Please provide a full photo - when requesting to join the group. This is a ladies only group.
New members wanting to join The Dolly Mixtures, please be aware that some commitment is required - as I only hold occasional meetups within the month and they are mostly all held at a Fixed Venue; within the Medway area. It is especially important that members try and come along and give the Dolly Mixtures a go, The group is a made up of very friendly and welcoming ladies; all waiting to meet you!!
The Group is aimed for ladies ages 40 and upwards - late 30's is fine aswell, I am reaching out to members who preferably live in the Medway area- ie: Strood/Rochester/Higham or any surrounding Medway Towns- but I do have members that come from Gravesend/Dartford/Sittingbourne and sometimes a little further afield so if you are willing to commute the distance, then I have no problem with you joining the Dolly Mixtures.
My main purpose is to bring together "like minded individuals" from a variety of backgrounds and cultures- to "form friendships be supportive of each other " and "have a laugh" and this year we are starting to get fit together!
As my group is a small setting, I only have limited places for members at each meet-up so my intention is to take on members who "are genuine and actively want to particpate with the Dolly Mixtures Group" if you are an individual who is finding it hard to make friends through work or hobbies, or maybe you are on the "quieter side" then this group might be for you, who knows what new friends you might make!
Meetups will include:
• Having a drink together, and optional food is available; having a chat and a laugh along the way!
• Occasional "Sunday Roasts" will try and coincide those with farmers market days
• Coffee shop catch ups mid week and some weekends
• Card games including"Uno" and "Chase the Queen"
• Occasional day trips, cinema and walks
• Gym and swimming.
'Remember their are no strangers just friends whom have never met'
*** Please note: I now charge an annual £6 non refundable membership fee and this will be payable on the first meet up or via bank transfer - starting from April each year. This cost covers my expenses, and re-coups my costs of running and arranging meetups every month.
What I ask from my members - note: this is a small group so any non attendance obviously impacts on the group greater, please therefore consider this before responding as spaces are limited and if you can no longer attend please let us know as soon as possible so the space can be filled by another. Note that guests are welcome at some events and there is a small £1 fee for this. Do doublecheck that you can bring a guest to avoid disappointment as of course members take priority.
Also to note, we have become a very jolly, harmonious,close, kind group and we welcome wholeheartedly new friends to join us so don't worry we were all new girls once, hope to see you soon ***
