Anyone within striking distance of Guildford want to meet up? Long time ahead but what about Friday 18th March about 11:00 for coffee and if we are still nattering it can turn into lunch! Top floor restaurant of House of Fraser?
Any takers??

Hello All,
I'm so sorry, I won't be able to make the meeting after all. I'm truly disappointed, but I have to work that day😔
Please do let me know when you are going to meet again and I would love to come along. It definitely sounds like it's going to be fun.
Have a great meeting and please do let me know the date of the next one.

Apologies from me too I'm afraid. My son, who has been living back at home for a few months, has found somewhere to live with friends and is moving out on Friday. I will need to be help to help load etc. Ironically he is moving into Guildford!

Maybe next time and I am really sorry for the late call.

Apologies from me too as explained on the main thread. (Greenfinch)

Belated apologies, I have a bad sore throat and cold and couldn't inflict that on anyone - should have let you know this morning but was hoping to come until the last minute. Would love to know how it went and if there are any plans for another meet up. Hope you had a good chat!

Well two of us met up and enjoyed a two hour chat over coffee and cake! Amazed to find so many similarities in our life history.. both of us had parent from non UK background, both spent childhood in E Africa and attended boarding school! We both said we would like to meet again lets look at diaries again after Easter and hope that more can join the chat next time.

Good to meet you Freemeupforfun grin
