Meet in the leicester area Anyone???
Just thinking now that the weather should be improving we should have another meet. I'm thinking either 29th June or 6th July depending on Tracey's shift.
The normal place is an option http://www.pub-explorer.com/lincs/pu...uthhykeham.htm or maybe we could try somewhere new.
Anyone up for it????
Can't commit to it yet Pete, depending on that horrible place called "work" we may be able to attend certainly would like to.
If we can't, we hope it is a big success.
Martin and Val
we'd love to meet up again before we go ... should we ever
but tbh lincoln is too far for a one day round trip!!
what about our idea with leicester?!?
That's an idea I shall change the title of the thread. D'you remember where the place you found was???
Or if the weather is nice it might be an idea to meet up in a park with a play area for the kids.
i think it was this one - a Wacky Warehouse ;)
the one in Leicester
Off Lubbersthorpe Way,
Tel: 0116 2630069
i like the idea of having hot lunch first and then go over with the fidgety kids and use the playarea/coffeearea (there is an entry fee though!)

Hi All we'de definitely be up for it. Just not sure about the bees knees mozzy. Not sure if you've been there but the wacky warehouse part is fairly cramped and gets really noisy and busy. Am trying to think if there is anywhere else that would suit better- think it might be hard to talk and be heard in there! Will post again soon!!!! Yvonne x
OOooooooh local knowledge fabby. We will leave the venue to you then Yvonne as you are in the best situation to find the best place. Just so the kids can have a run around and aren't bored.

Or one of you could have a BQ to help get into the Australia lifestyle.If you invite me i will bring a plate.
I would willingly have a barbie at mine if there were more room!!!! You'll have to wait till oz for that!! Thought of 2 places, THe Hope and Anchor, Birstall or the Red Bull in Rothley. Both easy to get to. Will check them out and get back to you all with addresses. The Red Bull is a wacky warehouse and the Hope and Anchor is next to a country park, set by a canal and has an park on it. Yvonne x
Count us in, we would love to meet up; put some faces to the names.
Looking at the dates, they are Sundays, so I assume its a daytime meet instead of an evening. Either date is good for us. Martin will just have to miss his game of golf that day.
It's a shame that the Bees Knees is possibly not going to be an option, we could have walked there. Would have taken us about 45 minutes, but we walk that way quite often.
The other pubs that Yvonne mentioned sound good though. Just to let you know, it's the Red Lion at Rothley, not the Red Bull (just in case anybody was looking for it on the internet.)
Another option is the Hobby Horse in Syston, Leicester
They have a wacky warehouse indoors (in case it's raining) and an outdoor play area, in case its not. Don't know what its like as we haven't been there for a while; Martins kids have grown up now so we don't go to pubs with children's facilities anymore.
