Hi everyone,
I'm new and want to say hello. I'm a refugee from Sagazone which closed down today. Are there any members who live near Barnet Herts?

Ariadne Wed 27-Feb-13 18:40:37

Hello! There are a few Saga people kicking about here - keep your eyes open, or try a search?

Welcome aura we are a very friendly group. Sorry I am at the other end of the country but there is bound to be someone closer.

What ho, aura! My family seat (!) isn't a million kilometres from Barnet - in New Southgate. But I no longer live there!

aura Wed 27-Feb-13 18:43:27

How do you find out Ariadne where people are from?

nanaej Wed 27-Feb-13 18:44:35

Hi Aura good to meet you.. I am south of M25 so not very close! Hope you enjoy gransnet.

Also how do I get my name in blue?

Go to My Gransnet and fill in your profile, aura. I think that's how it works hmm

Hi aura I'm in Ealing so not too far away... welcome.... to 'blue' your name so your profile is visible to other gransnetters , go to your profile and you can click on 'make yourself visible to all gransnetters..
If you want to see where someone is from as long as they are 'blued' you can look at their profile..

Ariadne Wed 27-Feb-13 18:51:17

aura there isn't a list of where people live, though there are several threads about where people live. Try searching (on the right).

To get your name in blue you have to follow the whole registration bit OK, I can't remember, but I bet everyone else can. You just watch,*aura*, the advice will start flooding in!

Hi aura - sorry - I'm in Scotland but welcome anyway smile

Welcome aura. I'm in Leicestershire but we all meet on here to chat so it doesn't really matter where we live. There are occasional meet ups organised though. Or you can join people in Lil's Bar - but beware. smile

He has started another thread about a campaign to end loneliness in Barnet.
