At the moment the Friendship bench does not seem to be working, so I am impatiently posting here!
Anyone else interested in meeting other mumsnetters who live locally? Just chat in coffee shops, or if we get really motivated other crazy possibilites could be, say, a book club, walks in Bushy Park etc.

Also I am researching starting a new part-time business. If anyone is interested and has any expereince in Marketing, Sales, small businesses, pre-school classes, or education then let me know.

Hi there. I work part time but might be up for coffee or lunch or something on a Monday or Friday sometimes. I'm in Richmond. A book club sounds fun.

I also run a small business so if there's anything you want to know, ask away!

Hi - friendship bench is new so not surprising that it isn;t well populated yet. I didn't even realise it existed!

If it helps I made MN friends online first by chatting then arranged to meet the people I got on with online.

People also tend to be attracted to coffee etc with someone in a similar position eg childrens age (babies, pre-school, primary,secondary etc) so you might get on better if you made that clear. I know it shouldn't make a difference but somehow it does!

Thanks for the tips North Sheen. I can see now the friendship bench is now working so I've posted on there too.
I have not been online that much (have three DC) but now they are all at full time school I've got time to socialise with other local Mums during the week.

Thanks for replying too Absinthe. Let's do a Monday or Friday coffee soon? I'm quite close to Richmond.
My brain is buzzing with 'Small Business' type things at the moment so would be great to chat about that.

Coffee would be lovely. I'm a bit busy this week and next but any time after that would be fine! Do you want to pick a day? How about Dec 7th or 14th? And if anyone else wants to come along, feel free.
