London Cantonese Language November Meetup

Welcome to the London Cantonese Language (倫敦廣東話) meetup group.

We are an informal group consisting of a variety of people who can speak Cantonese as their first or second language. The group encourages every member to have a go at communicating in Cantonese although you are not obliged to do so, you may speak in English if you much prefer. However, we think this would be a good opportunity for you to practice your Cantonese with fellow members.

From members' requests, it has been decided that we will rotate days to meet throughout the year. On odd-numbered months, meetups will be on Sundays, while on even-numbered months, they'll be on Saturdays.

As a summary of the day's event:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. 12-1pm: Meet at Cafe Nero for quick informal chat and drinks (no need to RSVP if only coming for this), we normally gather downstairs but if it is closed then we may be at the back of the cafe.
2. 1.30pm-3pm: Head to a pre-booked restaurant for some scrumptious, succulent dim sum (點心)
3. 3pm~: Optional Free-time - usually go for drinks afterwards for extended social chat in a local bar
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope you can join us.

Please note, you are NOT required to RSVP if coming only for the coffee/free time session. Simply post a comment saying so or send us a message indicating this.

If you wish to come along for Dim Sum, please confirm by RSVP before the deadline date. We appreciate if members could update their RSVP if you decide later that you cannot come so the space can be reallocated to other members.

If you miss the deadline or there are no spaces left, you are more than welcome to join us for the coffee or later at the free time drinks, just send us a message for our contact details.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Any further queries, please feel free to send us a message.

    Hi Eric thank you for taking time to thoroughly reply my query. It's no big deal and understand that seating is limited. The status shown differently on iPhone app and account online. To be honest I don't know if I have a seat or not since one shows I have the other on the waiting list. Hence my previous message.

    Hi Will, unfortunately spaces are limited by the restaurant seating arrangements, hence the limit restrictions we put in place to avoid any problems upon arrival.

    It is therefore imperative that we ask ALL members to update their RSVP prior to the meetup date (at least a day before, NOT on the same day!) to avoid "hold up" of a seat if they cannot make it as this will deny existing members (on the waiting list) to come join us.

    Alternatively, you may like to join us at the coffee to see if there are any "no-shows" in which case we can try to fit you in in-place of the "no-shows". However, we are unable to guarantee a seat is made available on the day unfortunately. You may also like to join us for the drinks event afterwards as another option.

    Eric seems like there are loads of people going to Dimsum and a bit of a waiting list maybe better to catch you guys next time.

    Hi Tilly, yes you are welcome to join us for drinks after the dim sum, you do not need to RSVP for this part of the meet.

    For ppl on the waiting list, come to cafe and we'll see if we can accommodate you on the day. Otherwise, you always join us for drinks. Email me or Eric (who is lead host this month) for our contact details to see where we're at.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
