Hello everyone - who else in in Harrow?

Grannynise Sun 24-Aug-14 16:42:43

I am smile

Starling Sun 24-Aug-14 18:07:44

Hello Grannynise! I've offered to be the local editor and have started inputting events and groups. Feel free to add some more! Can you recommend anything you go to?

Charleygirl Sun 24-Aug-14 18:58:32

I also live there.

Starling Sun 24-Aug-14 22:43:19

Hello Charleygirl! (Or should that be Hey there....?!) Well that's three of us now! Any suggestions for the local events or groups?

Charleygirl Sun 24-Aug-14 22:48:45

I have a feeling that three may be the max, it is two more than I expected, I thought that I was on my own!

Starling Sun 24-Aug-14 22:59:15

Well Harrow means the whole borough so maybe there are people on here from Pinner, Stanmore, Kenton, Hatch End etc etc too?

mrshat Mon 25-Aug-14 20:34:43

I'm in Watford - not too far from Harrow. Can get to the shopping centre in about 20 minutes, so if there was a get together ...............grin

Ooh hello Mrs hat - I am sure we can poach borrow you from Hertfordshire! Do you have a favourite café locally?

Grannynise Tue 26-Aug-14 18:30:36

Hello Starling! I'm new to gransnet and not yet in the habit of checking it frequently, so I apologise for not replying sooner. It would be great to meet up - how about one of the many cafes in Pinner?

Starling Tue 26-Aug-14 19:31:20

Hello again Grannynise! Pinner is fine with me - how is Pinner for others? Is central Harrow better for you Mrs hat? Charleygirl - are you ready to meet up locally?

Charleygirl Tue 26-Aug-14 21:47:42

Starling yes, but I cannot walk far, by far I mean more than 200 yards!

I think that the cafes are better in Pinner as opposed to central Harrow. They are a bit sparse there.

Charleygirl - where can you get to most easily?

I should just add that I am in Cornwall from Friday just for a week so I think it had better be after 5th Sept if that is OK with you and Grannynise and mrshat ?

I can currently do 8th, 9th, 10th, or 11th - are these dates convenient?

Harris & Hoole is very near some bus stops.

Grannynise Wed 27-Aug-14 18:55:31

I can do the 11th but not until 11 o'clock. Sorry, I'm away on the 8th and 9th and looking after my DGD on the 10th as it's a school training day.

Starling Wed 27-Aug-14 19:23:25

11am on the 11th would be fine with me.

Charleygirl Wed 27-Aug-14 21:27:44

Sorry, I can only do the 8th and the 10th. On the 11th I have an appointment at RNOH Stanmore early pm and I have to be there early because parking although free, is nightmare.

If we ever find a compatible date, Pinner would be great- I could park in the main car park in a road whose name escapes me, but is opposite that yummy mummy shop.

Starling Thu 28-Aug-14 16:01:55

Ok, moving onto the following week / fortnight..... I can do the Mon Tue Wed Thurs ie 15,16,17,18 EXCEPT that I think I have a floating communal birthday lunch somewhere in there, and then 22, 23, 24, 25.

I hope mrshat can get to Pinner because that's where we seem to be meeting!

Alternatively I suppose I can do the weekends if this helps at all, so 13/14, 20/21, 27/28. Although Pinner is quite quiet on a Sunday and probably quite busy on a Saturday.

Starling Thu 28-Aug-14 23:33:57

Ok going on holiday tomorrow so please agree a date and I'll find out when I come back! But don't meet up without me or I'll have to sulk!

Margsus Mon 01-Sep-14 18:58:32

Hello Harrow ladies! I live in Stanmore, and would certainly be up for a get-together

Charleygirl Wed 03-Sep-14 11:36:06

I thought that I would get the ball rolling. I am available Thursday 17th, Friday 18th September and then Wednesday the 24th and Thursday the 25th of September. Any takers?

Is the coffee shop at the top end of Bridge Street, near Lidl's and on that side?

Margsus Wed 03-Sep-14 18:49:20

Can I muscle in on your get-together please?

mrshat Wed 03-Sep-14 20:10:28

Hello Harrow! This all sounds very exciting but I guess I will not be able to join you in September! I work 2 days a week anyway and with other commitments on Mondays and Fridays,Tuesdays are my best days. However, as we are away for a couple of weeks in September, and with visitors coming and grandchildren there is no time!!! So, if not this time, maybe next time and I hope it all goes well flowers

Hermione Wed 03-Sep-14 21:05:03

Can I join in I'm not far away in Ealing? If I'm available on the day you all decide on.

Margsus Thu 04-Sep-14 06:36:50

I can do 15th, 16th, 17th or 18th Sept if that's any good?

Charleygirl Thu 04-Sep-14 08:21:12

Can I narrow it down to the 17th or 18th Sept? That is two of us available at present, Margsus and myself.
