With local having a bit of a publicity boost how are you finding it? what do you like or not like about it!

Bit quiet!

I know but thanks for replying! we are working on it as you can see. Are you interested in a meet up? i think its just a case of letting it grow a little bit organically. Im hoping to get some offers to encourage others. Please do keep popping in from time to time though smile hoping there is some others that will be encouraged by seeing this.

I think if we can get a few ladies chatting away then I don't see why I wouldn't be interested in a meet up! I moved to Derbyshire two years ago for an all consuming job so I know no one around here - and I'm on maternity leave so a meet up may be just the thing!

Of course ill keep my eye on the local board, lets hope more people show up!

ok that's fantastic! where about's are you? and i will see if I can find a soft play area / park for future meet ups?

horseylady Mon 04-Mar-13 19:44:23

I'd meet up!!

Hello there!

I moved up here about 4 years ago, and met no one local due to all consuming job! I know have ds, 2, work part time and always happy to meet new people.

I live near ripley....anyone else round here?

plonko Tue 05-Mar-13 08:54:32

Yep I'd potentially meet up. I'm in Belper.

StandinOnTheCorner Tue 05-Mar-13 12:42:52

Hello - Just wanted to check in and say "hi"
I'm up for a meet up smile
I'm Alfreton

Fantastic there is actually a meet up in Belper Plonko and anyone else out there! on Tuesday, 1pm, at Chucklebutties, free cup of tea or coffee for Mumsnetters. This is a joint meet up With Derby. If you could just say if you can make it on here
Then I can for warn the venue of numbers just tell them at the door you are Mumsnet myself and Chucklebutties would like to make it a regular meeting place so if anyone is willing to organise even if its just once a month! they can become ambassador for mumsnet and get lots of free stuff smile

CBderbyshire1 Tue 05-Mar-13 21:33:14

Also if anyone would like a meet up then please say and Mumsnet (I) will support in anyway they can! i live up in Glossop High Peak but will travel to be a extra face grin also dont feel that you need to meet up with children wine !

MyOtherCarIsAnOgPog Thu 07-Mar-13 02:55:36

Oooh, I could do chucklebutties - is it every Tuesday or just next week? Confessing to being a mn'er in public is there a secret handshake wink

plonko Thu 07-Mar-13 09:28:48

Maybe in a couple of weeks/months - I'm currently 8 days overdue and waiting to go into labour!! grin Will definitely be up for it once I'm ready to be up and about, but there's going to be a slight delay.

Maybe we should devise a handshake, OgPog?

CBderbyshire1 Thu 07-Mar-13 20:56:15

I was looking at once a month. But would be asking for someone to add it to meet ups! You will be repaid in Mumsnet freebies! grin!

MyOtherCarIsAnOgPog Fri 08-Mar-13 06:26:42

Good luck plonko - hope all gets well with the birth :-). I don't know if you already know about it, but there is an nct bumps and babes group In belper community hall (behind the library). It runs on Monday mornings, I think from 10.30-11.30 - it could be a good place for you to meet new mums locally smile

goes back to working on secret handshake

I'd like to play but am just outside Chesterfield so a bit far away from most of you, perhaps I would be better off trying the Sheffield board!

CBderbyshire1 Wed 10-Apr-13 21:38:24

No Don't go! wink im sure theres some more chesterfield mums! give us a shout!

Goodie10 Sun 14-Apr-13 15:14:36

Me me me I'm here!! I'm in Sawley just outside Long eaton. Anyone in this area? We moved here almost a year ago and I have yet to make any mummy friends!

CBderbyshire1 Sun 14-Apr-13 21:22:03

Hi Goodie10. i hope someone is near you and that you can get to meet some new mums! if you fancy organising a meet up please go for it!

DerbyNottsLeicsNightNanny Thu 18-Apr-13 11:17:05

Goodie10 I'm in Sawley too....

Goodie10 Fri 19-Apr-13 20:59:21

Ooh we need to get a few of us together and organise something. I work Monday to Friday but free most Saturdays

goodmum123 Thu 20-Jun-13 22:49:28

I'm chesterfield! Anyone ?

VirgoGrr Sat 22-Jun-13 17:34:33

Ahoy! I am in between Alfreton/Ripley and I've been here a year and found it really hard to make some new friends <sob>. I moved here to be with DP and we've been together 18 months, no DCs yet.
I'd love to find some new local friends for the odd gin/nights out/come round for dinner etc.

bbtrix213 Mon 01-Jul-13 22:32:23

I'm in Chesterfield too, goodmum123! It'd be good to meet local people as my ante-natal group friends are mostly Sheffield-based and it'd be nice to be able to walk to a meet-up for once.

PurpleDana Thu 11-Jul-13 09:25:09

I'm in Chesterfield and would love to meet up. I moved here 3yrs ago for work too and have no friends / family close, so would love a bit of social life with or without baby!
Due next month so anyone similar would be fab :-)
