can it be somewhere with good parking - there is nothing worse than driving round and round looking for parking in a place you don't know!! emoticon

I know what you mean about the buffet, we went to a Weatherspoons last time which was quite handy for New Street Station, only problem was....it was a real dive. I don't go into Brum these days so I don't know what's good & what's not.
The 21st is good for us though.

I will ask around to see if anyone can suggest a venue in Birmingham. Broad Street has a lot of places & I have heard good things about a restaurant called Around the world in 80 dishes which is £9 something for a Buffet, open on a Sunday but it's a bit of a walk from New Street Station & I'm not sure how accessible it is. Will let you know.

Julia, that's great news, but you could always bring him with you.....the more the merrier.
Some people are unsure about meeting up with strangers (albeit longstanding Sparkfriends) for the first time so it's easier if you bring someone with you, friend, partner whoever.
We will just be happy to meet anyone who turns up.

I think we should go with where the majority want it, so shout up folks!!!!
I agree with a more central point (as long as the majority goes with it) as it would be certainly closer for myself.
Birmingham would be an interesting day out for myself, so that gets my vote unless you could swing a Leicester shout!

As the last Sunday Lunch was in Telford, I think we should be looking towards the middle of the Midlands. (Sorry Linda). Really we need to think about somewhere easy to get to by road, rail, or bus on a Sunday......maybe those of us with our own transport could offer lifts to other members....just a thought. Pete & I will be there, where ever you decide.

OK folks, lets get one in before the festivities of Christmas start.
Already one shout for Telford, and also a comment from our Glorious leader to get smart with our best togs! Sounds a great challenge for me but, I'm sure that you can meet the criteria without too much bother!
So, team, start by giving yeys or neys and your desired venue to give us some idea.
Thanks,
Chris.

Sent a message to Jude last night but not sure if she's picked it up yet. Sorry folks but I can't get to the lunch either. The trains that I thought would be easy don't run properly on a Sunday and it would take me about 3.5hrs to get there (and that was before they decided to do work on the Wolverhamption line!!) Now, as I said to Jude, I love you folks dearly but not that much!!
Anyway if anyone else picks this up and Jude hasn't can you pass my apologies on and have a wonderful time.

Sorry to be a bearer of bad news, there are NO trains between Wolverhampton and Telford Central, due to Engineering Works on the line. I'm also sorry that I'm unable to make it. I'll want to know when the next one is though. Thanks.

Table is booked for 10 people (only 7 going so far) for 12pm. I reckon if we all arrive between 12 & 12.15 we should be able to get ordered by say 12.30.
If anyone still wants to come please please don't be shy, come along & meet us. We don't bite. (well not too hard!!)

Sorry folks, I know it's the 11th hour so to speak but, to coin a Dragons Den phrase..........I'm out!

Sorry, but I now need to go to Gatwick for 11:00 on the 12th to take my Step Daughter and family on holiday, as their car has just died and the Taxi is so expensive from here to there!
I just can't see me making it from there up to Telford before 2-2:30, so I guess I'm going to have to pull the rip cord this time around.
I shall send Fred on his own instead!

I know that the beefeater used to have tables outside at the back (before it became a beefeater), but don't know if they are still there.

There is a set of covered picnic tables in the town park but that would only be any good if any rain was slight, would not help if it was pelting down.

With the weather being so unpredictable, maybe the Beefeater and if the weather is so nice and there is room, maybe they have tables outside? Depending on our numbers.

I love picnics too! Think it goes back to having them with my nan in the local woods (many, many moons ago). Whats wrong with a picnic in the rain anyway!! The Beefeater sounds good to me though as I'll probably come by train so it needs to be somewhere local.

I guess the Beefeater is looking tops at the moment.
I still like the outdoor option of a park and picnic but, I guess thats at the mercy of the weather!

Jude said the Beefeater was very good and it is in a handy location for people to get to. Plus it has a big car park.

The beefeater is certainly the easiest to find for anyone coming on public transport (right on the same car park as the railway station). Frankie and Bennys is very close to the motorway exit, as is Pizza hut. There is also a carvery but they don't book tables for Sunday afternoons it's just a turn up and hope there's space, which last time we decided was not a good idea, with people coming some distance.

As I said it is highly unlikely that Andrew and I will be able to make it to anything on the 12th as even if we're not driving our eldest down to Bath I will be taking the youngest to the food festival.

And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep, and sink in good oblivion, and in the morning wake like a new-opened flower, then I have been dipped again in God, and new-created.
