Social event and Fundraising week
Membership dues for running the arts group site are currently, well, due, and the Meetup organisation is asking for $72 US Dollars (around £46) to host the site for the next six months.
As the recent 'Long to Rave O'er Us' jubilee party was cancelled, possibly because the chosen date didn't suit everybody, I suggest a series of social events at local venues starting the week of the 18th June, where hopefully the weather will be kinder, and at which members are invited to attend and hopefully contribute a pound or two towards running costs.
I've come up with the following venues, which have been arts group haunts in the past, but please state your preferred days and whether afternoons or evenings are best, and I'll announce two or three social events to pick and choose from by the middle of this week.
For those who've just joined us, we are the fourth largest of the 37 Oxford Meetup groups, and with the exception of the indefatigable Oxford Social Walkers, put on more events than any other group in the area, including promotions of local arts projects. It's a valuable and extremely friendly and welcoming organisation and well worth supporting.
Freuds - large venue with terrace - particularly good on Sunday afternoon
Gardener's Arms - vegetarian pub with nice cosy backdoor garden
Albion Beatnik - The Arts Group has strong links with this friendly bookshop/cafe
Other suggestions are welcome - particularly if members are able to offer a meeting place for hire, free of charge.
Thanks for your attention,
(Oxford Arts Group organiser)
