Having had some really good get togethers shall we try to keep things going?
Maybe the CMK John Lewis café wasn’t the best place for first timers to identify us so how about somewhere smaller or having a table booked?
Any suggestions? Camphill has a friendly café; any other ideas?

Hi there Treebee et al, been away but absolutely why not meet up. We should keep things going because MK is always changing and interesting. However you can’t have enough lovely GNs pick a date and I agree John Lewis is not the best place to meet . Too small and too crowded. Maybe sometime in the middle of Feb. At an accessible cafe for bus and car.

Camp Hill is friendly with better cake than JL and parking is free.
An excellent cause to support too. (And amazing home baked bread from their shop)
Any takers?

Treebee Fri 08-Feb-19 19:00:25

Let’s say Camphill then. We can book a table in Gransnet’s name so we can be identified. We used to meet on a Wednesday but I have a regular commitment on that day now. Would a Monday or Friday suit?

Hi all, can meet Monday or Friday any week in March so how about the 4th or 8th to get the ball rolling ?

Treebee Mon 18-Feb-19 19:19:44

I could do Friday 8th.

Nannyanny Wed 27-Feb-19 18:28:45

See you in Camphill on the 8th. How does 10 am suit?

Ah thanks. Will try to come another time if meeting is in central MK.

Would come but not able to get there ‘till about 11.15 on a Friday. Hope to join you all again soon.

I would like to meet if that's ok?.... If, nearer the time you'd let me know how to recognise you, would be great 😀

Treebee Fri 01-Mar-19 11:04:05

Gosh, a lot has happened since I last checked this thread!
I’ve booked a table at Camphill café at 10 am next Friday, 8th March.
(Is it possible to change the thread title to add the date?)
I’ve booked it for 6, speculatively, in the name of Gransnet, so just ask the staff to show you to the table. There shouldn’t be any identification problems then!

Just throwing my 3pennyworth in, when we had our first meet up someone brought something recognisable to put on the table I think it was a small yellow rucksack so the table was instantly recognisable. We’re still meeting every month after 3/4 yrs. Hope your meetup goes well.

I hope to come along on the 8th. I actually live just over the border in Northamptonshire near Olney and wondered if anyone else might be from this neck of the woods too?

Soupy Sat 02-Mar-19 22:47:09

Charliebrown; I'm just a few miles from Olney and DD used to live in Bozeat.
Not sure yet if I'm going on the 8th.

NannyHill Mon 04-Mar-19 12:49:48

I’m new to granset and live in MK would love to meet up and meet some more grans. Is it ok to come along.

Nannyanny Mon 04-Mar-19 12:53:31

Please do join us. Looking forward to meeting you.

Treebee Mon 04-Mar-19 15:54:11

Yes, do join us NannyHill.
I make that 6 of us, possibly 7 so far.

NannyHill Wed 06-Mar-19 21:33:31


See you Friday

Treebee Thu 07-Mar-19 15:42:56

See you all tomorrow. Let’s hope for some sunshine!

Shirleyw Thu 07-Mar-19 16:15:58

Change of plan for me im afraid.....supporting a group to Aylesbury at work....have a good get together tomorrow morning.

Treebee Fri 08-Mar-19 13:12:24

Such a good meet this morning. Short on sunshine but long on chat. Let’s do it again soon!

Happiyogi Fri 08-Mar-19 13:22:14

Yes, it was a lovely morning. I've just heard that today is International Women's Day, which seems appropriate!

charliebrown Fri 08-Mar-19 13:35:26

I agree it was a lovely morning and great venue. Hope to meet up again soon.
