There hasn’t been much Gransnet activity in this area in recent years, so a few of us are trying to gauge interest and maybe start a group. We will be meeting for coffee on Friday Dec 6 at 11:00 in the Teatro Lounge in Clevedon town centre - opposite B&M car park, round the corner from the Curzon cinema. There is public transport from Weston, Portishead, Nailsea and Bristol into Clevedon and free local car parks. If you are interested in joining us please let me know, so that we can make sure we get a big enough table!

Hello All. I can travel to Clevedon and would love to join you if its OK to come for just an hour or so as I have a commitment later. Is that OK? If it is how would I recognise you all, will there be something on the table?

I was just wondering the same cornergran .
Should we meet outside but how will we know, should we wear a flower or a post-it-note on our coats with our names on grin.

I live in Clevedon so it will be easy enough for me to get to the Teatro a little early, find a table and put a ‘Gransnet’ sign on it. I’ll aim to stay on the ground floor so look there first, although if it’s very busy we may have to meet upstairs. Fine to just come for an hour, Cornergran, looking forward to meeting everyone

That sounds good. See you all then.

vena11 Tue 19-Nov-19 19:36:29

That's great,looking forward to it.

And me I will hopefully be there, I have an early Dr appointment but should be able to make it. Look forward to it.

Just writing something to 'bump' this up. Looking forward to meeting you all on Thursday a week. If anyone else on here lives in WsM, I could give them a lift to this meet-up if they wish.

vena11 Tue 26-Nov-19 07:38:48

Its Friday the 6th Fernbern not Thursday and yes looking forward to meeting everyone also.

Franbern Tue 26-Nov-19 08:57:47

Thanks Venall, I have written it into my diary correctly, no idea why I typed Thursday (except that the meet-ups I used to attend in Wanstead were always on a Thursday)/

I do not live in your neck of the woods but in London and when we first met up I put a small black handbag on the table. It did not advertise what the group was.

Caphx Tue 26-Nov-19 17:34:15

Thanks, Charleygirl5, good idea - I’ll think of something distinctive and let you all know!

Charleygirl5 Tue 26-Nov-19 19:07:02

Caphx Maybe a distinctive scarf?

Caphx Wed 04-Dec-19 10:23:19

Everyone - hope you’re all still able to attend; at my last count there should be 6 of us, which is great. If anyone else wants to join in, please just let me know.
As I said before, I’ll get to the Teatro early and save a table, preferably downstairs so look there first. I won’t put a sign on the table but I will be the ‘distinctive’ something that you should look for - I have straight white hair, almost shoulder length and I’ll be wearing a bright cobalt blue v-neck sweater. I’ll probably either be reading or messaging on my phone, so do interrupt me! Looking forward to meeting you all

cornergran Wed 04-Dec-19 14:07:26

Still hope to be there. In charge of a poorly granddaughter today and tomorrow so as long as the bugs stay with her I’ll see you Friday.

vena11 Wed 04-Dec-19 17:46:42

Yes I will be there .

Franbern Thu 05-Dec-19 14:32:12

I will be there. Hope it can be downstairs - if it is not do they have a lift?

Caphx Thu 05-Dec-19 20:16:43

Franbern - I’m sorry, they don’t have a lift, I’ll do my best for a downstairs table

Franbern Fri 06-Dec-19 14:15:44

Many thanks Caphyx for organising this. Six is pretty good for first one. Lovely to meet you all, look forward to seeing you all again (plus any others that may wish to join us ) in the New Year

cornergran Fri 06-Dec-19 17:30:00

Thanks from me too caphyx. Hope to meet everyone again in the New Year.
