Hi everyone, I just wondered if anyone would be able to meet nearer Southwold one time? I just see that Moonshine lives there and due to family commitments has trouble getting out of the house for too long a period. Could be somewhere near,poss Lowestoft?

I would be happy to go there and have a cuppa/lunch whatever.

We could also do another Beccles meet, as that is a better location for some I know.

Please let us know what you all think. Hope to see you all soon.

Hi Seacliff,

It would be lovely to meet up again. I'm not too sure but isn't Beccles nearer Southwold than Lowestoft ??

I could get to Lowestoft though if it's easier for others. I was thinking about the idea of meeting in a local cafe but feel it might not be the best place if there's more than four of us as its a small shop.

Could we try for a meet up in May ?
Be good to hear from you all.

Hi Eggybread

I personally am still happy to meet at that cafe we mentioned last time in Beccles.

It's just that Moonshine, who lives in Southwold, says she struggles to get as far as Beccles. So I was sort of wondering if any people near Southwold fancies meeting there for a cuppa at least. You're right about Lowestoft, it is almost same distance as Beccles so please ignore that idea!

May would be better for me too. Not Mondays or Tuesdays if poss.

Hi all
I would prefer Beccles but could possibly manage Southwold. May would be great and I can do any day with enough warning. Have just discovered if all goes well I will be a great-nanny later in the year so feeling a bit shell shocked! Looking forward to seeing you all.

I'd love to join you ladies. Beccles or Southwold are both fine for me.

Eggybread72 Fri 21-Apr-17 17:38:43

Would everyone be happy to meet in Beccles in May ?

If so lets say a Thursday and see how many that suits ?

Be great to meet everyone !

seacliff Fri 21-Apr-17 17:43:26

Yes please. I can only do Thursday 18th or 25th May. We may even get more of us this time smile

Eggybread72 Fri 21-Apr-17 19:36:42

That's great Seacliff, I can do the 18th 😊

Anyone else ?

Both dates ok by me. Looking forward to it. I hope the new Ed will be able to join us too!

Hi there - lovely to meet you all - I'm certainly going to come along to Beccles on May 18th.

Where would you like to meet, and what time would suit? I am based quite far south of Beccles, so late morning is easiest for me.

Looking forward to my first Gransnet meet-up! smile

Hi Sunshine,

Great to hear from you. Be lovely to meet you on the 18th May, ( is everyone ok with that day?).

Last time we met at the Kings Head which is in the centre of Beccles,how do people feel about meeting there again? Although it gets busy I think it's one of the easier places to meet if there are more than say four of us. Also they don't mind if you stay longer chatting whereas smaller cafes tend to want you to go once you've had your food.

We met at 11.30 last time so would that suit everyone on the 18th ?

Really looking forward to meeting you all.

That's fine with me Eggybread. Can't wait. Lets hope we get the big table again!
Glad you can join us Sunshine.

lonniefrances Tue 25-Apr-17 08:21:32

That's fine with me, see you all then.

Not going to be able to make this Beccles meetup.
However there are plans afoot on the Ipswich pages for a meetup there which I hope to be able to attend.

Hello - I'm in Ipswich. Moved there 14 months ago from Woodbridge. I can make the meeting on 18th May. Looking forward to meeting you all.

Eggybread72 Wed 03-May-17 13:06:29

Hi Lupin, lovely to hear from you and looking forward to meeting you on the 18th may.
Sorry Pittcity you won't be able to join us but hope it goes well at the Ipswich meeting.
Melanie be great if you could join us!

sunshine234 Thu 04-May-17 13:56:18

Hi - its Melanie (your new Ed) here - yes! I am joining you on May 18. Looking forward to meeting everyone. smile

Lupin Thu 04-May-17 23:10:22

Just to say that I'd be happy to go to a meeting in Ipswich too if that can be arranged. Best wishes.

seacliff Fri 05-May-17 12:02:55

Hi Yes 18th May at Kings Head Beccles is fine with me too. I think 11 30 is good - no later as it gets very busy. Look forward to meeting you all.

sunshine234 Mon 08-May-17 12:39:57

Let's talk about a meeting near to Ipswich/in Ipswich when we are together on 18th!

I'm just getting to grips with the GN Suffolk twitter account - I'll mention this meetup today. Really looking forward to meeting you all.

Pittcity Mon 08-May-17 14:30:07

lexigran is in Ipswich and is happy to organise a meetup there. She is over on the Ipswich forum here bit.ly/2pWdr8K.
There is no editor in Ipswich so I thought I'd try to spread the word in overlapping GN areas! (I am the Essex editor)

sunshine234 Tue 09-May-17 18:28:42

Oh thank you for letting me know - perhaps we can both go to the Ipswich meetup? Hope so!

lonniefrances Wed 17-May-17 08:07:25

I would also be able to make an Ipswich meet up, in fact it would be nearer than beccles. See you all tomorrow, looking forward to it.

seacliff Wed 17-May-17 12:43:47

See you all tomorrow .... should be a fair few of us.
