Meet up in Bristol


Okay guys - so 7.30 it is then. And Tall Paul is happy to meet up next week. Anyone interested, let him/us know. I can’t, but others might. What fun!


Great to to see so much interest in this happening and big thanks to @Tall_Paul for pushing this forward. I’ll be there for the October meet up. Really looking forward to it


Wonderful - thanks George. See you there.


Hey guys and girls, my names Dan and I currently live in Bristol and originally from Pontypool and would be up for possible future meets? :blush:


Hello Dan - we are planning to meet up at the Tobacco Factory in Southville the second Tuesday of the month starting in October, 7.30-9.00. All levels, cos I have only just started! You would be very welcome to join us.


Would that be the 12th? I’m due for an operation on the 7th and just wondering whether I’ll be up to walk about by then but if I do miss it, is this going to be regular you reckon? Thanks for the open invitation and welcome :blush:


Yes, that’s right. It would be the 12th. I think the plan is that we hope to continue regularly after that. But don’t worry about the first meeting, just come when you can. And good luck with that operation!


Hi all, sorry for delay in replying,

The second Tuesday of the month is good for me. All on the calendar and just to confirm October 12th / November 9th / December 14th ?? 7.30pm the Tobacco Factory, Southville ? (bandit country as i’m a Rovers fan !)

I worked down there donkeys years ago and the parking was a free for all. I understand its now residents parking and as I’m coming from S. Glos, i have to drive. Any ideas for parking ?


… and @dan-finch365, if you need a lift as its difficult walking i could pick you up if i’m passing ??


Parking is free after 5 00 pm I think. And the Aldi car park is right next door to the Tobacco Factory. I am not sure what the regulations are there, but parking should not be a problem.


Diolch yn fawr, maen gret ! gwelwch chi 12 mis hydref !


Hey lovely people, not going to lie with you all but I suffer with my anxiety quite a bit and although I’ve been in Bristol almost two years I don’t have any friends yet so any help or encouragement you give me means the world if I’m honest.

I live in Horfield area if anyone knows where that is? I don’t know if I should do an introduction here or on another thread. Hope you’re all staying safe out there and thanks for the patience with this nervous Welshman x


Hello Dan - bless you, you would be very welcome to come along to our Bristol meet ups at the Tobacco Factory the second Tuesday of each month, starting in October. Otherwise, SSiW is by Internet and zoom meetings etc. I have started only recently myself, but they are a super friendly bunch and very supportive. For those, I think you post on the Introduce Yourself channel. Very best wishes for learning Welsh. Paul
