This site looks a bit sad, nobody joining in like all the others. Come on portsmouth.

Does anyone else live near or in Portsmouth? I live in Fareham and have recently moved from the Midlands.

I've just found this site, I live in Fareham but look after my 2 year old grandson in Portsmouth three days a week, it would be nice to meet other nans/grans in the area.

Hi, I'm the new editor for the Portsmouth page and I live in Portsmouth. I'm not a gran but I have a lot of concerns relating to being a gran! I hope to organise some get together soon if people can let me know what they like doing. Cheers! Maricar Jagger

Hello ButtonLiz and Tirednan, I live in Fareham too! Would be lovely to get to know you both. I haven't lived here long and want to make new friends. I am a granny to a little granddaughter who's almost one, it would be great to compare notes and also learn more about each other.

Hi, I'm in Fareham. It would be good to meet up for coffee and exchange information about the area. Just a suggestion, Maricar -- how about a Saturday morning initially as some are with grandchildren during the week. Fareham centre would be convenient for most. The coffee lounge in Fernham Hall is accessible and easy to locate near the library.....

Portsmouth Wed 14-May-14 19:08:37

I know the Ferneham Hall very well! I'll check my diary and find a suitable date or would anyone be interested in combining it with a show at the Hall? Perhaps a children's show for your grandkids? I'm not retired, as I said, so I work during the week, unless I have a cheeky day off!

blueskies Wed 14-May-14 20:45:26

Thank you. Just coffee is fine for me.

Libby156 Thu 22-May-14 18:21:44

Hello everyone, it would be great to all meet up in Fareham and get to know each other. Hopefully we can organise something soon!

I don't know Fareham that well, I moved here with my husband about eighteen months ago but unfortunately lost him in January. it would be great to make some new friends. smile

Are there any Grans in Waterlooville that would like to meet up for coffee and a chat.

Portsmouth Wed 13-Aug-14 13:14:52

Hi Libby, just found an exciting event next week that maybe useful for other grans to attend too - The Fareham Arts Trail!

Terri Thu 27-Nov-14 19:18:54

I live in Southsea. No one seems to be on the chatting line. I've been hoping to start something - see post from August? smile

Portsmouth Tue 02-Dec-14 18:35:47

Why don't various people in the area suggest time and place?

I'm in Southsea

Terri in Waterlooville

blueskies and Libby156 can meet up in Fareham!

Any good?

Terri Fri 05-Dec-14 17:27:03

Can meet Southsea anytime.

Portsmouth Tue 06-Jan-15 21:16:13

I hope everyone has had a good holiday. Southsea was calm and relaxing. How about a meet-up soon at The Tea Tray on Osborne Road? We can plan the first one on Saturday 24 January at 3pm and see how we get on? Is that good?

Portsmouth Sun 11-Jan-15 21:28:24

Actually I just found I have to be out of town. Can we change the date to 17 January please? Is anyone interested in coming?

Terri Tue 13-Jan-15 09:47:13

Saturday's are not good for me,my husband is away all week and I like to spend my time with him at the weekends sorry.

Welshpat Wed 14-Jan-15 12:53:16

Saturday not good for me either. Terri and I are now in contact and I,like Terri, would like to get this group really going. Anybody else in Waterlooville/Havant area?
