that's great, the more the merrier.

I will put more details on the thread as soon as a place is sorted, with you coming, we have three families fancy Sutton Park?


So, has anybody else got any other idea's for meet up on the 14th April, or do we all think Sutton Park is ok??????


Please let me know, by posting on thread or PM.

many thanks,
Carl:thumbsup:


The Birmingham meet would be a better location for me. Steve D kindly let me know of the arrangements for the Nottingham meet but I think Birmingham would be easier for me.
Sutton Park sounds good, I've never been before so always good to see somewhere new.

Other suggestions if you would like any I thought possibly Stratford-Upon-Avon, there's a lovely area where the canal boats come in and out...maybe a picnic on the grass if its a nice day. Or Warwick Castle as was suggested before. Lots to do there too.
I don't mind either way, but thought I'd throw a few suggestions in the pot as well.

I'll check back later to see whats going on.
Lindsey :)

Hi all,

sounds like another good meet up place, Stratford upon Avon, have not been there for years?

Could people let me know which they would prefer please and if they are going, so I can make some sort of list. Many thanks.


We have now booked into the campsite for the Notts meet, so all go now.:thumbup: :thumbsup: :p

We live in Coleshill, Birmingham and are waiting a decision. Our 90 day letter said processing will start on 1st March, so anytime soon we hope.

We are looking to go to Vancouver/ Sunshine Coast

It would be nice to meet up with some like minded people !:thumbup:

Hi Gibbo
Stratford or Sutton Park, I don't mind which, either would be nice especially on a day like today. :thumbup: As 'Spoons' said it'll be nice just to meet some like other people who are in the same boat as myself.
But count me in whichever venue it turns out to be. I take it the 14th is still the date for the midlands meet?

Lindsey:)

Hi Spoons,
hope you can join us for both/either meet-ups? As you say would/will be good to meet other fellow nutters:eek: It is a long hard road and it will be good to meet people at all stages of the process, get some hints and tips.

Thwe meet on the 28th has all been arranged, meeting at 2ish in the car park of the Major Oak. There are some details on the place and some directions. It anybody needs more help, please contacted me, by posting on this thread or PM.


I have had a lot of interest for the 14th April meet-up and there are two venues put forward, Sutton Park, Stratford-upon-Avon.
Me personally, would prefer Stratford, because it will be easier for everybody to get there and easier for people to find. It is surrounded by motorways, M5
M42, M40 and there is a large car park, right next to the river and park, for everybody to meet?
If anybody has any other meeting places in Stratford, please let us know.

I was thinking, meeting at about 11ish in this car park, can either take picnic, or can wonder into town and find pub(s) and have meal? There is a play area and loads of space in park, to meet.
Any suggestions, please come forward.:D :thumbup:

Looking forward to meeting everyone. The Gibbo family will be there:eek: :rofl: :thumbsup:
cheers all.

Hi folks,
have been looking for somewhere to meet for the stratford meet up on the 14th April.

There is a big car park by the side of the river, with play area, playing fields and a short walk into the town centre.


It is the recreation ground. If you head for and go over the Clopton Bridge, turn first right, just over the bridge, down SWAN'S NEST LANE. Drive down for a shoet distance, past some toilets on your right and you will see the car park. Keep a look out for our white Mondeo and Canadian Flag.

We were thinking for about 11ish, give us a bit of time to get there and meet up, then decide what we fancy doing.


Please let me know if you would prefer other venue, or different time, etc.

would be good idea, to post or PM me to let me know how is going,
many thanks to you all,
looking forward to seeing you all,
regards,
Carl:thumbsup:

Hi Guys
Sorry I haven't been in touch - manically organising our move - we're outta here on 28th April....Picked up passports and visas from London yesterday.
Would love to come on 14th, but inlaws are being a complete nightmare, :mad: and apparently that's the only day they can see us........so will have to drop out, I'm afraid.:frown:
Keep us posted on developments, and have a great time.:)
Sharon
PS Carl, will reformat lists for you this weekend and get them over to you.

Hi Carl
I think that sounds great :thumbsup: I'll be there. Will do my best to get there for 11am (might be working that morning but will leave about 10am if I can, and from Coventry, it won't take too long to get there.)

I've found a map of Stratford on the internet, I'll do my best to attach the link here for others to see. It looks to me like the car park you mention is right next to the Butterfly Farm.

My car is a blueish Ford Escort - will have an Ottawa Senators flag attached !

Out of curiosity, how many people think they'll go on 14th?

See you next weekend. ;)

We're not sure whether or not we can make it. (Other family commitments!). I'm trying to juggle a few things round so will have to let you know nearer the time. Sorry to be so vague, and hope to meet some of you soon.
