Belmonte and Englishbeauty have posted on another thread about meeting up, what about if we met up in Newport centre, as there seems to be a few mnetters that live in Newport. Have picked up that there is a new mnetter in Caerleon.

Shall we try and arrange a day and time and location ???? Who is going to make a suggestion ?? I live close to civic centre in Newport. Have a little one nearly 11 months old.

I live in Beechwood, have one son 23 months, with another due in mid October. Still working full time but can easily take the odd hour or so off to meet up somewhere during the week. Otherwise I can do weekends. From October onwards I will be on maternity leave so loads of spare time except for looking after 2 kids.......

Belmonte Thu 21-Jul-05 15:35:13

Are there any child-friendly cafes in town that anyone knows of where we could meet up?

englishbeauty Sun 24-Jul-05 21:45:37

PeachyClair Sun 24-Jul-05 22:15:00

Ooh, I replied to the meet up, is my e-mail playing up again then?

peachyclair - are you still meeting me and poppy this friday at tredgar house park at 10am??

Belmonte Tue 26-Jul-05 10:32:04

Is it the one at Metro? Run by Sure Start? I have also heard about it. Supposed to be quite good.

PeachyClair Tue 26-Jul-05 13:00:45

Yes, will be there!

poppy101 Tue 26-Jul-05 19:00:53

Hi we are trying to make a meetup at Tredegar House Park, at 10am this Friday, Baby Metro cafe was only open on Tuesdays and this wasn't convenient for some mums to make this week,as they were busy Tuesday.

Friday 29th July at Tredegar House Park, CAT me or englishbeauty for more details.

englishbeauty Tue 26-Jul-05 21:40:01

belmonte - yes thats the one.

when we going to meet up with you then as you can't make it this fri?

poppy101 Wed 27-Jul-05 12:26:11

If the weather is bad on Friday morning, then meeting up at the Park in Tredegar House, might not be such a good idea. Only other idea is to postpone the meet up to the Tuesday and say that we would all meet up at Newport - Metro Centre in the Baby Cafe at 10am instead.

If the weather is okay on Friday,then brill we will all meet up as planned, but looking at the forecast it is planned for rain for the next few days. If not shall we say that we will rearrange to next Tuesday at 10am at the Metro Centre. Any other ideas ???

PeachyClair Wed 27-Jul-05 13:51:28

Can't do Tuesday morning before 11 unfortunately, sorry

poppy101 Wed 27-Jul-05 19:21:15

11am on the Tuesday would be fine if the weather is bad, will keep an eye on the forecast to check for Friday. If it is fine, we shall all meet up in the carpark at Tredegar House Park, if bad shall we say that we will rearrange for Tuesday at Metro Centre in Baby Cafe between 10.30 ish - 11ish.

poppy101 Wed 27-Jul-05 19:49:07

Englishbeauty mentioned she can't meet up next week, suggested that even it is raining that we all meet up this Friday at 10am in Newport Tredegar House Car park and go on from there, perhaps anyone can suggest where we could go on from ?

poppy101 Thu 28-Jul-05 13:12:27

Spoke to englishbeauty today, when we all meet up can we make sure that we meet up in the Tredegar Park Car Park, not the carpark near the House where you have to pay to go in but the other car park near the swings, if you need directions then CAT either englishbeauty or myself.

Tomorrow at 10am even if weather is bad.

poppy101 Thu 28-Jul-05 17:12:44

Katylou has replied that she is def. coming, will email directions to her tonight.

Englishbeauty is def. coming.

I am def. coming.

Will check about others

PeachyClair Thu 28-Jul-05 19:57:24


I am deffo coming as long as is dry, as DH needs to whip the car off to buy stock for work whilst we are there, therefore I wouldn't be able to go onto another venue if you all decided to.

So, where is the free car park? have been past on the way to hobbycraft but not in

poppy101 Thu 28-Jul-05 20:14:14

Have also emailed you with directions,

It is not the Tredegar House car park as we will get charged by the little man on the toll booth, they charge in the summer time.

The park that englishbeauty mentioned is the one opposite the Patent and Stats office, if you get off a J28 and go immediately left, past Tredegar House on your right, carry along the dual carriageway to Newport centre, A48, you will approach a roundabout, where if you carry on it leads to Cardiff Road - Tesco Extra, on the right is Duffryn estate and Stats office and Patent Office.
Take the left turn into the gates there is a park and a little keepers cottage I think, turn into the car park and meet us there. We will go on from there if it is wet.

See you tomorrow at 10am

PeachyClair Fri 29-Jul-05 10:42:59

Sorry it was pouring! Hope to meet you all soon thouhgh

Sun just peeping through now, typical

englishbeauty Fri 29-Jul-05 12:02:20
