Meet and Greets in the UK

Hello Everyone,
I've organised a series of meet and greets around the  UK with permission from OUCH UK.
You don't have to be a member of OUCH UK to turn up, just a cluster head or a supporter.  
Meeting other CHers face to face for the first time was one of the best experiences of my life. Being all able to compare experiences and share tips that had helped us cope with our attacks was beyond description! I felt more empowered by that meeting than any Imigran injection.  
Below is the list of dates/locations organised already. I'm hoping to be able to add a couple more so please check back for updates.
Hopefully you can make it along to one near you. They will literally consist of a small group of people meeting in a pub for a drink and a chat. I will have loads of information leaflets and help with O2 etc to hand as well. You can stay for as long or as short a time as you wish   -  but I can guarantee you will go away having made new friends and feeling more positive than you would have believed!  
 
For more information on times/how we’ll recognize one another etc -  or if you have any other queries - please contact me either by email or im here.  
 
2006 Dates and Locations for the informal get-togethers:
 
 
18th September Somerset:  King Sedgemoor Inn, Express Park, Bristol Road, Bridgwater TA6 4RR.   Exit M5 Junc23 and follow the A38 south towards Bridgwater.  Restaurant is on the first roundabout after about a mile.  
 
16th October Blackpool:   Brewsters, Yeadon Way, Southshore, Blackpool, Lancs FY1 6BF.   From J32 – M6 follow the M55 to the end.  Continue along carriageway following signs for Blackpool Main Car Parking.   Brewsters is on left hand side.  Turn left for entry at first mini-roundabout.  
 
20th November Birmingham: Brewers Fayre, The Ridgacre, New Gas Street, West Bromwich, West Midlands B70 0NP.   From Jl – M5 take the A41 Expressway dual carriageway.  At the third roundabout  -  the Brewers Fayre is on the right hand side.  
 
11th December London:  The Cambridge, Cambridge Circus, London (next to Palace Theatre).  Nearest Tube stations Leicester Square, Tottenham Court Road and Covent Garden all 0.2 miles.  
 
 
I really look forward to meeting you.
Helen

No problem Matt! I already have that in hand, there will still be more to get added into this list, this is just what's set so far. I've promised my lil sis (Mrs Mac) that I'll organise one for Glasgow too and there will be SEVERAL coming up in London including a ladies night only (next time Mrs Mac is in town!) We'll make the photo's for that one pay-per-view so we can get a bail fund going....  Wink

We need to get a meet sorted for South and WEST WALES  Grin
 
England is over 100 miles away from us here in Pembrokeshire, never mind anywhere beyond the border... and I know there are CH'ers hiding down this way [Val from ouch-uk who I haven't yet met is about 10 miles away from me]...
 
We also have to pay money to come back home across the Severn Bridge, which isn't fair!! [especially as it's owned by a French company!]
 
Swansea would be good... or Cardiff maybe... or perhaps even Carmarthen or Narberth  Roll Eyes
 
Amy suggestions/ideas more than welcome!!!!

October would be good  Smiley
 
But... I've heard a rumour  Grin that you are getting a visit from the American Narberth in September... perhaps she would like to visit 'our' Narberth????  
 
cough cough... hint, hint...  laugh
 
I'm sure Val H. would agree [even though we haven't yet met].
 
But if that's not possible, [thinks 1/2 term = kids @ school?] whatever you think is fine by me!!

Paul, 100 miles away? I just drove over 1300 miles to see my Clusterbuddies... it was well worth it, I assure you. Especially if one of them is Helen. My only advice: don't bring the kids.  Wink

Hi Nani
 
It's definitely a Brit thing!!  
 
I have thought about going to one of the other meets [Bridgewater] and may well do so, but also think that we could have one in Wales as well  Wink
 
I used to drive 2,500 miles every week btw as a delivery driver... it's not the drive, just would be nice to get a more 'local' group going down here in the Wild West of Wales Smiley
 
Kids?? They are long gone  Grin Grin

A roundabout is a big island in the middle of a junction and a mini roundabout is a painted circle on the road
