GC meet up at Gardeners’ World Live!

GW

I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but seeing ‘Gardeners’ World Live’ advertised recently it occurred to

me that it could present  the perfect opportunity for another clicker meet-up. :-)

It’s being held at the NEC Birmingham so a good central location for us to travel to and at a time of year when we can hope for some sunshine.

Gardeners’ World Live

My aim is to go on the first day, 15th June, and would love to have some clicker company.

Any takers? Hope so! :rose:

    Standing here like a 5 year old, waving my arms and jumping up and down, “Yes Miss, please Miss – count me in”. I’d love to meet as many as can manage in person again – and bugga the Gardeners’ World Live, as long as we have somewhere to sit/stand and chat…..

    Spent an hour with Mick P this afternoon he’s at the event every day and looking forward to meeting up with clickers again .Its quite a walk from station into exhibition halls, but all under cover and several short stretches of moving pavement

      Great news Tony! I’m sure Micky is traveling all over the place with his composting advice :good: I’m sure there will be others heading to the event from the station so perhaps we can arrange a pre-meet!

  11. Profile photo of cilla cilla says:

    That will be fun then Tony. I’ve never seen moving pavement….like an escalator on the flat?

  12. Profile photo of Walt Walt says:

    I shall do my best to be there :good:

    My friend Joan said this morning she would come with me to meet the clickers I’ve told her so much about :good:

  14. Profile photo of gonewest gonewest says:

    That sounds like fun, but I won’t know till nearer the time if I can make it. Can’t see why not at the moment though. I’ll make a note on my calendar. It’ll be good to see you all again, and maybe some new people too.

    Been talking with Mick P this evening, his talks have been reduced to one on the Friday and one on Saturday, 4.30 both days and just 30 minutes.. It seems the “stars” are a bit worried by his popularity, its not the first time a certain well know garden presenter has tried to take over Micks composting talks :bad:

    That’s a shame Tony.

    Would’ve loved to have met up again, but already having girlie weekend with my sis and sis in law, then got Glastonbury at the end of the month, so will have to be an onlooker from afar on the blogs and photos to come along after :good: :-)

    Are you ‘doing’ Glasto in any way or just a day visit Karen? Our son and his wife get involved each year and are Stewards there. It raises money for their local school in some way. My friend Zena also goes and does face painting activities there. :rose:

    Mickyp will be on the NVS stand each day, nearer the day will post his mobile phone number so he can be located [ have micks approval to do this]

    Sadly, neither can I go this time … it’s the weekend of Dom’s knee op :rose: Next time, and give my best to MickyP too :good: :rose:

    So, it’s getting close to our meet up! If anyone else has decided to come last minute, PM me before you buy the tickets as I may have a few spare ones going begging. :good: :-) :lol:

      Do we need to set a time/place where we can find everyone H? Don’t know what size it is, but I’m guessing it will pretty big. ;-)

      • Profile photo of Beanstew Beanstew says:

        Think that is a very good suggestion – and one I would find useful, never having been to the venue before. An idea of TIME would be useful too. I could leave here on a train about 5am if a 10am meet-up is decided on (but obviously, would prefer to catch a slightly later one). Suggestions about this would be welcome ASAP

      • Profile photo of Hayley Hayley says:

        Yes indeed we do K :good: I’ve messaged K’s friend to ask if there’s a ‘meeting place’ set up, pretty sure there will be.
        I’ve just been looking at the floor plan, it appears there are three entrances so maybe if we met by the bandstand which looks to be pretty central?

          Bandstand looks good H, maybe around 12? so that Sheila can get a more sensible train? And for those who are there early it can serve as a coffee/lunch break as there are food stalls beside it.

    I have pre booked our parking ticket which saves having to queue on the day.

  24. Profile photo of cilla cilla says:

    And don’t forget the tissues, you know what we’re like on meeting and leaving. :lol:

    If any one wants Micks mobile number to contact him on the day I will send a PM
