  • Hi. I couldn't see anyone in the clocktower cafe. LO is a bit restless so we're in the library. Is anyone coming to clocktower?

  • hippychick77 11-May-2016 11:04 Add message | Message poster

    Shall we stick to the original plan and meet at the Clocktower Cafe? We don't know when its likely to bucket down. When the kiddies get bored (approx 4 minutes after arrival), we can move to the children's library section.

    See you there at 1pm.

    Oh dear! Guess I should have checked forecast before suggesting the park!

  • hippychick77 10-May-2016 11:29 Add message | Message poster

    ...we may need to bring a brolly too!

    Just to let you know, rain is forecast for Wednesday so we may need to change venue at the last minute.

    See you all tomorrow - If you can't make it, please try and send a message on here.

    Thanks v much

    Maybe we can each bring a blanket in case we decide to sit on the grass?

    As the park is five minutes away, let's meet at Fairfield Halls. Let's hope the good weather continues!

    So, see you outside Fairfield Halls at 1pm on Wednesday.

  • Hello all, think I am being a bit slow on the uptake...so, we are meeting at the Clocktower and heading to the park? Or Fairfields and walking to the park

    It's a 5 minute walk from Fairfield halls. Totally up for starting there and moving to park :)

  • hippychick77 09-May-2016 14:26 Add message | Message poster

    Great suggestion about an outdoor venue - i'm not familiar with Park Hil and concerned about whether others may not know it also?

    If it is walkable, can we meet at the cafe as planned and then all head off together to the park?

    Yes love park Hill. Really pretty park! I'm up for swapping if everyone else is?

  • bundle4me 09-May-2016 10:03 Add message | Message poster

    Do you know Park Hill Park? It's not far from Fairfeild Halls, a short walk from central Croydon. It's really nice there.

  • thrifttwig 09-May-2016 09:40 Add message | Message poster

    Hey looking forward to Wednesday but just wondering if an outdoor venue swap might be nice? Lovely weather still? Cafe is quite small I'm a bit worried how long I'll be able to keep my toddler entertained for haha

    Hi. Look forward to meeting you all at Wednesday.

    Ok, so two things are apparent here: 1, tomorrow's meet up is probably not going to happen and 2. I have been a bit laid-back of late about the role of organiser!

    So anyway, lets change the last one. How about a meet-up next Wednesday 11 May at 1pm at the Clocktower Cafe, Croydon Library? The weather appears to be warming up so we can always move to an outdoor venue afterwards (time permitting).

    Anyone free to meet?

    I go to Totstars toddler group on Mondays at12:30pm-2pm on keeley road in Croydon. it's not open this bank holiday though

  • Evascoming 30-Apr-2016 11:01 Add message | Message poster

    There's always Croydon central library with the Clocktower cafe, if the weather doesn't improve (& I do have some books 2 months' past return date to take back)! Otherwise Coombe Woods are lovely: http://www.netmums.com/croydon/local/view/outdoor-play/parks/coombe-woods-south-croydon
    (which is a short walk from Coombe Lane tramstop, just after Lloyds Park), as the Coach house cafe is nice if weather too dismal for kids to run around outside!

    There's an NCTRUN bumps and babies group in Purley on a Wednesday. Not much else happening in Croydon as far as I know. We usually go to things in Bromley/Beckenham as there's stuff there.

    Well kids play might be OK just would hate for us all to turn up and it's closed! What about ones of those little playgroups at one of the churches? I don't really go to them but might be the answer until weather improves? Has anyone been to any that are good?

  • hippychick77 29-Apr-2016 21:49 Add message | Message poster

    Thanks Thriftwig and Priya87.

    Ok, so Beanies and Kidsplay are out! Any other suggestions?

    I can't do Wednesday I am afraid.

  • thrifttwig 29-Apr-2016 13:02 Add message | Message poster

    Yes I can do Wednesday but sorry to be bearer of bad news. Kids play in Addington is a nightmare! It's lovely inside but always closed last minute a when it's supposed to be open! I've been there on a few occasions when this has happened! Beanies is awful at the moment they've removed all the toys as they want it to be just a soft play. :(

    Hi everyone!

    Hope you are all well and wrapped up warm (can't believe it's nearly May).

    Anyway, not even rubbish weather can hold us back, right? - so who is up for a meet-up next Wednesday 4th May?

    Thornton Heath Leisure Centre is not an option anymore i'm afraid so it's back to square one. Anyone have any good recommendations for a venue?

    Kid play cafe in Addington?
    Beanies in the Whitgift Centre is central (though it can be chilly on
    occasion)
    Any other ideas?

    Hope to hear from you soon!
