Picnic in the Park!

Hi all, The weather on Sunday is going to be scorching. To take advantage of this, to meet new people and to make friends, I have scheduled an impromptu picnic in the park. Please bring the food you want to eat and a bit extra to share. Would love to see as many of you as possible to this event. Kids welcome. I will locate our spot just in front of the entrance to Wollaton Hall. My number is[masked] if you need to contact me. Jinny

    Sorry can't come now. Did a bike ride this morning and it was a little more difficult than I had expected! 25 miles. Just finished now and I am destroyed!

    Waiting to hear from friends about sunday but hopping to make this, if its like today it'll be beautiful.

    July 6, 2013

    • Wayne

      I would recommend some other form of transport. Might take you a long time to get there like that...

      The weather tomorrow will be around 28 degrees too, just like today.

      July 6, 2013

  • Jinny

    If anyone wants to plan any activities for the afternoon, please feel free as I am sure it will add to the fun. I know Liam is bringing a Frisbee. J

    July 5, 2013

    • Jinny

      Whatever the mood is! As long as you don't point them at me!

  • Wayne

    I'll be bringing a train buddy and her daughter

    July 6, 2013

  • Wayne

    As everyone usually brings loads of food, I'll bring the drinks.
    Not alcoholic - sorry.

    July 5, 2013

    • Jinny

      Wayne, it's easier if everyone just brings what they want to eat and otherwise it will become very difficult. Bring extra to share with others if you want.

      July 5, 2013

    • Jinny

      I remember the miles and miles of emails from people the last time about what to bring.

      July 5, 2013

  • Stella

    Hi, I think I can make this :) It'll be my first meeting with notts sociables so looking forward to it.

    July 4, 2013

    • David

      There is a car park, which I think is £3 for four hours. Or you csn generallypark on road outside for free.

      July 5, 2013

    • Stella

      Cool thanks David.

      July 5, 2013

  • Liam

    Brilliant idea Jin! We've got to make the most of the good weather. I'll bring crisps, bread sticks, a dip or two and a frisbee. (Of course, one of these may be less tasty than the others ;)

    July 5, 2013

    • Jinny

      Great idea with the frisbee! Look forward to seeing you there. Jinny
