Proposed UK Meet 9th September 2012

Unread postby JDW » Thu Jul 19, 2012 6:33 pm

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.

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

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

Hi all,

Rose and I will come along; I may try and get ourtrip report out before so I do not feel guilty; we have been back for three weeks with all the usual stuff to catch up on.

Downloaded images last night so that is good start :)

Best regards/ Mike and Rose

Hi all

To whoever is going to the UK meet on 9th have a great time! We will think of you whilst we are sitting in the Lake Panic hide!

Mike, did you go to KNP then instead of Namibia?

Regards,

Hi All
The UK meet took place yesterday at the British Wildlife Centre.
A total of eight people gathered on a very warm and lovely day with clear skies apart from the planes preparing to land at nearby Gatwick Airport.
Those attending were JDW (John)and SO (Mary), M Collard (Mike) and Rose, Tweedle (Catherine) and Hobbit (Allan) and UKBadger (Gerry) and Jenolim (Jenny).
A further more detailed report will follow in due course.
But the concensus was that it was a great day.
Regards
