any ideas for next Midlands meet?

Post by winnieb » 05 May 2010, 22:25

  • Hi all, we really enjoyed the last midlands meet at Markeaton we wondered if we were doing it again anytime soon. I know Freda ( Lizziesmum) had an idea of a good place for a meet and wondered if any dates had been sorted yet,
    Thanks Clare x

How about if we meet at Conkers then go on to the Donnington Island Lake (I think this is its official name) its just under 2 miles around,easy walking,safe swimming.Then back to the new Youth Hostel or Moira Furness for coffee etc.All of these are within a few minutes drive of each other.
Are we keeping with 22nd or 23rd May?time to be arranged later.

Hi Chan and Nic,

I think Conkers is just off the M42, in leicestershire.

Looking forward to it as well xx

Hi All,

Hope we and Rufus can make one of those two dates. Not sure which is best for us until I've checked further.

We could make the 23rd if that's the date you choose.
We are away in the meantime so will check back at later date to see final details

Hi All,

We'd prefer it not to be Saturday morning but reasonably flexible otherwise.

I can only do Saturday morning this time as we have a do to go to, which will be rather late (and boozy by the sounds of it!)

Gilly if we meet on sunday 23rd would you like to arrange the next walk on approx 12/13th june.
Sorry we dont seem able to suit everyone this time.
Its a lot quieter on a Sunday morning at the lake,this would really be the better day to go there.
Take a look on line at Moira Furnace Canal Festival which is this weekend,we could maybe go there for a drink/food if not theres the Conkers Youth Hostel (again look on line)which has good outdoor facilities for a drink/food.
I hope this is all ok ,
Post your thoughts folks,

Freda
