Hi Everyone, [waves]

I am your new local Editor and I would love to get to know you all. As the title says, introduce yourself here and let me know who is out there!!

Also feel free to add anything you want to the site, if there is a group you love and want others to know about, or you own a business and want to promote it feel free to add it to the page. There are also areas where you can add offers.

If you have ideas for things you'd like to see more of on the site then please share that too....and if I can't help directly there may well be others out there who can smile

Look forward to speaking to you all

Hi, I'm looking to make new friends in my area as my 3 children are all in their 20's and away at uni and after bringing them up I've realised I've not kept up with friendships - people have moved away etc So feeling very lonely and looking to find groups/ideas to make new female friends and/or couples to socialise with my husband too. It's very difficult as people already have friendship groups and families nearby and we have neither. So anyone out there who is interested in getting in touch, please do! smile

Oops It says there's 2 messages to my thread but I can't seem to access them - any advice how to do that?

Hi Poppies. Thanks for your post. I think what you are describing is not at all uncommon. What hobbies do you and your husband like to take part in? If you want to mention some it may help people to suggest some groups etc that you could join? This can be a helpful way to meet new people.
By the way I think the two messages you were seeing were my original post and then your reply.

Hi Michelle, thank you smile

We enjoy walking and pub lunches, restaurants, theatre, cinema, weekends away and generally a good chat and a laugh with friends.

Great. Lots of scope for ideas there!
Incidentally if you pop into the "Meet-Ups" tab you will see that there are some active groups of Mumsnetters that get together - you may want to contact them if you feel they are close enough to you. Alternatively why not volunteer to be a Mumsnet Ambassador in your area? I am looking for people who are willing to organise the setting up of more "Meet up" groups - which will then be advertised on the Meet-ups tab. I am in the process of contacting local businesses to get some local business offers set up on the site and I will be seeking to get some special discounts agreed for our local ambassadors. The deal will be that if the ambassador writes a review of the business and puts it on Mumsnet they get the discount.

Hi poppies,

I know it's an old thread but I am hoping to move to Knaresborough/Harrogate soon. Do you live in this area?

Hello! I realise this is an old thread but I am new here and wanted to introduce myself. I'm Ellie. I have two children, both boys, 1 and 4. I currently live in London but we have just sold our house and will be moving to Harrogate in the new year. Exciting/scary! Just signed up with mumsnet in the hopes of meeting others and learning more about my soon-to-be new home smile

Harrogate is a wonderful place to live and bring up kids. I've been here most of my life so any questions ask away!
