As mentioned on previous thread (Ladies who like to lunch in London) I'm just starting this one.
If anyone fancies suggesting a date for a new Meet, or a venue (though Debenhams is pretty central) it would be lovely to see you all.

Sounds okay to me and I also agree, Debenhams is fairly central and coffee and snacks are not expensive.

Bellanonna Tue 21-May-19 22:56:41

I echo that Charleygirl.
Thanks for starting the thread notgoneyet!

Sounds like a good idea. Is the Debenhams in Oxford Street?

Niobe Wed 22-May-19 09:00:13

Would love to come but Tuesdays and some Thursdays are out for me due to babysitting. Thursday 6th June would work for me.
Loopyloo, debenhams is indeed on Oxford St, between Bond St and Oxford Circus underground stations.

Bellanonna Wed 22-May-19 15:50:30

Hello to both of you. It would probably be a bit later than 6 June. Do either of you have any suggestions for later dates? It would be good to meet you.

Niobe Wed 22-May-19 17:51:23

Any day but Tuesday or Thursday would suit me. My DiL sometimes has meetings on a Thursday and they can be at shortish notice so I tend to keep those free. I usually manage the Wanstead meet ups on a Thursday because she and DS live near where we hold the Meet up.

loopyloo Wed 22-May-19 18:23:53

So a Weds or a Friday?

Niobe Wed 22-May-19 18:26:51

Yes, any Wednesday or Friday suits me. Would love to meet more Gransnetters!

Bellanonna Thu 23-May-19 08:43:13

Ok well that’s a start!

loopyloo Thu 23-May-19 09:33:10

How about Wednesday 5th June? 10.30 am?

Catterygirl Tue 28-May-19 12:14:16

Hello Ladies,

I am free most days and can do 5th or 6th June, or later in the month.

Charleygirl5 Tue 28-May-19 13:14:40

Sorry I cannot do either the 5th or the 6th of June.

Also 10.30am is too early when one travels by tube because free tube starts at 9.30am. 11am would be a better time.

Franbern Wed 29-May-19 10:06:16

Charleygirl5 if you are using a Freedom Pass to travel by tube, then there is no time limits.

loopyloo Wed 29-May-19 10:32:44

How about Wednesday 5th of June at 11am? Sorry you can't make that Charleygirl. Can you suggest a better date when you would be free?
There's a great irony in that I had to ask if Debenhams is in Oxford Street! I have lived in London all my life. Never usually went past John Lewis.

Charleygirl5 Wed 29-May-19 10:37:56

For me Friday 7th June,Monday 17th or Friday the 21st June.
Franbern thanks for that.

loopyloo Wed 29-May-19 12:03:30

Friday 7th is good for me. Ok so now Friday 7th June at 11am. In Debenhams, Oxford Street.

Charleygirl5 Wed 29-May-19 18:18:39

That sounds good to me- I wonder how many will join us?

loopyloo Wed 29-May-19 19:49:00

Be interesting to see! I will post something from time to time so people see it.

notgoneyet Wed 29-May-19 21:13:41

I can't make a Wednesday unfortunately. Can usually negotiate round most other days, preferably a Tuesday but definitely not Wednesday/
Friday 7th June a possibility but a date a bit close so will have to confirm later.

Niobe Wed 29-May-19 22:30:33

Friday 7th June at 11am is good for me.

loopyloo Thu 30-May-19 07:41:11

That's good Niobe!

Bellanonna Thu 30-May-19 09:00:57

Grandson duty on the 7th. 21st was mentioned and I could do that.

Catterygirl Fri 31-May-19 16:35:40

I can do 11 a.m. on Friday 7th June, at the moment.

Grannyknot Fri 31-May-19 16:51:18

Hi everyone, I can't make Friday 7th, sorry! I have a dentist appointment that I am reluctant to change. Enjoy the meetup!
