Hello, Some people feel that our meetup in Sizewell may a bit far for people who live in West Suffolk - so shall we organise another we meet up somewhere more convenient for you?

Good idea. I live near Bury and can't do Thursday!

sunshine234 Mon 05-Jun-17 21:43:03

Bury sounds good to me!

Happy to come over, are you thinking of another dog walk plus families?

sunshine234 Wed 14-Jun-17 17:17:59

I'm happy to do either - we could meet for a coffee in Bury (Wednesday Market is always a pleasure!) Or we could go for a walk - but I don't know any dog walking locations in the west.

Any suggestions?

How about Needham Market - Alder Carr Farm.

At today's meetup most people thought that would be a good, central meet-up point for people from East and West.

Ickworth is a good place to walk dogs. What is there at Needham Market? Its not an area I know.

Needham Market is about 30 mins along the A14 from Bury - there's a lovely farm shop and cafe called Alder Carr Farm there -

whoops! link to Alder Carr here :

Gners suggested we could all meet there for a meetup so that we are in the centre of the county of Suffolk. It would be easier for you, and for people based in the East to get together.

What do you all think?

We could set a date for July or August - I would book a table as it is really popular at Alder Carr ( cos it is so delicious!)

I'd like to come. I'm free most of the time!

sunshine234 Fri 14-Jul-17 10:13:17

hi there suerey123! great to hear from you. I'm really glad you are coming!

So...meetup dates!

How about Alder Carr Farm (Needham Market) on Wednesday 26 or Friday July 28? Around 11.30?
Or same time, same place in late August or early September?

I think you work on Thursdays Lexigran, which is why I have suggested Weds or Fri...

I'd be happy to join in, early September would suit me best.

lexigran Sat 22-Jul-17 21:57:36

I can do Wed 26th.... or August some time ?
I don't work on Thursdays, I look after my granddaughter but the days vary !!!

sunshine234 Wed 26-Jul-17 09:56:28

Shall we go for September?

seacliff Wed 26-Jul-17 10:54:42

Sounds like a good place. I can't do Mondays or Tuesdays, also not Friday 15 sept, apart from that most dates. How about friday 1st sept or 8th sept? Are these any good for you all?

lonniefrances Tue 01-Aug-17 13:01:40

I can do 1st but not 8th.

sunshine234 Mon 21-Aug-17 13:47:39

Looks like most people can make the Beccles meet-up. But it is far from Bury, so:

Sueray123 - can you make it to Beccles? Would you like a lift?

GardeningGran - are you still on for a meet up near Bury? This can still be arranged!!

Hope to hear from you soon

lonniefrances Thu 24-Aug-17 12:15:14

Don't think I will make it to Beccles after all. Have a good time all of you.

seacliff Fri 25-Aug-17 06:19:04

Oh that's a shame Lonnie. Would you all please let us know if you are coming on the 8th? Maybe we should consider changing date ?? What do you all think.

seacliff Fri 25-Aug-17 08:07:45

Sorry for confusion, the date we have at present is 7th Sept, not 8th.
