Come & celebrate the group's 2nd anniversary! I can't believe this group will have been set up 2 years ago, how time flies when you're having fun!

Unfortunately the sun god isn't shining this year so we'll head to the Flower Pot for a few drinks. I've rang them & they said we can have the cellar bar which is the room round the back. There's an acoustic night which is on later that evening too if people want to stay on for.

    Thanks for making me feel welcome last night for my first event. Sorry I didn't get to speak to everyone due to dashing off early but I hope to see you all again soon.

    Thank you all for coming and celebrating the wonderful two years that Derby Sociables has been in existence. Made a significant difference to me - a newcomer to Derby just 18 months ago!

    Sorry I didn't attend. I've got so much stuff on this week, and not enough money to do it all. When my social life isn't as busy I'll be at another meeting.

    Slight hiccup with the hosts who might be a few minutes late! Just ask at the bar where the cellar room is & they will point you in the right direction. Can all you regulars keep any eye out for anyone who looks a bit lost please? Thanks

    May 21, 2013

    • Katie

      I can stand at the main bar and point people in thew right direction, I know where it is. Blonde hair pink coat!

    The Waterfall by Derby Station is spaceous... and Central. (sucky weather)

    May 20, 2013

  • Chris

    Maybe I got an optimistic weather forecaster.... needs to be a sizeable pub though?

    May 20, 2013

    • Monica

      Or maybe I'm just nesh :). Yep ideas for big enough pub please

      May 20, 2013

  • Chris

    Aw shucks! I didn't think the forecast was too bad (light winds, some sunshine and isolated showers.....). Unless you read a different paper/website! :-)

      Pub as back up plan? I've not given up hope yet though as last year it was an unexpected scorching hot day! We'll keep an eye on the weather & update beginning of next week

      May 15, 2013

    • Monica
