Okay, who's up for a coffee and cake in April (avoiding school holidays)? cupcake I'm sure I can smell Spring in the air now smile

sounds good to me as long as it's not a day for work

Always up for coffee and cake Sandy, no encouragement needed. smile

Evenstar Tue 11-Mar-14 08:23:27

Would love to. It just depends where it is as I rely on buses etc x

Sandy217 Wed 12-Mar-14 09:48:00

Where abouts are you Evenstar, or ... where can you get to?

Am new on here , would like to make friends. Coffee & Cake sounds ideal. Where do you meet.?

Sandy217 Tue 18-Mar-14 09:47:58

Hi Silverlady and welcome. We've not managed a get together yet but I thought of somewhere fairly central. Yandles at Martock is an interesting hobby/crafts/gifts place that has a coffee shop so I thought there for a first time.

How about week commencing 7th April? Can we have a show of hands please if that week is ok, and can you state your preference, weekday or weekend?

All really informal - no best frocks wink just nice to meet other like-minded people in our area and a chance to make new friends.

SueD Tue 18-Mar-14 16:50:31

Hi Sandy - can't make 8th or 9th of that week but the rest of the week is OK including weekends either side.

Sandy217 Tue 25-Mar-14 11:22:49

Hi ladies - how about Thursday 10th April for a get together? Same place as before - Yandles .. Say 11.30am? Then we can either just have coffee and cake, or coffee and lunch - whichever tickles our fancy smile (or both????)

It will be great to meet you. If you'd like an adjustment on the time, please say.

See you soon

10th sounds good to me. Does anyone need a lift - Ilminster area?

Evenstar Fri 28-Mar-14 16:10:18

Hi Sorry, only just seen this post. We're in Taunton and don't have transport unfortunately. My daughter has a museum activity session on the 10th, otherwise I would have seen if we could get over on the bus. Enjoy though and have a cake for me. smile

Hi Sandy, would love to come but no transport from Weston-Super-Mare. Many thanks for reply. Hopefully meet some other time.

gimmer Tue 01-Apr-14 13:01:43

I will come. If you stick to that date I will get someone to stand in for the lambing on that day. Please don't change again.

Sandy217 Wed 02-Apr-14 09:38:40

Won't change Gimmer smile

Sandy217 Fri 04-Apr-14 09:31:23

Still up and running for the 10th. Anyone else want to come? SueD and I will be there and it would be great to meet anyone else who'd like to come along. All informal, chatty and friendly smile

Sandy217 Wed 09-Apr-14 17:56:43

Looking forward to meeting up tomorrow. See you at Yandles at 11.30am

Sandy smile

Well it was lovely to meet SueD and Gimmer (Lesley) today. We had a lovely chat, coffee cake AND lunch! (I did a bit of shopping afterwards too - bought some wool to knit me a jumper with, if I start now it might be ready for next winter!).

Do try and join us next time if you can - we can arrange for a meet closer to the majority of people if you let us know of somewhere suitable (i.e. with coffee and cake or a nice lunch). Have a think.

Sandy smile
