mummyhill Mon 25-Jul-05 19:44:33

Will give you a lift if you need one whimsy

WigWamBam Mon 25-Jul-05 19:46:56

Depending on where it is (and whether I could get there) I'd be up for it.

I'm in Sutton Coldfield with a 4 year old.

wino2 Tue 26-Jul-05 21:48:20

Im in Solihull. Just joined. Let me know where youre meeting. Anyting worth a try with three fighting kids!!

LunarSea Wed 27-Jul-05 09:40:33

wino2 - if you ever manage to escape from them you could try the Solihull evening meetup too.

Depends when and where.... I'm working full time, so anything midweek would depend upon being able to get time off, and that in turn depends upon other people not being on holiday so that they could cover for me. I'm in the Leamington/Warwick area by the way.

aku Wed 27-Jul-05 13:38:31

will like to come depending on where you meet. have 6 yr dd and five month old dds.

mummyhill Wed 27-Jul-05 16:08:50

aku - where are you? So we can find a location fairly central!!

HappyHuggy Wed 27-Jul-05 16:18:15

im in birmingham not too far from you mommyhill

are you a police officer?

mummyhill Wed 27-Jul-05 16:32:44

No why?

HappyHuggy Wed 27-Jul-05 16:38:27

got you mixed up with someone then

mummyhill Wed 27-Jul-05 16:40:32

No probs.

mummyhill Wed 27-Jul-05 16:42:16

So where shall we meet and when? I would rather not travel too far if i can help it as i am currently 34/40 preggers. And dh would have a fit if i went too far away from Good Hope especially as i will have the car!!!!!!!

Carlk Wed 27-Jul-05 17:00:46

Can I play?
seriously I'm not a mum but DD 15 months loves meeting other kids

LunarSea Wed 27-Jul-05 17:39:27

Aku - are you still in Kenilworth - or am I thinking of someone else?

ronniebaby Wed 27-Jul-05 21:08:55

HHugs, you are south birmingham, MHill is north.

Carlk - anyone is welcome as long as they have kids.

AKU - you are welcome also, with your DD's.

I have DS's, a 5 year old and a 7 month old, as stated I live in Tamworth, but have wheels so can get anywhere. (Knat if you are coming I can pick you up). I may also invite my childminder & her son, so there will be maybe more.


Is it easier for most people to get to Sutton Park, as we could take a picnic (Bikes/scooters - for kids obviously), take a football &/or baseball, have a little walk around the park etc.

The other alternative is Canon Hill Park, which is in Birmingham (Central), but last time I went there it wasnt that nice???

Lets get some dates etc on the table. So here are mine.


Tuesdays or Thursdays are best for me. I can do 9th, 11th, 16th, 18th, 25th (after 12.30pm), 30th

Anyone got any suggestions or dates they can/cant do???

Hope all is well with everyone xx

Carlk Thu 28-Jul-05 07:59:37

I've not been to Sutton park , but have a car I could also find room for up to 2 adults and 1 child seat (or combination) if anyone needs a lift
I am in SW Brum (B32).
I often go to Canon Hill as the MAC is a good place for a chat/coffee if the weather is iffy, we used to meet up with our NCT group friends there.
Any day is fine with me.

mummyhill Thu 28-Jul-05 08:05:13

Sutton Park sounds great Ronnie - Town Gate would probably be best as they have a good playarea, dog free footie area (alegedley) there is wyndley pool in easy walking distance to feed the ducks and if it is open there is the donkey sancturay not far off as well. Can manage any of the dates you listed.

HappyHuggy Thu 28-Jul-05 09:08:00

where evers fine with me, im in south birmingham and my boys are 3 and 1

will fit in with your dates

WigWamBam Thu 28-Jul-05 09:11:28

The best play area in Sutton Park is at Banner's Gate, nice modern equipment, soft surface, blah blah blah. The one at Town Gate is a bit neglected these days.

Mummyhill ... what donkey sanctuary is that, then?
