What we're about

Hello everyone!

A Meetup group for young people in York. Are you in or around your twenties? Perhaps you've moved here for work, perhaps you've always been here but your friends have moved elsewhere? Or have you recently graduated and you're just not sure what to do with yourself?

The first step is joining the meetup. All of our events will be posted on the meetup site, so make sure you are a member there and you can see the full range of our events available. Which leads us nicely to...

...The second step! Deciding which of our awesome events you would like to attend!

The third and hardest step is turning up to that first event, but don't worry we have all been there! I promise you all the regulars are just as nervous and excited to meet you as you are them! If you are nervous then feel free to join our facebook group:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/York20sSocial/

On there you can write a message to say hello to our members, or you can simply just have a look and see if you are mutual friends with anyone in the group.

As an organizer group we love newbies, and the best events are always the ones with lots of new faces. If you are nervous about your first event then feel free to post on the event or direct message an organizer and we will do everything we can to help you make the most of the meetup.

We are an active group that thrives on participation, our events are only as fun as you make them! If there is an event or meetup you would like to host then speak to an organizer at one of our regular events and they will happily assist you.

As an organizer group we are committed to providing fun and friendly events for all our members and enabling everyone to feel safe and secure in all of our activities. If you have any concerns about attending any events please email us. We have a zero tolerance policy towards inappropriate behaviour, if at any our events you are made to feel uncomfortable or at risk by another member or if you have received unwarranted direct messages from anyone, please contact us and we will deal with the matter conscientiously and confidentially.

Upcoming events (5+)

Football at York Sport Village - Start Time: 8.30pm

York Sport Village

£3.00

This is an informal 5 a-side kickaround hosted at the York Sport Village. Please arrive in good time to start at 8:30pm so we can make the most of the time allocated to us. It is on a good 3G surface, so you can wear plastic/moulded studs (not metal) but trainers are also satisfactory. Please take responsibility for your own safety with regards shin-pads etc. This is open to lads and ladies no matter what skill level you are, the more the merrier. It is an informal but structured game, the idea is to have a good time and encourage others. (If you’re looking for a more serious/physical 5 a-side “league” style game then this probably isn’t for you). There will be a small charge of £3 to take part in this event, this is to cover the cost of pitch hire and a few extras like bibs and footballs. This MUST be paid by every player each week in order to keep the event running. Transport: there is ample parking at the venue, and the Number 66 bus runs from Piccadilly out to York Sport. A return ticket costs £2. Any questions please post them on the message board.

Friday Night drinks

The Graduate

Whoop Whoop it's Friday!!! Two days of fun and relaxation lie ahead, what better way to celebrate the weekend than coming down for a drink and meet some new friends! As Tim has decided to concentrate on another couple of events and try not to spread himself too thinly, I've taken Friday night drinks on. If it's your first time then post on the event, we always like to hear from you and it can help those first time nerves! I will be arriving at 7:30pm so if you prefer a quieter surroundings then feel free to pop along a little earlier.
