I'm in. Was thinking of suggesting something myself. From Oakham myself. I'm always in favour of a venue where we can sit and chat - not just stand behind our cameras!
Any one in the Midlands out there fancy meeting up
All the meets are miles away

I'm in leicester so not too far.see if any one else comes on otherwise we could arrange something
OK. See if any other response in a week or so?
See if any one else comes forward by mid March then it will be just we two :)
Fair enough. I'll see if I can drum up some interest amongst local blippers via their pages.
Hi I would be interested in a blipmeet. I'm near Hinckley but can travel.
Not far from me Dave gonna see if any more interest then arranges a meet
Should be good
Hi - I'm in Sleaford, Lincolnshire - depending on location I'd be keen.
Great stuff ......give it till mid March see if anyone else pops up then we will arrange a meet mid way to every one
We're near Leicester, would be great to catch up. Calke Abbey might work as a venue.
nottingham here ! i'd be up for meeting
Brilliant now there are 6 of us
So we need somewhere central to us all and a time convienent to us all
Any suggestions for a meet up town and I expect we can all make some time to meet within the next month to 6 weeks
As I've never arranged anything like this before I'm open to suggestions please
So we've got Leicester, Hinckley, Nottingham, Sleaford and Oakham. Somewhere like Melton Mowbray would seem to be central - or Melton / Loughborough area anyway. We had a suggestion of Calke from Helen - depends whether Audrey would go that far West?
Melton sounds a great idea frankbrett its just Audrey is so far away I will try and contact her later and see what she thinks
but we now hopefully have a town just a venue to meet at[i know Melton a bit ]should be good
I live just outside Leicester and would be interested in meeting up - I've only been Blipping for a couple of weeks but am really enjoying it
welcome suziQ the more the merrier
melton may be the meet up but we just need a venue and date so keep your eye on this post
It's too far for Audrey so we can arrange Melton Mowbrey as a good spot for all...
Now day of the week?
Any one got any definate no no's?
Melton sounds good to me, I've never been there before. I can only do weekends as I work Monday to Friday.
I know I'm the one who suggested Melton. That was primarily because I thought we needed to be a bit more towards the East. There isn't a lot of interest to photograph (maybe the Church), but if we just want to meet for a drink / snack and a chat then there are some places - I can think of the 'Anne of Cleves' pub (next to the church) for a start, but I'll get some recommendations from my daughter who knows the town well. Saturday is Market Day and it gets busy, so I would opt for a Sunday. An alternative, if people want to do some more interesting photography as well as meeting up is to go to the Great Central Railway in Loughborough (which has a café apparently).
I think sunday sounds good as most people have commitments in the week
I'm good for melton or Loughborough
And a meet and chat is nice so a pub/cafe as a starting point then a wander .
I'm in Grantham and would love to join you
We have decided on melton on a Sunday so keep watching and any suggestions welcome
OK. Can I suggest we meet at "More Coffee" in Melton one Sunday (11 am?). I am free 22nd and 29th March and 5th, 19th or 26th April. More Coffee is at 16 Market Place. Their Website is at http://www.morecoffeeco.com/
Frank your idea sounds good to me I am free pretty much any Sunday so can everyone come in with dates they can't make so we can arrange a meet where we can all get together .....
I can do March 29, April 5, 19 and 26
I'm in Atherstone but am often in Leicester :)
Thanks for the quick reply winchwench
Lyndylooloo see what dates you can make so that as many as possible can make it,but if you can't make the meet at melton and you get into leicester sometimes perhaps we could meet for coffee...
See how you feel
I've just checked my calendar and I think I can only make the following Sundays in the next month or so: March 29th and April 26th
All sounds good and I can do April19th and 26th - I'm afraid I'm already booked up in March
