Would anyone be interested in meeting up in Reading? Any suggestions as to when, where and what time?

Have you got a venue in mind Greenfinch?
I could do the Holme Grange one possibly, but not the bus to Reading anymore.
Hope you get some takers.

Oops, just caught sight of the thread title and thought that someone was starting a book club! blush Never mind, it gives it a bump, so good luck with fixing up a meeting!

This is not the first time we have been confused with a literary meet-up😊. I think I will have to put Berks in brackets afterwards !

Hi Auntieflo. I just thought we might get more takers if we based ourselves in Reading ( doesn’t seem to be the case !) but we can certainly meet up again at Holme Grange. Would you like to suggest 2 or 3 mornings that are suitable for you ?

I am happy to come to a Reading meeting. I lived in East Berkshire and Reading for nearly 30 years and I am happy to meet in Reading or Holme Grange. I know where Holme Grange is, in fact I have been there many years ago.

I cannot manage 4 - 17 February, and 24/25 February.

I'm booked on 31st Jan and a couple of Saturdays in February but the diary's free apart from those.

It looks as if Holme Grange would be the most convenient venue. If I suggest 3 dates perhaps you could let me know if any are convenient for you.I suggest we meet at 11am for coffee and then stay on for lunch if you are able / want to.Here goes:
Friday 18th February.
Monday 28th February
Tuesday 1st March

Currently I can do 28th February and 1st March. 18th February is the day after we get back from a visittot our house in France and will be tired and busy unpacking and sorting

I thought it was a book club as well! Doh!

Auntieflo Mon 24-Jan-22 21:40:24

At the moment, I can make any of those dates 🤞

M0nica Tue 25-Jan-22 09:42:13

Sorry, re-edit. I can only do 1st March. I have a Tai Chi class on Monday.

Greenfinch Tue 25-Jan-22 12:35:53

Let’s make it 1st March then 11am at Holme Grange. Everyone welcome

M0nica Tue 25-Jan-22 16:57:32

That's is on my calendar.

I have just started another thread for our next meeting. The title of this thread is confusing so the relevant one is entitled Wokingham.

Greenfinch Thu 24-Feb-22 10:17:27

Looking forward to our Wokingham meet on 1st March-11 ish at Holme Grange. Join us if you can.I have posted this on 2 treads to avoid confusion hopefully.

Auntieflo Thu 24-Feb-22 14:58:46

Well done Greenfinch, I was hoping you would remind us of the next meet-up. Looking forward to seeing you on March 1st.

Greenfinch Thu 24-Feb-22 18:40:07

Glad you can make it Auntieflo. I suddenly realised it was March next week. I still feel it is the middle of February😴

Pennyjw Sat 26-Feb-22 10:55:58

I posted on the other thread! I look forward to seeing you.

Greenfinch Sat 26-Feb-22 13:33:51

It is a bit confusing Pennyjw but it will be lovely to see you again.
