Hello Gransnet Kent!
I'm a new member and would love to get to know others. I'm based in Thanet. Anyone else out there?

Hi everyone, been on main Gransnet a while - just found Gransnet Kent. I am in Thanet too! I wonder Circe1961 and Carolbee5 could we arrange a meet-up? Do you know the Garden Centre in Hereson Road (Ramsgate/Broadstairs borders) - a good place for a coffee! Are you interested?

Hi! I'm in central Maidstone and wonder if there's anyone who might fancy chatting to a rock music fan? smile

I've checked out the Kent local site a few times but there's never anything on there. Clicking on things to do in Kent brings up the same blank page for each section. sad

Hello ninathenana

I have lived in Maidstone for over 25 years and have long since come to the conclusion that pretty much most of the entertainment is designed for youngsters who want all-night drinking, clubs and fast food style eating. Since becoming a mature divorcee a little while ago, there's precious little for people in my situation.

Wherever you are in Kent, I hope you find something other than bicycle clubs and walking groups! I'm also a young-at-heart someone, looking for some inspiration! hmm

Hi I'm trying to arrange a meet up in Ramsgate and have sent private messages to 3 people so far. I'm sure I saw a message from someone who lived near Whitstable but can't find it now - if it's you please send me a private message. Also anyone else who could easily get to Ramsgate. Thanks

Hi everyone,
Four of us from Thanet managed to get together last week for a coffee. It was great and we have fixed another date in May. Please contact me if you would like to join us. I see mine was the last post on here on the 21 March and there are few posts since the first on 15 Nov 2014 !!! I am not surprised, I find it incredibly difficult to get on to this page! There has to be a simpler way. I am going to contact Gransnet now. Do contact me if you are in easy reach of either Ramsgate or Canterbury and we can arrange another coffee meet.

Hi chaps - I am back on the site now as editor and hoping to get things going again.........I am rummaging with the site and its access etc so we should be more open and accessible soon. How brilliant that you have managed to get things going already! Have you made another date yet? If so, let me know - if not, let's do it!

I am close to blue water if anyone fancies a meet up there, with the oppodtunity of a bit of shopping thrown in.

Addis49 Thu 17-Nov-16 16:50:37

Just joined and I am near Canterbury.

jen53 Sun 12-Feb-17 11:24:05

Been on Gransnet a while but only just bothered to look for a local group. I've lived in Biddenden (mid-point between Canterbury and Maidstone) for three years but formerly from Chislehurst. I'm working PT as a Specialist Teacher and have four granddaughters aged 5 and under.

ninathenana Sun 12-Feb-17 11:41:47

Hi jen I'm on Sheppey. I'm retired and have two grandsons.
Four under fives, that must be -fun- chaos if you manage to all get together smile

silverlining48 Sun 12-Feb-17 13:22:07

I live in north kent, is anyone nearby? Have previously Suggested meeting at bluewater to combine a shopping trip with a meet up but kent is large and most who have responded are at the other end of the county. Would be nice though.

grandMattie Tue 21-Feb-17 17:27:57

I'm in Sandwich - Thanet is a doddle. Love to join you for coffee one day. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are best for me.

Primmie Sat 25-Feb-17 17:48:42

I live in Teston, approx 4 miles from Maidstone

silverlining48 Sat 25-Feb-17 21:39:25

We have a Meeting arranged at bluewater next month for anyone who is interested. Details on amother post but Off hand think its the 16 th, thursday 11.30 in waterstones cafe. All welcome.

jen53 Sun 26-Feb-17 12:10:00

Really bad at checking these local posts. Probably because I don't receive them automatically like the ordinary GN posts. Not sure how to organise that tbh. Might try the icons at the bottom.
I'm not too far from Bluewater so might try getting to the meet up there next month. Would that be Thursday March 2nd or the 9th though? Or have I got the wrong month completely and missed it?
Loving having 4 granddaughters btw.
