physically, mentally and financially attend several different events consistently. Please feel free to host events if you wish, you will be exempted from paying a yearly membership fee, in order to host an event you must have attended at least 10 events consistently over a period of 6 months as this will give me and other members a good idea of your character. Once you become a host you must host at least once a month, as this shows commitment and consistency. You can also host if you have hosted other events in other groups on the meetup platform. PAYMENT This group has been going for nearly 3 years with over 300 events, a small annual charge of £10 for membership fees is required towards admin, researching etc or £10.60 if your paying VIA PAYPAL, 60p goes towards paypal charges. This tends to make members truly value this group. It also helps weed out individuals who aren't really interested in participating in this group. City Socializer although a bigger platform charges their members £10 per month. Once payment is received you will become a VIP Member , for those whose membership has expired you will no longer be a VIP MEMBER. You can also make payment of £10 directly into my bank account to Toyin Oke Account number[masked] sort code[masked]. Please use your name as reference so that i know you have paid, also send me a personal message to confirm payment. Many thanks for those of you who have made payments already. YOUR AWESOME, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE I have met some really lovely people from this group, and we have grown in numbers, for me it's not about how many members we have in our group it's about the quality of members that attend the social events. Like minded individuals who want to come out and enjoy their social life as we really just have one life to live and believe me, we must live it to the full. I love the fact that this group is very varied and does not conform to the norm of so many other meetups on this site. I have organised events for theatres, pubs, clubs, bars, eateries, festivals, musicals, shows, great weekends away, alternative events and more exciting events to come. I have met are fun, friendly, chatty, funny, easy going individuals, we have had an awesome few years with lots of amazing events attended and many more to come. A big special thank you to all who have supported this group and showed lots of love and gratification, i really do appreciate it. Membership fees helps towards the running cost of the meetups, which includes planning, researching, sourcing, admin and meetup site charges, which are quite expensive and make payments to them twice a year to run this group. If you are not happy with the charges please feel free to leave, although we will miss you, yet understand that this group may not be suitable for all.
