How far south east I am in Norfolk smile

Notsogrand Sat 25-Aug-12 19:16:28

I'm on the south coast opposite the Isle if Wight Nellie. I'm happy to travel a bit and meet up somewhere in the middle, I guess we'll have to see who else comes forward and where they are.

Whereabouts in Norfolk are you? I lived in Hellesdon just north of Norwich for quite a while, then in Long Stratton on the A140 for a few years before moving here. Lovely county smile

Notsogrand, I'm in West Sussex. Not far from you?

Notsogrand Sat 25-Aug-12 19:22:53

Not all that far Daisy, I'm in Hythe on the other side of Southampton Water from your end. I used to live in Hastings which was even closer to you!

Littlenellie Sat 25-Aug-12 19:24:12

Just off the A47 between kings Lynn and Norwich, 30 miles from each, * notso* near swaffham,don't think we have very many GNs here,but yes Norfolk is lovely.
Sadly I probably wouldn't get much further than Essex,sad

Nellie, I`m in Boston, I`d be quite partial to a meet up in Kings Lynn, if you`d fancy it?

Littlenellie Sat 25-Aug-12 19:43:52

number that sounds good shall we try and get something going for the East of England,kings Lynn would be brilliant [ smile]

numberplease Sat 25-Aug-12 19:50:55

Fine by me Nellie!

numberplease Sat 25-Aug-12 19:51:35

But I`m niot very good at organizing, better if someone else did that bit.

Littlenellie Sat 25-Aug-12 19:55:59

The South East is BIG! I'm in North Kent, but it's quite a way from Norfolk!

Anyway, with any luck I'll be in Devon soon...yippee!

Notsogrand Sat 25-Aug-12 20:03:49

It may be worth starting a new thread Nellie for an East Anglia meet-up?

Otherwise, we'll get into a right buggers muddle! grin

Littlenellie Sat 25-Aug-12 20:09:46

Aridne that's a shame,if I was still in Essex,could have met at Bluewater...grin

I thought you meant Hythe in Kent notso - sorry, I was confused!
I'm just south of Horsham. A few suggestions for towns: Guildford has good transport links, either rail or "park & ride": Tunbridge Wells: Brighton (expensive parking): Chichester:
All depends on where most of us are based, we'll need to wait and see what comes up.

I must admit to being in two minds about this still, I've always appreciated the anonymity of GN and wonder if that will all change. It's rather like losing your virginity, you want to do it but realise that things will never be the same afterwards hmm

Any more South East GNetters out there?

jeni Sun 26-Aug-12 16:11:29

ariadne where in Devon will you be? Wil you join our group?

NannaAnna Sun 26-Aug-12 16:12:32

I'm currently in Worthing Notsogrand
(I say 'currently' because I move so often grin, but Sussex is always home)

petallus Sun 26-Aug-12 16:49:53

Well I'm South East but I live near Watford so miles away from the area you are all talking about.

Notsogrand Sun 26-Aug-12 17:34:23

'South East' is such a huge area isn't it?

Looking at this map, Guildford seems to be more or less in the middle of the area and yoga says it has good transport links. So still as a toe dipping exercise, who would be willing/able to get to a meet-up at Guildford? Or are there any other suggestions for a centralish spot?

Having just purchased a Senior Railcard grin, I'd be happy to make that journey.

JessM Sun 26-Aug-12 18:03:06

easier to get to Birmingham petallus

flump Sun 26-Aug-12 19:00:45

notso I'm only a hop, skip and a jump from you in Dibden. We could meet for a coffee or tea if you like. brew

petallus Sun 26-Aug-12 19:11:26

Yes and I've already got my tickets for Brum.

Notsogrand Sun 26-Aug-12 19:33:27

Coffee sounds great flump, have pm'd you.'re just up the road! smile
