Any of you ladies in my area?

I know that one of you is but can't remember your name! I live on the border between all these counties near enough so can do Swindon, Marlborough, Hungerford, Newbury way if anyone is around?

Currently feeling rather unwell and lonely, mostly due to circumstances beyond my control sad x

Hey lottagelady,

Sorry to hear you've been feeling unwell flowers

We're sure there are lots of lovely gransnetters nearby who would love to meet. cafecupcake

Thanks for responding Natasha - I do hope so, am feeling rather isolated at the moment, very long story though! x

I live in East Berks lottagelady so not very convenient but I could manage Newbury. Others will respond soon I am sure.

I’m in Swindon ? Any others fancy a coffee somewhere ? X

lottagelady Tue 06-Nov-18 20:32:34

Absolutely Sheenah!

Have my Mum here this week but am definitely up for a meet up after the weekend!

I’m in Swindon too and would be happy to meet up,
especially as I only moved here 11 months ago and don’t know many people yet.

I live on the Swindon side of Abingdon and have been to GN meetings at Swindon before.

We met in the cafe at Dunelm last time. It is in the retail park opposite Sainsbury's. I have yet to go into central Swindon and reach my destination less than half an hour late, although I do now have sat nav on my mobile phone so it may now be easier.

Hi I’m in Swindon as well, and don’t know many people, so will be happy to meet up.

Marmight Thu 08-Nov-18 22:03:07

I'm just south of Cirencester so within easy reach of Swindon!

M0nica Sat 10-Nov-18 07:55:07

We have talked about it. Now lets set a date and a venue.

I suggest the Dunelm cafe as I do not know really know Swindon, except the a420/Oxford side.

Suggested dates are: week beginning Monday, 19th November. I can manage Monday, Tuesday, Thursday.

Marmight Sat 10-Nov-18 14:32:00

I can only do tuesday that week ....Dunelm seems to be easy for everyone

M0nica Mon 12-Nov-18 14:46:07

Marmight. I suggested, you replied, but nobody else. Is it worth just 2 of us meeting. We might hate each other on sight shock

Marmight Tue 13-Nov-18 22:08:56

Perhaps we should wait until we have a quorum, just in case! 😂

M0nica Tue 13-Nov-18 23:03:52


Deepem Thu 15-Nov-18 07:22:25

I'm in Stratton St Margaret Swindon, so 2 mins from Dunelm but can only do wed/Thurs next week. Nice to know there's a few of us around here. 🙂

M0nica Thu 15-Nov-18 09:00:38

Right that is three of us. How many makes a quorum? Four or five. Or shall we just fix a date, announce it and see if that brings anyone out of the woods and if there is only three of us, then so be it.

How about Tuesday, 27th November at 10.30am? That will give others a chance to rally round the flag!

Marmight Fri 16-Nov-18 17:47:01

Not absolutely sure about 27th. Will know after the weekend so will be back to confirm or otherwise ..

Marmight Tue 20-Nov-18 14:04:26

I can do the 27th!
Any other takers? Foxy, Lottage, Bcooke, Sheenah???

bcooke Tue 20-Nov-18 19:26:02

Sorry, I can’t make 27th. Was wondering if town centre or designer centre would be good for any future meetings as easier to get to for those travelling by train or bus?

M0nica Tue 20-Nov-18 19:28:46

I would be coming by car and have never visited central Swindon and reached my destination, so would need somewhere easy to find and with car parking.

Marmight Tue 20-Nov-18 20:22:03

Well, that's us back to 2 again! Back to the drawing board?

M0nica Tue 20-Nov-18 20:28:15

Shall we risk hating each other on sight?

Marmight Tue 20-Nov-18 21:05:06

Aaw! Go on then, let's live dangerously! See you upstairs in the cafe!
