Hello everyone! Is there any other GNs living in the area of Staines? I would be interested in meeting for a coffee and chat but dont drive and have poor mobility so it needs to be within reach of public transport sorry!

Deedaa Sun 03-Jun-18 20:40:31

I'm in Bracknell which isn't too far away. i drive but I'm a bit limited in whether my husband is well enough to leave.

Greenfinch Sun 03-Jun-18 20:54:51

I could get to Staines by train and would like to meet up but it depends on when as I have a few commitments.

HAZBEEN Mon 04-Jun-18 16:33:26

Hello ladies. Have you any dates in mind to meet? Perhaps towards the end of the month?

Deedaa Mon 04-Jun-18 22:42:23

At the moment Wednesdays and Fridays are out for me.

HAZBEEN Tue 05-Jun-18 15:04:28

How about Thursday 14th June or Tuesday 19th June or would the next week be better?

Greenfinch Thu 07-Jun-18 12:04:19

I can never make Mondays or Tuesdays so Thursday would be a good day for me generally but unfortunately I can't make the 14th or the 21st.However, I could make 28th if that is any good but if the 14 th is good for you, please go ahead and I will endeavour to join you next time.

Deedaa Thu 07-Jun-18 22:31:56

I can't do Tuesday 19th. Could do 28th though.

HAZBEEN Thu 07-Jun-18 23:15:42

So thats settled then 38th June it is! Shall we meet in Cafe Nero on the high Street?

HAZBEEN Thu 07-Jun-18 23:16:51

Oops forgot to say what time! How about 11am or would afternoons suit you better?

Greenfinch Fri 08-Jun-18 08:09:37

28 June at 11am is fine.
I don't know Staines.
Is the High Street near the train station ?

Deedaa Fri 08-Jun-18 22:04:14

T must liaise with DD, she lived in Staines when she was at university and will know where I can park.

HAZBEEN Fri 08-Jun-18 22:12:51

I will PM you both with a map if you like.

Greenfinch Sat 09-Jun-18 08:48:26

Thañks Hazbeen. That would be helpful.

Welshwife Sat 09-Jun-18 09:07:28

I lived for years within a few miles of Staines - and later DD and her father both worked in Staines - and I just cannot get used to the ‘on Thames’ addition.!
Have a lovely time together.

I live about 4 miles away and hopefully can make 28th. Son visiting from abroad at that time so all a bit unknown.
Parking is plentiful, all town centre car parks in easy reach of High St which is pedestrianised.
Greenfinch the station is about 10 minutes from the High St, you can walk through pedestrian tunnel, then through car park and into High St. Nero’s is about half way down.
Hope to see you all there.

HAZBEEN Sat 09-Jun-18 09:59:38

HAZBEEN Sat 23-Jun-18 10:00:19

Hope to see you all at Cafe Neros at 11!

Greenfinch Wed 27-Jun-18 23:00:05

Purpledaffodil Thu 28-Jun-18 14:13:55

How lovely to meet today in Staines-upon-Thames! Or St Aines as we call it😁
L to R we have Deedaa, Purpledaffodil, Greenfinch, Hazbeen and Mamissimo.
We were discussing, amongst many other topics, what mental images we have of some GN posters. Do we meet your expectations? 😘
