Mumsnet Local are trying to co-ordinate a nationwide meet up day on

Wednesday 5th March as it's International Women's Day

So shall we aim for then for our next day time meet up?

I'd be interested in most of those. Probably not the book club at the mo as I haven't managed to pick up a book in 2 yrs! (Since DS was born). Might be able to do 5th march depending on the time.

Right, are you looking to have a day time book club? As I know an excellent venue for it wink that is if Fulbourn would be good. I work in Twelve, which is a second hand book shop/parish centre for the church in Fulbourn. It's got a comfy sofa and a kitchen to make coffee/teas. smile

1. Friday the 28th February? I can make it then smile Bringing DD3 with me though to give DH a break

Marking place - I could definitely make daytime meetups / book group Weds-Fri during the week, though city centre is better for me.
(I would love to go to an evening meetup with wine, but at the moment DD is still quite insistent on bf being available on demand in the evening.... Hopefully towards the summer she'll be easier to leave in the evenings!)

LocalEditorCambridge Thu 13-Feb-14 18:49:40

Oh god I'm such an idiot. I'm away March 5th....

Does anyone else want to take over organising something?

Or we can change the date - as I'm happy to have it at my place so people can come and go over period of couple of hours.

I was also thinking an evening book club rather than day time to be honest? But can we do meet ups at your place any way? Sounds fab.

Sorry for being such flake - my youngest has got a vomiting bug so I'm even more sleep deprived than usual.

I'd be up for the book club, and am always for an evening night out.

I would definitely be up for a book club. Evenings would work best for me. And am also up for another boozy night grin

Fri 28th Feb is good for me for day time now docs appts aren't taking over my life!

I'm being flakey I know

Hello, I continue to be up for evenings out. Early March is good and Fridays have been ok for most so far.

We have been to:

Baroosh which was groovy but noisy later.

The Cambridge Brewhouse which was friendly and had nice snack food.

Cau which was dinner-y rather than a bar with food but it was delicious.

Other places we considered:
The Maypole
The Pint Shop

Having started threads for the last 4 meets and cocked up the booking for the last one, I'm happy to leave it to someone else to sort out this time. smile

A14 there's a possibility of Club12a - need to chase up a meeting with the owner.

I'm away early March but could organise something for late March. But do no wait for me.

Some one can step in to ensure you all get drunk together

Hi Hazel1985 you're very welcome to come along to our evening meetups. I know that there are day time meetups too, I think the Local editor is organising one. Would be lovely to meet you smile

I can organise the next evening meet up if that's ok with everyone. Can you all let me know when you are available please. I thought I'd try the pint shop this time but open to suggestions.

GinAndIt Mon 24-Feb-14 15:07:27

But you'll still have to bring the penis beaker theA14 grin

Hello to everyone new <waves to lurkers!>

I can't do anything for 2 weeks. But PLEASE do not wait for me to organise something, especially now we might even get a few minutes days without rain.

I've been fighting my children's bugs - now they are all better I'm getting ill and I'm on annual leave next week so laods to do as well as feeling rubbish this week & next week out for me. sad

If anyone wants to take over, just pick a date, start a thread and see if anyone is free to come along.

When I get back I will organise a day time get together and - could do it at my house so people aren't too time restricted by children's naps or having to control toddler in cafes.

By the way here's a link to some baby & toddler groups if you're feeling a bit stuck at home..

I have to clarify that it's just a beaker. A perfectly respectable clean, green beaker.

I'm free Friday 14th March.

Could do the 21st also but I'm going to Early Night Club on the 20th I think.

GinAndIt Thu 06-Mar-14 16:20:19

LocalEditorCambridge Tue 11-Mar-14 16:38:42
