There are some great people living in this region. Come on in and make new friends for drinks, meals, events and days out!

----------------------------------------------------------

Contact Information and Cancelling:-

If you're coming to an event - please tick 'GOING', don't just turn up. Because if I don't see any ticks, I may cancel the event and you'll find yourself there on your own.

If you can't make an event - Please untick 'GOING'.

If there's a problem on the day call me on 07904-604-962 (especially if you've broken down!)

At other times you can contact me via my profile information (or privately at: johnblackledge@gmail.com).

----------------------------------------------------------

Membership cost: After the first Meetup, £1 at each event towards the cost of running the group and paying the Meetup (USA) License fee.

(As opposed to other Groups, which charge £2.00, £2.50, and £3.00 - another group I'm a member of.)

----------------------------------------------------------

Also, please note:

Our weekly Wednesday Lunches will NOT be announced like the other special events. These are so regular that they will soon clog up our online diaries.

Please check this website each week (and especially on the day) where they are being held because we are trying out different venues.

Cheers, John Blackledge

P.S. If you've missed an interesting Meetup, simply ask me to put it on again.

Tyldesley Little Theatre - 'Strictly Murder'

Tyldesley Little Theatre

'Strictly Murder' by Brian Clemens A Thriller Directed by Kaye Taylor An English couple, Peter and Suzy, are living in Provence in idyllic isolation in 1939, far, it seems, from the rumblings of the coming war. Their peace is shattered from within when Suzy discovers she has been betrayed & her life is thrown into turmoil. Lies, subterfuge and murder make this fast-moving thriller a dark and disturbing roller coaster of bluff and double bluff. Doors Open at 7:00PM Starts at 7:30PM Tickets Available from Sat 29 Feb 2020 http://www.users.waitrose.com/~tyllittheatre/trivia.shtml This runs from Tue 24th March to Sat 28th March. I'll be there on the Thursday.

A walk through the Windy Woods starting from Bents Nursery. We'll meet at the main door then Robert and Helen will guide us round our walk through the countryside. 1 to 2 hours, depending how we feel. (With plenty of rest breaks for old codgers... but not me, of course.) I'll probably bring butties and a drink, though Bents has a lovely, if expensive cafe.
