    Hi Guys, Um I am down as a no show for this for some reason.

    You may not have noticed me, being that I am such a quiet wee thing but I was definitely there, can this be rectified please.

    Been stood up again eh James.

    August 15

    • James

      Think you have to have an arranged date in order to be stood up, so in that case no :D

    Refrain from the usual quips Nigel, a good idea! Put my name down suddenly realised I am not required for last second additional work (I would of said no anyway) I'm not getting an unexpected or forgotten visit from a friend/relative and the dog has not in fact eaten my homework. Ohh and nothings cropped up either :D Any similarity to actual quips is purely coincidental. See you all later.

    Uncharacteristically I'll refrain from the usual quips. Tempting though .....

    Hi Nige, poor you ! Amazing to think a night in the pub can become so complicated!

    If you look at the link below of Google maps I can direct to free car parking. Just to the left and below the Colston yard is Lower church lane. If you turn onto Lower Church lane from Park Rowe (Its a very small cobbled slope) and then take the first left you will see a gravelled car park on your right. You can park here free. Its a university car park and will have enforcement signs however they do not enforce parking regulations between 6pm Friday and 7am on Monday morning. I work for them dont have a permit and park there often sometimes all weekend. Just a min's walk from the Colston yard and saves paying. I may be along yet not sure Ive signed on to another event which is closer to where I need to be later on but not many people on it so may divert to this one. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Colston+Yard/@51.457176,-2.596962,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x48718dd862c70825:0xe8f9ceb0a916d4cb

    August 14

  • Nigel

    We'll decide on the night where we'll move onto and I'll notify people on here

    August 14

  • Nigel

    If anyone wants my mobile let me know and then I can meet you as soon as you arrive or meet you outside.

    August 14

    • Mary F.

      Hi Nige, can you send me your number please as I don't know what time I shall be heading in and you may have moved on. Ta

      August 14

    • Lisa

      Yes Please Nigel

    Hi Barbra. You can park in Trenchard street car park. With your back to the children's bri hospital ( the building with the large Coloured rings outside ) turn right for about 200m . Opposite go down a steep cobbled street. The carpark entrance is then on your right

    Can someone please advise where would be the best place to park the car. I live in Calne,Wilts. and unfortunately I can`t rely on a public transport late in the night. I would love to come.

    August 14

  • Jude

    Hi, I'll try and find you all at some point later in the evening.

    August 13

  • Wendy

    Thanks Nigel, but public transport being what it is I cant be sure of my exact E.T.A. I'll aim for earlier rather than later, that way the pub shouldn't be too busy so I'll recognise one of you from your pics. As I'm 5ft 11" I'm quite easy to spot.

    August 10

    • Mary F.

      Wendy I am sure that someone can also give you their mobile number if you like ... you are more than welcome to have mine though I never know what time I am going to arrive either :)

      August 13

    • Wendy

      Thanks Mary, I'll have to try and memorise a couple of the pics of people going or I may make myself a badge saying "Bristol & Bath everything. Please talk to me" Looking forward to meeting everyone. See you Friday.

      August 13

  • Nigel

    Hi Karren.
    We'll be at the bar and I will message a description of what I'm wearing on the night.
    As I know our pics aren't the clearest

    August 12

    • Karen

      Thanks, Niggel :-)

      August 12

  • Kevin

    Hi everyone, as it is my 40th this weekend, i would like to have a few drinks while we are out to start the celebrations, but have major transport issues if i do :( Is anyone coming from my direction that i may possibly be able to get a lift with? Or even have a sofa/ floor that i may be able to sleep on afterwards.

    August 12

  • Nigel

    Ok Debby thats fine

    August 12

  • Karen

    Really looking forward to this. How will I find you?

    August 12

  • Phil R.

    sorry folks, can't make as went and double booked against a do I thought was cancelled, hope to be along to another one soon though.

    August 12

  • Nigel

    Ok Wendy.
    Make sure you don't sit down then.

    August 11

  • Chrissie G

    Good to see you back on the scene Bev !!

    August 11

  • Nigel

    It's opposite the B.R.I. childrens hospital. It used to be the Smiles brewery and pub. If you like I can meet you outside of the pub ?

    August 10

  • Wendy

    Where exactly is Colston Yard? I've never heard of it. Did it used to be called something else? I'm a bit apprehensive wandering around on my own looking for it as this will be my first meet up and I rarely venture into central Bristol on an evening.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
