What we’re about

Hello 👋

I hope all is well with you and thank you for your initial interest.

Why join Basildon & Beyond?
If you’re a little nervous to join, please let me assure you from the off as a new member you will feel comfortable and always inclusive. Of which will continue while you’re with us. This is because we are welcoming, friendly and like minded individuals who want to meetup and have a great time at events such as dining out, lunches, walks, festivals, crazy golf, picnics, Zoos, comedy, tributes and much more (pub crawl’s excluded).
As long as you’re over 18 (with the odd exception). Single or in a relationship you’re welcomed.

In order to keep this community active and relevant, I may remove members who haven't shown any activity with the group for over 6 months or who RSVP for events and just don't turn up.I will also reserve the right to cancel a membership if there is any disrespect to others and consistent signing up and pulling out of events, with no refund of membership.

If you sign up and later can't make it, please move your name to "Not Going" before the RSVP deadline or notify the Event Host! That's the polite thing to do.

Please can you make sure you add a current and clear photo of yourself (only). So the hosts and others can recognise you.

If you pay in full to a host for them to book your place at an event be aware that if for any reason your are no longer able to attend, please move your name to "Not Going" . You are welcome to post your offer on the board to see if anyone would like to take your place and any payment transactions would have to take place between you and the new receiver and the new receiver must make sure they sign up to the event.

Please note when paying a deposit for an event this is non-refundable unless the event is cancelled or if the deposit hasn’t already been accounted for (paid to venue).
Plus One’s: If you would like to bring a non member with you, that’s absolutely fine. However, if you wish to bring that same person to more than 2 events. To be fair to the paying members I will need to request they join the group, which of course I hope they do. But if they don’t, sadly I cannot permit for them to attend any further.

I wish I could offer free membership. But alas Meetup does charge for this great platform. So, I have a small £8 (subject to change) joining then yearly membership fee, which can be paid via PayPal or bank transfer. Further details advised.

If you’re still unsure about joining, the 4.7 out of 5 star rating from members will, I hope give you the push to take the plunge.

Bye 👋 take care and we really hope to see you.
