What we're about

Thank you for taking the time to look at Friends of Central Belt Scotland (FoCBS). This is a group for anyone interested in meeting up for lunch, dinner, cinema, theatre, day trips, walking, riding and more. All adult Male and/or Female's are welcome. I started this group as I am relatively new to Scotland and would like to meet like minded people. Members can socialise with similar interests and hopefully make good friends. It is not a singles group so if you are looking for a partner then you are in the wrong group; that’s not to say you cant have a relationship with anyone, its just to ensure people don’t think they are here predominately to find a partner.

Anyone will be able to hold an event by emailing me your suggestion so that I can upload a post and enable you to become the host or if you prefer I will host the event for you. Once activated this will enable you to have full access of the event i.e. able to amend dates/times, number of attendees, location etc.

Please note everyone is responsible for his or her own Health, Safety and wellbeing!!

Please be mindful that all attendees should be kind and courteous to each other at all times.

Membership Fees

There are two options to join this group 1) Pay £5:00 per annum to become a full member, this will help towards the running costs of this group and must be paid 30 days after you subscribe to the group. 2) Pay £1:00 for every time you attend an event, this option will probably suit members who do not wish to attend many events. The fee can be paid using Pay Pal or direct to my bank account.

New members subscribing to this group after the month of September will not be expected to pay the full amount of £5 as there are only three months left until the end of the year. However, there will be a charge of £2 when you become a member and must be paid within 30 days of joining.

Existing Members will be expected to pay their annual membership fees by the end of January of each year, via Paypal or direct to my bank account. Members who do not pay their full membership each year will be removed from the group within the month of February. I appreciate you may feel this is unfair, however, for this group to continually run each year, the subscription fee must be paid by me to Meetup.com otherwise they will cease to provide access to Meetup.
