A big thank you to all the mumsnetters coming to the very first "Funky mamas" mums night out - it's sold out !!! Next one is planned at the Wiltshire Golf and Country Club, just off of Junction 16 of the M4, in Wootton Bassett is FRIDAY MAY 20TH (overnight hotel with swimming pool and spa available if you want a night away )with a Marlborough event planned at the Town Hall on FRIDAY JUNE 3rd. Thanks again.....see you on 15th !
hello just seen this thread. been trying to get involved in a meet up for ages but nothing ever came of it. how often do you meet, where? i'm in swindon J16. Would love to meet MNetters in area day or night.
/what is the funky mamas night out?? What will the 20th may involve? Meal, dance etc... Could somene fill me in ta. would very much appreciate it.
that would be great. we could meet north swindon area somewhere maybe south marston jungle bungle. How old are your children? My ds is 6months but i'm sure he wouldn;t oblige to being stuck in a ball pool or helped down a slide etc. what days are best for you? Tuesdays and fridays. Are you a SAHM?
sorry ladies...have been on a course for the last couple of days and only just caught up...doesn't this make you realise how attached to get to the computer ?!!! Anyway for all of your update, the first funky mamas night out has sold out though next one IS planned, booked etc etc for Friday 20th May. Tickets for May will be available and on sale from Monday 18th May at Churchill House family restaurant - there's also a really good (if on the small side !)childrens play area there called "Bumpy's Kingdom". Angelfire, if any tickets do become available then I'll try and get hold of you. I'm up for a meet up during the day - I have two little one's, a 4 yr old and 2 year old, though am up to my eyeballs this week with the FM event then off on hols on 20th April...fancy setting a date early May ? Nannyjo/....it's a chance for mums to let their hair down with other like minded mums. I have a really good DJ who will be playing music to dance to..and you can get something simple and basic to eat from the bar. It all happens at the Wiltshire Golf and Country club, which is very nice and a bit classy, even if I should say so myself !!! If I do get any drop outs before Friday I will let you know...think it's going to be something a bit special as its the very first one !!!
May have to be the end of this month if okay. Just come back from holiday and next week have a busy week with minded children - what with school holiday and everything.
I'm 32 on Tuesday (infantile with it though) i have two daughters aged 4 and a half and the youngest 3 at the end of May. The oldest starts school after Easter break but they graduate the finish times for the first week so will be chaos.
Have to go now unfortunately got shopping to do urggghh. will contact you soon!!!
you missed it ! Oasis was yesterday and Marlborough was this morning. Woops !!! Hope to catch up with you when I get back from hols...the Funky mamas night (Friday) was a great success, some 220 women (mainly Mums !) and 20 brave men (they came with their wives/partners !) had a fab night. The adver. will be doing an article on it so I'll let you know when it's going to be published
in answer to your questions....
2. lots of women ( and some men !!!!) groovin to some good funky music from the 70's to current
3. What one in Brighton ?
4. Organised by me for whoever want's to attend. Those that came on 15th were mainly from local area though there was a group of around 20 from newbury and a couple of ladies from london
5. No not strictly mumsnetters...yes "the more the merrier " Lots of people are coming with a group of friends, the group sizes ranging from 28 (that's been the biggest !) to 2 (!)
6. No it doesn't make you sound silly
There was a really good article in the Advertiser on April 21st if you read it.......Hope this helps !!
