Greater (?) Manchester

Recommended Posts

Guest jchrisj

There seem's to be quite a few pio's wanabe's in and around Manchester, heywood, bury etc etc ( wont say greater as cant think whats great about the place).

Do any of you fancy starting a monthly meeting, for drinks and generall chat somewhere where kids will be welcome.

Any favorite or recomended venues?

We are luckier than most as wife born in oz so we dont have the usual visa dillema's, But would love to meet likeminded people and maybe develop friendship that can carry over to oz when we all get there.

Let me now and if there is enough interest we will arrange something.:cool:

Right there seems to be some interest, Does anyone have a sugestion as to a venue, I want it to be kid friendly as it wouldnt be fair to ignore them.

What about the Clayton Green Oldham. Its a brewers fayre,Pub, Restraunt and has an indoor soft play area for the Kids. Its about 2 minutes from the oldham junction on the M62 (i think its junction 20). so should be pretty easy for everyone to find.

Im not fussy if its too far for some to travel, if there are any other sugestions please feel free to let us know. We can have a different venue for each pi@+ up, (sorry meant meeting).

If thats agreeable to everyone, all we need is a date and time.

Here is a link for the clayton. Brewers Fayre | Restaurants | Clayton Green

Looking forward to meeting y'all.

 

G'day

ALL and EVERYONE welcome, doesnt matter where your from or your circumstances. We are all chassing a common goal, life in Oz.

The more people there are, the more conversations there will be.

And being Oldham, it WILL rain. fnar fnar.

There have been people asking if they can come from Halifax and stalyvegas (that's a localism), ALL welcome, please come along, it will be nice to put faces to names.

 

We look forward to meeting everyone.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Just to let you know, from the car park, as you walk in the front door of the clayton green, on your right there are seats and tables for drinking (not dinning). We will be sat there.

Mum, dad, and the 2 kids might just be running round causing chaos......................Nothing new there then!

We look forward to meeting any that come for a chat, the more the merrier.

here is a link for directions Brewers Fayre | Restaurants | Clayton Green

 

Cheers
