Greetings All
It is a long time since a meet was held in the UK.
The proposal is to hold a meeting as follows:
Place: British Wildlife Centre, Lingfield, Surrey.
Date: Sunday, 9th September 2012
Time: From 1000hrs until 1500hrs.
This would be followed by a social gathering at a nearby licenced promises.

The centre is located on the A22 about 20 minutes drive South from Junction 6 of the M25 and ten minutes North of East Grinstead. There is no bus service to the centre and a taxi would cost about £6.
However transport could be provided from either/or Three Bridges Station (London-Brighton line) or Lingfield.

I look forward to hearing from you all

Kind regards
JDW

Hi JDW
Thanks for suggesting this get-together.
Hobbit and I would love to meet up with you, especially as we haven't been to the BWC before and it's not too far from us.
Hope some other 'mites can make it.

Sorry JDW,
DASSIEDELIGHT and I will be in KNP. Sounds like a good venue though. Maybe next time.


Take care wherever you are.

Sorry, bab - but a 200 mile detour is a bit tooooooooo much! Now if it was Llanddeusant, that would be a different story! :)

Hi JDW

The BWC is a great place to visit, I went there last year with 30 lively 7 year olds :roll: and have thought about taking Jenny there ever since!

It's not too far for us to get to and the 9th is a very rare FREE Sunday :dance: , we would go even if there were not many others who could make it.


Please count us in!

Hi All
It is less than three weeks before the proposed meeting at the British Wildlife Centre.
Over the next couple of weeks I hope more of you will confirm that you will be able to attend.
It will be very informal.
I look forward to hearing from you
Regards
JDW

UKB
I have not visited the centre before and I'm looking forward to the day.
I shall be attending even if there are few other attendees

Wildimage and I would love to have joined you but he is still in hospital and nothing is going as planned. Hope you have a great day and hope we will be able to join in at another time.

Carol and Richard
