Looks like there are three of us for sure and Gel and Lesley are probables with Helen being a possible and maybe even another new woman. Will be lovely to see you all and anyone else who wants to join us xx
hi, looking forward to lunch date. joyce is on holiday so she wont be able to come. see you on the 19th. love mags
OK, so far we have 3 definites and 3 possibles and a couple of tentative enquiries. Any more want to join us? We are a friendly bunch, don't feel shy .....
Thanks Martha, I hope your friend will feel able to join us, it's good to meet other women in the same situation and we have a laugh as well.
The next meeting is on Tuesday 19th November at Quay West pub Brighton Marina 12.30 ish
For those coming by car there is free car parking and plenty of disabled bays, there is a walkway/bridge from one of the carpark floors (maybe the 3rd but not sure). It will take you to a slope to the pub.
For those coming by bus, these buses go into the Marina 7, 21, 23, with the no 7 being most frequent at every 5-7 minutes, the no. 7 also comes from Brighton Station if you are coming by train. A couple of other buses run to the Marina too but are not regular. When you get off bus passed McDonalds and by Bowlplex go back the direction the bus came in and you'll see a big building opposit MacDonalds, that's the pub, Quay West. There are lots of stairs to the left as you face it BUT there is a disabled ramp/slope to the right which is much easier!
It would be lovely to see new faces and meet more lovely ladies so don't be shy, come and join us. Feel free to PM me.
Have a good weekend,
Hi Zara and Martha,
Sorry I've only just seen your posts.
Zara sorry you are now having mobility problems. Do you know anywhere suitable for us to meet in Hastings? Maybe we could arrange to have one of our lunch meets closer to you.
Martha, sorry to hear about your friend, if she is ready to start meeting women in the same boat she'd be welcome to join us. What has been happening is that we meet for lunch, mostly in Brighton, as it is generally easy for most to get to and ther's plenty of disabled parking at the Marina. We have had meets in other places too and am sure we can do so again.The mets haven't been set regularly but as the interest seems to be growing and we might be getting more 'members' I think we are likely to set dates probably about every six weeks .... watch this space.
I'm hoping to confirm the next lunch over the next couple of days, it's looking like it will probably be Tuesday 19th Nov.
thanks for replying. that was kind of you. I am disabled now i am afraid and i dont really go anywhere by myself as i have to use a wheelchair that needs pushing. But if anyone out there lives in Hastings or Bexhill or somewhere local to me i could meet up by catching a taxi or arranging a lift from a friend. It would be lovely to meet up with someone in the same boat as me
many thanks x
