What we're about

Found yourself on your own too many times and feeling lonely and isolated ?

Social life poor or non existent ?

Want to meet new friends sharing similar interests?

- then join our group today!

Many of us are in this situation due to circumstances beyond our control and doing - but we do not have to continue life without fun and friends. It is down to each of us to make changes and joining our group is simple and instant once you make that decision.

All welcome men and women finding themselves stuck at home to come along and meet up for drinks/food/dancing/days out and make some new local friends in a similar position.

The group organises Only social events for good times, fun and to build great friendships. Members are welcome to bring a +1 for support on most of our events. Or feeling nervous coming on your own then send a message and we can arrange for you to be greeted on arrival.

Our events run both in the evenings midweek and at the weekends, they are varied and we try to accomodate most interests and wallets. We don't do expensive so most are within everyone's social budget - affordable, often taking advantage of deals/discounts or often free.

We are open to suggestions from members to say what type of events appeal to them and preferred attendance times. Look out for our recently introduced 'new members intro meetups' aimed at only a few attendees who have recently joined but don't feel confident enough to come to their first event meetup on their own.

At the moment there are no membership fees for joining, our meetup group is free to join. However, we do have some basic rules/guidlines and request they are respected -

• Respect -to other members and courteous at all times - remember these may be your future friends. We do not tolerate bad behaviour especially when under the influence. Members are solely responsible for their own behaviour. Unacceptable bad behaviour will result in removal from the group.

• Consideration - when you RSVP to a meetup event - if you need to cancel even late in the day please remove your name from the list, and message the event if your attendance is cancelled with short notice. This is only fair to those attendees and the host who would otherwise be 'hanging around' and waiting for you not to show. One day you may be waiting around for a no show! It also free's up limited places on events for other members.

• No Shows - If you fail to attend a meetup and don’t let us know you will lose your membership after 3 instances. We do appreciate there are unforeseen circumstances which would prevent members from fulfilling their attendance so we will be lenient for 3 of these.

This group is not for couples or members who are in a serious relationship •

NOTE - This is not a dating group and we do not encourage members who persistently target other members with this intention. Far better to come along to our events and build your social life meeting people face to face and becoming a regular of our group. Natural friendships/companionships will form as members find others with the same outlook on life and interests - that is what the group is about. We have no issues if members do become friends and meetup outside of this groups activities all we ask is not to put the other group members in an awkard position.

However, members on the recieving end of persistent unwelcome attention/messaging should in the first instance make it clear that they are not a willing recipient? . Members who are then continued to be affected by this are encouraged to report it to the organiser.

The site is monitored and anyone who does not comply will be removed.
