Back from my break away now. After christmas would be better for me i think, especially as i really need to get a move on and do some christmas shopping!!!!! I will stop off at Woodland Waters in Ancaster and see hoe suitable it wiuld be for a meet and familierise myself with it too, so watch this space and i will let you all know.
We were only away 5 days and i can't beleive how much bigger Poppy looks. It will be fun at the meet as she doesn't listen to a word i say when there are other dogs around :oops:

went to Ancaster today :( and you've guessed it, not so good news.... dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times. There were alot of canadian geese on the bank of one of the lakes, which is my guess why, so back to any other ideas :roll: Sorry!! What about Bourne Woods?? Susanan you know this area best don't you??

I will have a look at Bourne Woods at the weekend. We do go to the wood regularly but not the entrance I think would be easier for people to find.

If anyone else has a suggestion, perhaps a more open space, then let us know.

Just to let you know I havent made it to Bourne Woods yet as they have shut the road that leads to the entrance!!

We are going away on Thursday for a few days so hopefully the road will be open when we get back. I will keep you all posted.

Hi everyone

Went for a walk in Bourne Woods this morning. It would be perfect for a doodle meet. There is even a pond for swimming. The entrance is off the road from Bourne to Colsterworth roundabout and easy to find. Plenty of parking and even a fenced off playground. I cant believe we have lived here for two years and never visited before.

Can I suggest a date for the meet. How about Sunday 7 January at 11am.

Look forward to hearing your views.

Hi Is the Colsterworth roundabout the one on the A1? & if so is Bourne wood anywhere near Ingoldsby? & if the answer is yes to any of the above can anyone come with or without a doodle?
Sorry loads of questions I know but our son lives out that way & perhaps we could also join you all?

We hope to be there. Got a 40th birthday party the night before, which is why i say Hope!!!!!
Ingoldsby is that way on i believe!!!
I will look forward to meeting everyone with my mad and very excitable doodle Poppy.
