I am your local editor and have lived in Colchester for 12 years. I am a born and bred Essex girl.
It would be great to find out who else is out there. I have met a few local gransnetters but would love others to say hi.

I am also an Essex girl now living on Mersea Island. I have only just joined the ranks of grand-parenthood as my first grandchild was born last July. Good to find gransnet and am enjoying it very much. Currently holidaying on St Lucia but will be back home Friday ? hope the weather is being kind at home!!

Hi Pittcity

I am in Colchester and believe we have met up once before.

If you and others would like to meet up again, that would be great.

The piatto cafe is, I think, a good choice.

Let's see if anyone else is interested. Shall we.?

I would like to meet at the Piatto!

Victoria08 and Tingleydancer, why don't you suggest a date and time to suit you and we will see who else can come along?
Would you like to make it a regular thing?

Victoria08 Thu 04-Feb-16 09:35:38

I can make a Tuesday at 12, or Wednesday at 2pm.

I am in town on those days.

Thanks for letting me know about the Colchester meet up. I will wait to see what date/time is decided and hopefully will be able to come along.

Hi, I will try to come too if can. It was nice when met three of you recently. The park in summer would be nice to meet too. See you soon !

Tuesday 16th February at noon for lunch in the Piatto cafe.
Who can come?

Victoria08 Mon 08-Feb-16 14:29:26

Anyone else coming on 16th Feb.

marshmarigold132 Mon 08-Feb-16 14:35:17

All being well hope to be there on 16th.

I should be able to make the sixteenth.

Pittcity Mon 08-Feb-16 17:03:50

sunshine12 and tingleydancer have pm'd and told me that they can come.
It is half term and we are decorating, so I will try to escape to join you.
Perhaps whoever is there first should try to nab space for at least 6!!

Lovely lunch with sunshine12, TendringGran, marshmarigold123 and Victoria08 today.

Are there any new gransnetters in the CO postcode area?
