Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

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,

Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

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.

Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

Hi. I hope this is ok but I am on this forum on behalf of a friend who has gone quickly from a diagnosis of breast cancer to one of have secondary cancer in the lungs. I think she may be ready now to look for some sort of support group. Do you still meet up and if so, how would he join you? Thank you.

Hastings shout out

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

Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

Hi Zara,

I drive but don't do any distance anymore I seem to have lost confidence since further spread to spine. I came from Folkestone on the train perhaps next meeting you could meet us on the train?
Just a thought
Love

Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

Ratsypan good to hear from you. Hope the op went well and you are recovering nicely. If you are up to it it would be lovely to see you but if not don't worry there will be more lunches to meet at. Look after yourself and keep cool in the heat.

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 buse go into the Marina 7, 21, 23, with the no 7 being most frequent at every 5-7 minutes, a couple of other buses run there too but very irregularly. 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!

Lookng forward to seeing everyone about 1 o'clock on Wednesday! xx

Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

Peony, as Lemongrove says, please don't let being late put you off, we take for ever getting lunch ordered as we're normally too busy chatting!! Will be lovely to have additional people joining us, so please do come if you can.
No Gel won't be there but nor will Joanna but Mags will and possibly one or two of the Kent girls.
Looking forward to meeting up with old and new

Re: Sussex Secondaries Lunch

Hi I am new to the site although I have been reading posts for a while. I would like to come to the lunch next Wednesday. My only problem is I have an appointment with my onc at 11.30 am so provided he doesn't keep me too long I will be there.
