Posted:If you are already here then you know what spinny fun can be had (even if it is slacky at the moment) and if your in the area or fancy coming to one of the meets then this is the thread for you. We are a friendly bunch of 'spinners' who love to meet up for spinny goodness biggrin



If your just passing through our little town and fancy meeting up just PM me and i will see what we can do.



this is where we spin





GATHERINGS





Next one is 13th-14th september wink........



Main Meets are the second weekend of every month (usualy)

ROLL ON THE SUN!! . Well there is nothing i can do about the cold or the wet or the wind so its meets at mine smile which is rather fun and we have a nice piece of park land less than 5 minutes from my house,(we can go to riv too as that is the main park in town and only 20 minutes from my house)the park near my house it also rather good for a bit of power kiting if the wind is good enough and not too gusty.This is very handy if it is a bit of a dodge weather day as if the sun comes out its easy to quickley pop out.As for near by shops,i live just up the road from our local green which does have shops a bargain booze, takeaways etc.

PK

Pilchard (not on Hop but went to play)

Lucy.. at UNI.. we miss her

Nichola..

Gooooooooodie ? on spelling that right "





the plan usualy goes like this... wink



First day around 12pm till when ever you have to go firey fun around 8-9 - Sunday meet at mine 1pm (unless you have stopped over) same as above but with firey fun around 9



If i have enough wood then there is a fire out the back so we can sit around and keep warm.My house is a non smoking house because of the kids although that is another reason why we sit outside as i do not mind smoking in the garden. Also feel free to bring food and drink too, you are more than welcome to use my cooker and the general rule is.. use it clean it smile



Both the park and my house are not far from the train or bus staion









PM me if you need any more information or if you wish to be added to the HOPpers in town list

biggrin hug

Posted:Bah, you assulted my lovely unicycle! And you were the only one who managed to injure themselves using it rolleyes

Beautiful day, fantastic people and much fun was had. I may not be quite upto wobbling unaided yet, but I'm definately improving with the one-wheel thing smile

And here I was listening to people from work telling me that Nuneaton was bad! A nice bandstand in case of rain, lots of pretty scenery (and a river complete with ducks) a museum/art gallery/cafe a minutes walk away, a Sainsburys (with toilets!) 2 mins walk away and even a couple of newlywed horses. I mean, a couple with a horse and carriage, having their pictures taken trying to ignore the gathering of "strange" people behind them smile

I'll definately be up for another gathering again in a few weeks Miss Fwroggy (And you too Poirate Pegleg smile)

Bah, you assulted my lovely unicycle



Picture this: You're lying on the ground, blood gushing from several deep gouges from your leg caused by a unicycle's pedels with sharp bits on, and the lovely Sir_Sheep is more worried about an inanimate object than you eek
