Hi.... just wondering if:
1) anyone is "in charge" in any form or shape with the Surrey local site - are tsarinas still around? do we have a local editor?
2) is there a set Friendship Bench - is it a tread / webpage?
3) if the answer to the above is no we don't have one for Surrey - can we / should we create one?

EmmaMNHQ, I'm looking at you! wink

Hang on I think I found it - it's under Meet-ups, on the Local site

OK, found the page, it's empty, how can I get myself to sit on the bench so that I can go and drag others with me

Tis I, EmmaMumsnet, using a different nickname. The Friendship Bench works like a Talk Thread and is designed for one-to-one meet-ups.

If you'd prefer to organise a Group Meet-up I can set you up with a page like this one

You can then create a talk thread the Local Talk discussions topic with a link to your Group Meet-ups page.
