Hiya! Think 11.00 a.m. for Wyre Forest meet on 1 April - allows travelling time for Leicestershire folks, and for Dizzydora to get back in time for her concert that evening!! OK??? :D Eileen :D

Hi
You will be looking for the Wyre Forest Visitor centre, which is off Long Bank, Bewdley, the road is the A456. You will go past a pub called the Running Horse on your left, then further on the entrance to the forest is signposted on the right (if you are coming from Bewdley Town centre).
Hope the sun comes out!!

Eileen, Molly and All
Sorry but we are not going to be able to make it after all :oops: Today we received an invitation to a
Ruby Wedding Anniversary Lunch for a lovely couple who are "very old friends" not literally of course.
So unfortunately we will have to miss this meet but hope to be at the next one…
I don’t think we have ever had so many invites to things on the same day! :roll:

I'm really sorry, I've just checked AA route planner and from where I live it will be 90 miles to get there. :shock:

That's just too long for Doodie, she's only five months old.

But I am really looking forward to going to Bradgate Park on the 22nd - that's only half an hour away from us. :D

Are there ever any meets in the West Midlands???

We live in Shropshire & would be interested in coming along to one at some point in the future before we get our doodle just to "try before we buy"...oops, too much daytime telly :oops:!

The meets we've read about up till now have been a bit too far to travel.

Any info much appreciated,

Hi Laura,

Wye Forest, Bewdley, is only about 30 miles max from you, probably as near as you are going to get!!!

Thanks Yoz,

Will talk to OH & see if we can come. Might leave it for a while since no imminent plans to get a doodle.

Hi,
We are Clifford and Dillon from Ashby-De-La-Zouch and would love to attend the Bradgate park meet as we are quite near - but we don't always behave as we should and we have heard that some Ducks may be present !

We are going to Wales the week after - Seagulls :twisted:

Has everyone changed their minds now they've seen us!!!

Dear Clifford and Dillon,

You look like fun, just like me :D and you can teach me all about the ducks 'cos I've not been allowed near them yet. :shock:

You also look quite big, so when we meet at Bradgate Park please don't step on me :lol:
