What a good idea,it's about time we did something round here.
I live in SolihulI and think it is an excellent idea and would come along.
I know of a good venue in Merriden that would let us have a table in a quiet part of the hotel.
I have been to meetings there before and it's easy to get to and there is good car parking.
Not entirely sure yet Fluke, but it's looking increasingly like somewhere around Rugby (although hopefully not next to the cement works). We had considered somewhere like Solihull or Litchfield at first, as we'd been told they're both very nice places to live, but opted for Rugby (at least in short term) because of the excellent rail/road links to places elsewhere! lol
I would be interested in a meet, thought the same as you EK1 there never seems to be much going on locally .
Sharky,I have lived in Rugby most of my life so if you want to ask anything about the town or surrounding area drop me a message.
Next thing to agree on is a date. A Saturday in June looks favourite: as I'm sure we'd all like our esteemed colleague Sharky (Mr T2W) to join us once he has completed his move to the area!
Looking forward to meeting everyone for an informal chat about trading.
More suggestions are most welcome........
Fluke, like the idea of the venues in Meriden: plenty of hotels and good car parking with easy motorway access.
Sharky, good luck with the move. Plenty of excellent properties in the area especially in Solihull/Warks (where I live ). Have a look at Knowle, Dorridge, Hockley Heath or if you're really minted Lapworth/Tanworth in Arden. Drop me a line if you want more info on the area.
Would be interested in a meet as well, Im in Coventry - i can look around for some venues here as well if you like? I know we could have a meal at TGI Fridays (Expensive but a good atmosphere) or could find a more reserved location?
Thanks for tha advice and suggestions regarding the move. As you may have noticed, we ended up moving to Warwick rather than Rugby. With Leamington so close by, we're really spoilt for choice in terms of shops and restaurants.
Plus, T2W will be moving into a new office sometime later this month, most probably in Coventry. So once I've had a chance to settle in, I'll be happy to help organise a get-together.
