A few of the York Grans are hoping to meet for lunch on Friday, 28th February at Blue Barbakan in Foss gate, at 12.30.
The new, bigger, restaurant which is just up the road from our old favourite, the Barbakan, serves tasty Polish food and cakes.
Hope that lots of York GNers, old and new, will be able to join us.

Good morning Oldgoat
Count me in. Hope others will join us.
Looking forward to the new restaurant.

Artyfarty Sun 02-Feb-20 17:46:31

Count me in too!

gardenoma Sun 02-Feb-20 21:42:28

Yes I'll be there.

Looking forward to seeing you alygran artyfarty and gardenoma.
Hope a few more Grans will be able to come along - maybe even somebody on holiday in York on the 28th?

Can a Harrogate gran come?

oldgoat Mon 03-Feb-20 19:40:09

Of course Lizzies you are more than welcome . Although it's called 'the York meetup' Grans come from all over the place: Sheffield, Northallerton, Easingwold and even occasionally from Scotland!

Keeping my fingers crossed that the floods don't rise any higher here in York. Our chosen venue has only just reopened after the floods 5 years ago.
The new flood barrier should be able to cope....

oldgoat Sun 16-Feb-20 10:51:28

Less than two weeks til our meetup in York and hopefully the flood water should have receded by then! As the Council says 'York is still open for business'.
The daffodils are starting to come out on the Bar Walls and Clifford's Tower so it's worth a visit just to see those.

Count me in, Newbie - looking forward to meeting you all!

oldgoat Mon 17-Feb-20 09:32:52

Welcome northerngardener Sounds as though you and gardenoma have a common interest!
I'll book a table this week but the restaurant is very flexible and more places can be added if necessary for latecomers.

Hi all York GN unable to make this meet but will keep eye out for next.
I love York and easy for travel.
Meeting in Leeds on 24th where hope to introduce few new faces all welcome to join us.
This is such a great site for welcoming new GN.s

oldgoat Mon 17-Feb-20 13:17:01

See you on the 24th in Leeds Party4 Hope you can make the next York meetup.

oldgoat Tue 18-Feb-20 07:58:47

I'm off to book a table for the six of us:-
and me.

The flood waters are receding and the new flood defences have done a good job holding the water back from most of the city.

Any more Grans out there who would like to join us? You will be most welcome.

Hi, all, I am hoping to join you again on the 28th. Will confirm when I am sure I can make it

oldgoat Wed 19-Feb-20 23:01:02

Hope you can make it on the 28th Kirbylass. I've booked a table for 7 just in case; we can move to a larger table if more people want to come.

Lovely photos, but the only one I would have recognised wasn`t in any of them, pity! Glad you enjoyed your get together.
