Went to view a different Hall for my groups meeting on Saturday --- our booking had been double booked by the caretaker to a wedding, so I have missed out there. Bit cross actually as we booked it in April, I have worked really hard at getting everything ready for this the biggest meeting of the year for us. If it weren't for the fact it is a wedding, I would insist on having the hall. But there you go. I cant compete with a Bride. ---
Anyway, went to view this other place,---after Suzanne had been phoning round everywhere, all weekend, to try and get somewhere, fat chance really this time of year!
Well now; if you put aside the potholes in the car park, the fact it is about 3miles from our normal place we meet, the windows --- did I say windows??? --- are boarded up, the floor is tiled [think people slipping!!] the kitchen is along a corridor away from the action, no stage, I guess you would probably say its an OK sort of hall. Yeah, rite!
Sorry Suzanne, I know you tried really hard for me, but I just cant go there, fraid not, not for my ladies. I couldn't take the responsibility of the car park, especially after chappie said,
"there are gangs of lads around."
They may, they may not have problems there, I am not willing to take the risk. SO, sadly, for only the second time since I started this group. I have had to CANCEL. :-(
I am so disappointed about this, as it is the last meeting of the year for us, and we have such a great time at this one particularly. So......
I have decided we will have our Christmas meeting in February next year. Why not! Could be fun. Will certainly be different.
This evening I went onto PP site and found I had won some Christmas fabrics, along with Ruth and Brenda. So at the end of this day I have a smile on my face....at last.. Thank you PP.
