Local Social - fixed for Wednesday 25 September 7pm, Dolphin

Post by buzzbee » 29 Jul 2019 16:01

Hi all

We talked about trying to do a local social, perhaps in The Dolphin, a little while back on a thread involving a new member moving to Sydenham. Now I've seen another forum organising their SECOND meet up in Forest Hill while we've procrastinated (me more than anyone else)!

How do people feel about trying to get a date in for late August/early September? I'm happy to do some organising if there's enough interest. I proposed The Dolphin before because of the big garden outside.

I reckon a thirsty Thursday would be good to set us up well for the weekend.

Let me know if you're interested and we can get the ball rolling :)

Suzie

I'll be around. Avoid Wednesdays, unless you actually want to avoid me

I've not been particularly active in helping get something organised either... apologies. Time gets away from you with a 4 month old baby!!

Count me in!

I'm up for this too, assuming we can find a date I can do! (Work/holiday around that time make it a bit more complicated)

I can't actually do either of those, on account of not being in London those days - or for most of those weeks, due to work/holiday. But if the majority can make it, go ahead! Someone has to pick a date sooner or later, and it will never suit everyone :D

Loved that movie.

Avoid the Bank Holiday Weekend and I will make an effort to be there.

Sorry all, life has been hectic and continues to be so I haven't done anything about this yet and not sure I'll have time to organise for the dates suggested earlier! :roll: :oops:
I will book for a date a bit later in September and will send an update.
Apologies x

I contributed to that particular thread and proposed something, then dropped off the face of the earth. Apologies. I'm in!! Happy to help where needed. Thanks for kicking this off.

Great - I'm very guilty at the dropping off thing myself.
I'll go into the Dolphin tonight and see what nights they've got something on so we can avoid!
Thanks Sydering

I've been into the Dolphin on Sydenham Road and they're fine for us to come in on Wednesday 25 September - may I suggest from 7pm?

I know there are other pubs in Sydenham and hopefully we'll get to do a social tour of them over the next few months but thought it would be nice to move away from the obvious places like the Woodman and the Greyhound etc for a bit of a change.

The Rugby World Cup is on but England are playing the day after so it should be a good day to pick.

Hopefully see some Sydenhamites there.

Thanks Suzie!

I'll definitely be there. Let me know if you need a hand with anything, happy to share responsibilities etc, but look forward to meeting you all :)

Would it be worth amending the title of this thread to include date and location?
