Yes, of course - the more the merrier! :slightly_smiling_face:


Diolch @ChristopherSchenk @john-28 @chris-roberts & Clive for the sgwrs in Cafe Bap yesterday :slight_smile:

While I’m at it, a quick reminder about our midday RB meetup tomorrow and also about the Cinio Nadolig, Doodle poll (although I know some of you first need to sort out other stuff in December :slightly_smiling_face:)

Also, if you haven’t already do let me know if you’re thinking of possibly joining the walk on Sat 9th Nov

Hwyl, John


PS At the moment Thu 19th Dec & Fri 13th Dec (day after election, so an opportunity to drown your sorrows/celebrate as the case maybe :slightly_smiling_face:) are the most popular dates, but this may change. If you can’t say yet which dates work for you but can let me know which dates you definitely won’t be able to make, that’ll help a lot :slightly_smiling_face:


I might make it to Royal Blenheim after all. Daughter leaving early so I should be free.


Sorry I’ve been a bit busy/lackadaisical/absent lately – back to semi-regular Fridays as of next week :slight_smile:


Hello @johnwilliams_6 / everyone. Given that my December work rota is still showing no signs of appearing I think you should probably go ahead and choose a date without me and I’ll join you if I can and if there’s still room for me by then. I definitely can’t do the 1st, 9th, 10th, or 11th. I’m definitely free on the 12th.


Diolch, @chris-roberts :slightly_smiling_face:


Good news! I just heard from Mike that, depending om the date and numbers, they’d be able to host us again at Cafe Bap for Cinio Nadolig this year :slightly_smiling_face:
Numbers might be a problem though as they only just managed to squeeze in eleven of us last year, and this year we’re up to twelve already who’ve said they want to come plus a possible couple extra who came last year but haven’t got back to me yet …


I’ve just bunged in the most likely dates for me in Dec but I can see that the 13th is good for everybody! I can try and arrange school pick up help if this is the one everyone else can come to. I know I can’t do 19th because school breaks up at 1.30


Diolch Cat - yes, it’s looking as if the 13th may be the date - Chris can’t confirm though until his rota’s been confirmed and Rebecca wants to join us but hasn’t ‘Doodled’ yet …


I’ll make sure to organise something for the 13th then - I bet Mike will knock a wall through so we can all fit in :smile::smile:


Cinio Nadolig :santa: - Just heard from Rebecca that she can make the 13th - does 13th Dec work for you @claireesau? If so, and if @chris-roberts’ forthcoming rota permits, we’ve got a date that works for everyone! :slightly_smiling_face:


Cinio Nadolig :santa: - Wel, dydd Gwener 13eg Rhagfyr /Fri 13th December is now the ‘official’ date, :grinning:

Cafe Bap is keen to organise this for us again, but I’m waiting to hear from Welsh Mike if they can do it on that date (if not we’d need to make alternative arrangements). For those who weren’t at last year’s meal, they closed Cafe Bap for couple of hours and managed to fit in eleven of us (coincidentally, the same number as this year).

Last year the meal was originally mooted for 1pm-3pm but Cafe Bap brought it forward an hour for us to 12-2pm to hopefully allow more time to collect kids from school. Cafe Bap suggested the menu beforehand which included a veg option for each course

Get in touch if you have any questions

Hwyl, John


@johnwilliams_6 works for me!


That’s great! :slightly_smiling_face:


I now have my December shifts and I very conveniently have a day off on the 13th, so I can confirm that I’ll be able to come to the Cinio Nadolig :slightly_smiling_face: :upside_down_face: :slightly_smiling_face:


13 December at 12-2 would be great for Cinio Nadolig. I hope that Mike can have us.

Sorry, but I can’t make it tomorrow 6 Nov. I have a committee meeting. I’m not sure about Friday 8 Nov. I have to be in Headington, but I might make it back in time.


I can’t make it tomorrow either but I should be there on Friday.


Sorry I can’t make it today, 6th November, but I hope to come next week, 13th November, and I have put Cionio Nadolig in my diary for 13th December


I was planning to go to Cafe Bap today just checking if anyone else will be there? Bethan
