OK, well maybe not that far but a Thai meal one evening - anyone up for it? Recommendations and suggestions for venues are welcome and I'll be happy to organise.

Glad you enjoyed it Julie, next time we can try the Thai in Walden and compare!

That was a fab curry Sue, no doubt I'll be back for more.
Hello there , back with it all now . Well done Sue for organising i could take 1 plus 2 shortish people :-)
0 · March 4

2 · March 5
Can I be the one non-short person please?

Yep Julie you'd fit nicely :-) I don't suppose there is any chance of getting a lift into walden ( happy to drop you home later) but suspect I may be pressed for time going. Dan yep if you still need a lift that's fine with me
Thanks Karen, you say where and when and i'll be there… see you tomorrow
Thank Karen, please just tell me when and where too :)
Sounds like 7:30 is the time, julie can you get dropped off at mine , and then I can swing round to pick Dan up . Alternatively can meet at common with others ?

I am happy to meet at the common
Dan, i'm parking outside your place so Karen can pick us up from the same place. See you later.
see you at the carpark, I have a silver Rav 4
:-( I'm not well and won't be able to make it.... Have fun everyone XX
Oh that's a shame, hope you get better soon, there will be other fun times to be had xx
Sorry you're feeling poorly, Catherine. Hope you feel better soon. Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make it either, but hope you guys have a great time.
Sorry about that Melanie, look forward to seeing you another time :-)
Looks like we have 5 drivers. Not sure if we need all of them. Shall I pick some people up from somewhere or would someone like to pick me up from somewhere? Is the Common car park a good place to converge on around 7.30 maybe?
1 · March 6
I have a full car all with close local pick ups so will go directly there
that sounds a good idea Jonathan, then we dont have to take un necessary cars.
I'd also like a lift there and back - quite happy to "loiter with intent" at the car park at 7:30.
Looks like I'm pumping the tyres up. I have 3 passengers so far. Could possibly take one more but it will be cosy. See you at the car park 7.30.
Hi all - I'm going to see the Rat Pack at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on Sat 8th March with a group of friends and we have a spare ticket. Would anyone like to come? It's £27 for a fun night out with a group of lovely ladies!
does anyone need a lift

Thank heavens this site is back up and running! Can I just anyone who can't make it after all to let me know asap please, also to get back to the volunteer drivers! If anyone needs an extra place booking please also let me know, should be a great evening :o)
I can drive, have space for 3

looks like there is enough drivers, if it is poss to get a lift? I have a really heavy day driving Friday (not sure I want to volunteer to drive anyone at night!).
Regarding the change of venue, I booked the table a long time ago for 1 6 people and I feel to let the pub down at this late stage wouldn't be fair. As everyone was happy to go to the Three Tuns originally I think it would be good to stick to the plan, we only need 4 drivers and I'm happy to be one, as is Shaun. We could be back in Walden to catch the music after dinner and another time we can go to the Thai in Walden and compare! Any other volunteers to drive please say so on here - perhaps we could liaise in the market square on the night?

I'm with Sue on this one, the pub is expecting us. It takes a lot to accommodate 16 person party (and a lot to organise 16 of us-thanks Sue). There are plenty weeks ahead when we can do Thai in SW and there will be plenty drinking time in SW after our meal on friday evening. See you friday!

hi, if anyone fancies a drink sat night, Michelle and are going for a drink in 8 bells at 8pm tonight.
Hi Claire, nice idea, see you there :o)
1 · March 1
Anyone coming from Linton area I am happy to pick up.
Sorry missed this but will be at Poontang at the King's Arms from about 10. Are we allowed to hijack other events like this...?
Hi, I was thinking the same, the thai in saffron walden is really good and we can all walk, even go for a drink after, what is everyone else's thoughts?
0 · February 28
I'm wondering if it might be worth changing the location to the Thai on Hill St and we can then go & see our old favorites 'On the Edge' afterwards or maybe visit The Garden of Edmir again.

My Golf can potentially take 4 passengers from town if needed else I would be glad of a lift.

Have tried and failed to get a minibus so it looks like taxi or car sharing. Can I suggest that those who don't mind driving comment on here about where they can pick up from and how many they can take??
0 · February 22, 2014
Love to come along.
0 · February 17, 2014
Am just making enquiries about the minibus costs for 16 of us! Didn't think there would be this much interest - it's fab! Will let you know ASAP!
0 · February 11, 2014
yes def interested cab bus whatever.
1 · February 7, 2014
does anyone fancy maybe sharing taxi to and from walden???
0 · February 6, 2014
If enough people are interested I could enquire about a minibus? Let me know if you are keen!
Sounds like a good idea to me. I'd be up for that.

Hi all, am trying to enter a date and venue for this on here Friday 7th March, 8pm at the Three Tuns Abington, but there seems to be a problem with the site or is it me? Can anybody help?
0 · February 3, 2014
Thanks Shaun, I tried again this morning and just couldn't get the website to respond for some weird reason! Just kept jumping around my screen both on Explorer and Chrome - you'll have to let me into your secret!
It's simply that to change anything after its been setup then edit rights are required. This is something Dan can assign. :-)
So it's not me being thick - phew! Thanks Shaun, please note Jonathan!!
Looks like I have edit rights to things I shouldn't have...now let's move that Ball to Somerset...
1 · February 6, 2014
sounds good i will put the date in my diary
Well I just managed to change the end time on the Cambridge Dancers' Club Hollywood Star Ball so it must be possible.
tonight or am i a day late
0 · February 1, 2014
No date's been set yet, so you're not late ;)
1 · February 3, 2014
I have also eaten in The Three Tuns lots of times and the food has always been excellent.
1 · January 31, 2014
Yes - pending availability I'm up for it!
0 · January 30, 2014
So, is anyone else interested in this as an evening out? It looks like the favourite is the Three Tuns in Abington so far.
Venues? As far as I'm aware, the Bankok Thai Restaurant on Hill Street has no competition around here (it's where the Sangdao Thai restaurant used to be - near the mini-roundabout).
Staff were friendly and the food was good last time I was there, and their menu has stuff to cater for chilli-lovers as well as folks with milder tastes.
Depending on the date/time, I'd be up for this.
0 · January 20, 2014
Thanks Peter, I've also had another suggestion of The Three Tuns in Abingdon - means driving but we could arrange car sharing - any other ideas/thoughts out there?
I can vouch for the Three Tuns, I have eaten there several times. The Chef is Thai.
1 · January 30, 2014
Thanks Debbie, I've eaten at the Three Tuns too and it's always been fabulous!
Any more interest out there?
0 · January 22, 2014
Either sounds good to me - although personally I preferred sue's original suggestion :-)

Saffron Social is a group for people who want to meetup for regular activities. Drinks, eating out, cinema trips, walks, outdoor activities or anything else members want to suggest.
If you have just moved to the area or just want to meet new people and get out of the house more this group is for you.
The idea is to make the most of what there is in Saffron Walden itself but nights out in Cambridge and other nearby towns are an option too.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
