This Group is a very friendly place to socialize and as always we will host a very wide range of events based around the Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Walsall areas with occasional events including weekend breaks going much further afield.
Everyone is welcome regardless of age, ethnicity, religion etc. If you’re sociable and enjoy similar company then you’ll fit in well. As a leadership team we fully endorse the Meetup philosophy which is “Be respectful, Be kind and Be Real”
To try to keep the group to only active members we are now charging a modest annual fee to all members, both existing and new ones. This is just £2 annually and will go towards the administration costs incurred in running the Group. New members will have just 10 days to pay their subscription or they will be removed, returning members (ie. people who have been removed previously through non-payment) will have to pay first before being allowed to rejoin. Payments will need to be made to a bank account by transfer - message the organiser for details. Any excess funds will be used to subsidise the big ticket events such as the Christmas party. Please note that a current, full face picture is required for admission to the group. This is required so that event hosts and members can recognize you when you attend events.
As part of the attempt to attract only members who will be active participants we will automatically reject applications from people who are already in an excessive number of groups and who have shown little or no activity within these groups.
Organisers can often spend a great deal of time putting on events and so please always keep your RSVPs up to date. If you find that you are no longer able to attend an event please update your RSVP and where possible put a note in the comments. At least 24 hours notice would be appreciated. Places are limited at many events so please be mindful that other members may be waiting to take your place. Repeated non-attendance without prior contact on specified events may result in exclusion or suspension from the Group.
While we already host a wide variety of events we always welcome other suggestions and will encourage and support anyone who is willing to host or to help host events. If this interests you contact one of the organisers or event hosts. Likewise if you have any suggestions or comments about how to do things better we’d like to hear about it.
