Hi any Lincolnshire folk here?

DazedAndConfusedByLife Thu 04-Jul-19 20:55:19

I'm quite near Boston.

callgirl1 Thu 04-Jul-19 23:16:02

I`m in Boston, would love to meet up. I`ve met up with 2 other ladies from Lincoln a couple of times, we had a lovely chat.

Keeper1 Fri 05-Jul-19 09:20:08

I am in a village between Lincoln, Sleaford, Grantham and Newark so a meet up sounds great.

Nandalot Fri 05-Jul-19 10:59:22

Hi all. I would be interested in a meet up. Like Keeper, I live in a village midway between the four towns.

Scribbles Fri 05-Jul-19 12:44:02

Hi, Nandalot. Yes, another meet up would be fun if it can be arranged to suit us all.

DazedAndConfusedByLife Fri 05-Jul-19 17:27:08

It would be great to meet other people local-ish to me! smile

callgirl1 Fri 05-Jul-19 17:38:17

We`ll have to get planning! As far as I know, the only dates I can`t do in July are the 9th, 10th, 23rd and 31st.

Scribbles Fri 05-Jul-19 19:11:57

I'm not available 7 to 19 July; 22 & 23 July or 1 August if that helps anyone. smile

Scribbles Fri 05-Jul-19 19:14:16

PS to my previous post. What about Sleaford as a venue? No idea where but the town is fairly central and has trains and buses for non-profits.

callgirl1 Fri 05-Jul-19 22:01:09

Oooh, I`ve never been to Sleaford! Mind you, I`ve only lived in Boston for 42 years!

Nandalot Fri 05-Jul-19 22:31:22

I’m not sure that there are any cafes near the station in Sleaford ( looking at Google). There is a cafe in the National Centre for Craft and Design which had some lovely cakes last time we went. Good parking but not really walkable from the station for anyone with limited mobility so would mean a taxi.
I can’t do from 6th to 20th August as Spanish family are coming over. Other dates are more flexible at the moment.

Hi........ I am in Surfleet, nearer Spalding than Boston by a few miles. So nice to see you all.

How about Springfields. There's several places to choose from for coffee etc.. Plus the shops to have a look around. .


BeenBizzy Sun 28-Jul-19 20:39:34

Hi there,
lovely to see you all.
I live in a village in South Lincs. Would love to join you
for coffee. Have car can travel.
What about Springfields...... Coffee and shops....

Bee. [ smile]

Hi, I’m in Boston, would love to meet up sleaford or Springfield’s would suit me fine.

Scribbles Sun 28-Jul-19 22:08:55

Spalding/Springfields is awkward for me.

I've done some research and Nandalot was quite correct when she said up-thread that there aren't really any decent cafés in Sleaford aside from the NCCD which is a hike from the station.

Maybe Grantham or Newark would suit more people?

callgirl1 Mon 29-Jul-19 16:30:17

Grantham`s fine for me, but would consider Newark as I`ve never been. Would love a Springfields meet, but there aren`t any buses there from Boston, it means going all the way to Spalding then bussing back to Springfields.

BeenBizzy Mon 29-Jul-19 19:35:12

I don't mind where the meet up is........ I have to drive to get there...
No buses where I live.

So would we be looking at a Monday to Friday meet up, as I will need notice to get time off work. I am happy to meet up, Grantham, Sleaford, Newark or any places in between. It would be lovely to meet up.

callgirl1 Sat 10-Aug-19 22:23:44

I`m willing to go with the flow, it`d be nice to meet more people.

Scribbles Sun 11-Aug-19 16:30:40

Shall we do Grantham again? It's reasonably easy to access for Callgirl, Nandalot, Keeper and me so that's 4 of us and others may wish to join in.

I would certainly prefer Monday to Friday but might manage a Saturday with due notice.
What dates are we all available?
For the record, currently, I can't do 20 Aug, 27 Aug, 3 -10 Sept inclusive, 12 Sept, 17 Sept, 1 Oct, 3 Oct.

Let's sort out our calendars and make this meet up happen!

callgirl1 Sun 11-Aug-19 17:19:07

October 8th is out for me

Keeper1 Sat 17-Aug-19 14:22:13

I am ok for last week in August, most of September at the moment but my son maybe coming up for a visit. I am off,on the 9th Sept taking husband to doctors so could do that day. 15th to 18th ok for me too

callgirl1 Sat 17-Aug-19 14:34:56

I`m easy, I`ll go with the flow, looking forward to another meet up.

Scribbles Sat 17-Aug-19 17:45:08

What about the 28, 29 or 30 August, in Grantham? I'll PM a couple of others to see if they could make it on one of those days.

If so, shall we go for the Angel & Royal again? The food was OK although not wonderful - but I think, last time, we were too busy talking to notice! At least, it's quiet with no raucous music and there's a nice area where you can have coffee/drinks and talk....
