Helo @jane-18 and Richard,
Are you planning to be at Cafe Bap at 11:00 On Monday 18th? I could be there, though I have to leave promptly at 12:00 to catch a bus. It would be good to meet you.
Sue

Hi John

I’m afraid it’s 1pm already and I’m still in work, so I don’t think I’m going to make today after all. I hope you enjoy your various goings-on next week, and we’ll see you after that.

Hwyl, Richard

A quick reminder about tomorrow’s meetup and that …

… next week I can’t make any meetups, so do let people know if you’re going and do a forum check to ensure it won’t be just you! :slightly_smiling_face:

  • Thursday, 21 March in The Royal Blenheim , St Ebbe’s/Pembroke St from 12 noon

#1270

I’m intending to go tomorrow, but as usual I will probably be rather late by the time I finish at work. Is anyone else expecting to be there?


#1271

Sorry, not me. I shall be at the dentist.
Sue

Helo pawb - it’ll be the usual pattern again for this week’s meetups - as always, all welcome :slightly_smiling_face::

  • Monday, 25 March from 11am in Café Bap , Abingdon Rd
  • Wednesday 27 March 8.30pm in James Street Tavern , James St., East Oxford (@s-coates1 @Laura_P_87 is this still the right day and venue?)
  • Thursday, 28 March in The Royal Blenheim , St Ebbe’s/Pembroke St from 12 noon

Hope you can make it to one (or more :slightly_smiling_face:) of these - I’m planning to be there on Monday and Thursday.

It’ll be the same pattern for next week’s meetups

As last week though, I won’t be able to make any meetups next week, so do let people know if you’re going and do a forum check to ensure it won’t be just you! :slightly_smiling_face:

And last but not least, thanks @Betterlatethan @cat-1 @bethan-williams-1 and Clive for today’s enjoyable meetup in the RB

And just received, an email from Prof Bob Evans with an invitation to his garden party:

Annwyl Bawb/Dear All, Gan fod y gwanwyn wedi cyrraedd, nodyn i roi gwybod y bydd ein parti gardd Cymraeg a Chymreig eleni dipyn yn hwyrach nag arfer: ar ddydd Sadwrn 8 Mehefin, o 12 o’r gloch ymlaen . Dyma’r unig ddydd Sadwrn yn y tymor sydd yn gyfleus i ni, fel mae’n digwydd! Ymddiheuriadau mawr i unrhyw un sy ddim yn rhydd ar y diwrnod yna. Anfonaf fanylion pellach yn nes at y dyddiad.

Welsh party this year on Sat 8 June, from 12 o’clock onward s. Pl put in diary! Further details to follow

Clive, @RichardBuck and I went last year, and the invitation is open to everyone in the SSiW Oxford group, and they welcome plantos by the way: We like children - our dog especially does. We have toys and games here, or they can bring their own. It’ll be good to welcome them to the party/Bydd yn wych croesawu plant i’r parti.

They live in Sunningwell, by the way, close by Abingdon - there isn’t a bus service unfortunately, but a lift can probably be arranged if needed :slightly_smiling_face:


#1277

I plan to be at Cafe Bap on Monday 1 April, as long as someone else will be there. I can’t be at Royal Blenheim on Thursday 4 April.
It was great to have 5 of us there today.
Sue


#1278

Thank you everyone for your enjoyable company this week at cafe Bap on Monday and RB on Thursday. You are a great group. I plan to go again to Cafe Bap on Monday April 1st. Diolch yn fawr, Bethan.:blush:


#1279

Hello is anyone planning to meet at Royal Blenheim tomorrow? I would be free to go there from 12.30 onwards, however don’t want to be there on my own! Hwyl Bethan.


#1280

Helo @bethan-williams-1
I really enjoyed chatting with you, @jane-18 and Richard.
Sorry, I have to be elsewhere on Thurs 4th, Mon 8th and Thurs 11th. I am planning to be at Cafe Bap on Mon 15th.
I hope that someone can make it tomorrow. I once sat there for half an hour on my own, then left, feeling a bit daft. Take a good (Welsh) book?
Following on from our conversation on Monday, I found this - read by a volunteer.
