The group was set up for people aged 50 and over, living in the Chester, North Wales, Wirral, Cheshire, areas. It can be hard when you are older or even retired to know where to go to meet other people of a similar age. We have members of mixed ages from 50, 60, 70+ who have numerous interests. This site will help you to mix and socialise with other members, by joining in with events they have put on. Every member is encouraged to put on events, so if there is something you've been wanting to do, but have no one to do it with, now is your chance. Just put it on the site as an event, and interested members will RSVP. Everyone says we are a friendly bunch, so come on and join in, you will be made very welcome.
The membership fee is £5 and is non-refundable.
MEMBERSHIP WILL BE APPROVED WHEN £5 FEES HAVE BEEN PAID by:-
ONLINE BANKING (QUOTE SUBS & THE NAME YOU WILL USE ON YOUR PROFILE ON THE WEBSITE.)

It is up to all members to organise meetups (events) by filling in the on screen form. It's actually quite easy and quick (once you get used to it).
Our requirements for membership are as follows:-
1 You must complete the short questionnaire with the information requested as to what your interests are and where you come from. Also what you would like to gain from joining the group.
2 You must provide a CLEAR HEAD AND SHOULDERS PHOTO OF JUST YOURSELF. (No animals, other family members or friends must be on the photo.) This is so that all members can be recognised by other members when attending events. Applications with incorrect photos will be declined and you will be asked to re apply with the correct photo.
3 Your profile should not promote your own, or anybody else's Financial Interests/Gains, and you should not use membership of the group to do this.
4 We look forward to members putting on at least one event each year that we can all enjoy. (Help/advice on how to do this can be given....it's easy!)
5 If after 9 months members have been inactive in the group, it is up to our discretion to cancel their membership.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF A MEMBER CEASES TO COMPLY WITH THE MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS, THEIR MEMBERSHIP WILL BE CANCELLED WITHOUT NOTICE. THIS INCLUDES CHANGING OR REMOVING A PROFILE PICTURE.
N.B. When you apply for membership, it will appear that you have been accepted, but you will not be able to access the site fully until the application has been approved.
You will have 4 weeks to complete your application.
