Ely blipmeet - Tues 3rd Oct postponed from 12th September

Postponed until Tues 3rd Oct

Whilst editing the post below for details for meeting up, I checked the cathedral website and found it is now closed on 12th and 13th Sept. Many apologies, so I'm afraid we'll have to postpone it until Tues 3rd Oct. Please let me know if you will be coming along

i thought it would be nice to have another blipmeet at Ely, so if you're interested in coming along on Tuesday 12th Sept please reply and let me know. It's a placehoder for now with more details to follow. For those who haven't been before, there's a glorious cathedral and a river to walk along and a country park and free parking!!!

I've put it in the calendar.  Rota for September won't be done till late July - I'll confirm/cancel at that time

I hope to be there and I have put the date in my diary. It is possible that my husband, also a blipper will be there too, but this will depend on his replacement knee surgery.

I'll try and be there.  Ely and back in a day will seem a doddle compared to some of the tripe we've made recently!

Hi - editing the main post doesn't seem to have generated an email notification, so I thought I would add a post, so those who have already commented will get an email, and hopefully check up.

I got the email norfolkdoc re the change of plan and date........such a shame....but I will be there on the 3rd if I can- there is a Blipmeet at Stowe on the 2nd Oct- so it may be hard to take two working days out of the week.......

Hi the arrangements for the blipmeet next Tues 3rd Oct at Ely are as follows:

Meet at the Barton Road carpark at 10am (CB7 4HZ) which is free after 8:30

Fairly short walk to start with tea and cake at The Almonry next to the cathedral http://www.elycathedral.org/visit/refreshments/the-almonry-restaurant

Once we're all together and refreshed we'll set off either for a walk by the river or to the cathedral first, depending on the weather. If you can't get there for 10am, then you can meet us at the Almonry. We can decide when we meet if we also want lunch at the Almonry or elsewhere.

There is a school event in the cathedral, but visitors are still welcome. Basic entrance is £8 and if you ask you can get your ticket converted to a year's free pass. There is also a £2 charge if you want to use a tripod.

I hope you can still come along and it would help me if you could please confirm whether you are attending.

I had hoped to come to the Ely blipmeet, but it is now looking more likely that I will not be there. If circumstances change I will meet you in the Almonary or the cathedral.

Hi all.  I'll be there.  I will be driving down from Norwich, happy to give anyone a lift if that's useful.  Looking forward to it - hope the weather stays as good as today
