What are your health and safety procedures for events?

We take no responsibility for the events, the venue or the people who attend, as this is the sole responsibility of the members and organisers themselves. However, we do advise that all group events are held in a public location and not a member’s home until all group members are familiar and comfortable with having those individuals in their home. When you start an event there is an option to select if people can attend by invite, only friends or any member.

Please be careful and protect yourself at all times. Please ensure drinks are not left unattended and always socialise with people around in a public establishment for your safety until you are confident that you know and can trust everyone in the group. Always ensure you let someone know where you are and who you are with and always arrange alternative transport if drinking in any measure. If you are getting a taxi please always ensure it is a registered fully licensed vehicle and driver. You can check this license number on the number plate, inside the vehicle and on the driver’s photo ID page.

We ask that all our members are cautious and make sure that themselves and other group members are never in a potentially dangerous situation so that everyone can have a safe and enjoyable experience.
