Anyone in the Lincs/Notts area wanna meet up? 4_1_201.gif

Don't see why those southerners and west-mid lot should have all the fun. 10_7_6.gif

You beat me to it - was just about to start the new thread for this one!

 

Looking forward to it already. We are back from holiday on 6th August (I was only a week out on the post last night) so anytime after that good for us - Sundays always easier than Saturdays but they are not impossible.

 

Whereabouts in Lincolnshire are you?

We are in Gainsborough.

 

Any day will good for us as Tracey will be on maternity leave then anyway and as I'm self employed I can pick and choose what days I work. :cool:

 

So whatever day suits you best will be good for us.

Hey!

 

We are in Tamworth.....so sort of in the middle of east and west....! Does that make us 'eligible' to join the meet as well.

 

More new faces.....!!

Sundays definitely best for us - I work in school all week and Neil works near enough all the time - more likely to get a Sunday off than a Saturday. Hows Sunday 19th August for everyone??? Not taking over - just like to be organised - get my few social arrangements in before the childrens hectic social life takes over all the dates!

Would it be best to meet in Lincoln or Newark, quite central for all of us then?

I'm going to beat Pete to it for once!!:D He always replies on our behalf before me. 19th should be fine. Will definitely have had baby by then. Newark or Lincoln sounds good, do you know anywhere suitable aound there? Just noticed that our children are around the same age so will be good for them to meet aswell.

 

I'm sure Pete will reply soon;)

Have some family in Lincoln so they will know some child friendly places there, don;t know Newark at all. Shall we say Lincoln and we can find out some places at the weekend and post suggestions to you.

 

Your kids look lovely in picture, they are very similar age, so should have fun at the meet.

 

Really looking forward to it, hope for nice weather!

 

What date is the baby due on? Are you feeling ok?

Baby is due on 23rd July. I feel great. Tracey don't look too healthy though. :D

 

We shall leave it in your capable hands to find a venue. We don't know Newark either and don't go into Lincoln much.

 

Looking forward to it though.

Hi Graham,

 

They've put a big sign up on the East Mid / West Mid border saying 'Django keep out':D

 

Seriously though at the mo we can't go too far or there will be no knowing where the baby will be born. Niamh was 7 weeks early.:eek:

THE GAMEKEEPER, Newark Road, South Hykeham, Lincoln, LN6 9NH

(on the A46 Newark Road, Lincoln Bypass)

 

Pub has an outdoor play area and beer garden as well as an indoor activity play centre (Wacky Warehouse - we have one in Boston and our 2 children love it - has a charge of £2.50 but if it keeps them happy!!!:D) Meals are served all day every day at 2 for 1 - order 1 adult meal and get another 1 free - menu can be viewed online - yum yum.:o

 

If you type 'The Gamekeeper Lincoln' on your google search it will bring details of the pub up. Hope this is OK!

Any time is good for us Sarah. Its on the calendar so we've got the day clear.

 

If the weathers good the kids will love it. Shall have to get an Aussie flag so people haven't got to go round the place asking everyone in the place whether they are from PIA. ;)

 

Looking forward to it.
