    That's not true though - although an unnamed poster pressed what I presume to have been his keys against my arse in Sackville Park, all the while whispering filth to me...

    It was an ace day - we were all twatted, and I remember lying on the platform at Piccadilly because it felt cool, and doing starfish movements. Much to the bemusement of train passengers. :D

    I remember taking you all up the office* later that night to look over the spangly Manchester skyline.

    * not a euphemism

    Whatever happened to the lad from Congleton who is in the photo? Can't remember his username.

    I'd like to come. Would prefer either Saturday in Whit half term - May 26 or June 2 - but Saturdays are generally OK.

    Yeah, we went to the office in the quays before going to my flat up the road. I got you in with my security pass and we looked over the city centre from the top floor. Think of the big curved window.
  15. farmerbarleymow

    farmerbarleymow daft apeth

    Definitely come if you can. :cool:

    Yeah, it's a resolution this year to go see both people I haven't for ages and people I never have but should.

    I'm having second thoughts about this meet now. I had no idea what a wild beast farmerbarleymow appears to be and I'm not sure that Hebden is ready for him and his 'taking up the office' ways :hmm:

    farmerbarleymow daft apeth

    Your standing in Hebden could hardly be lower, so I couldn't have that much of an impact. :p

    I have absolutely no recollection of that at all :oops:

    I get the Hull train from Huddersfield to Dewsbury, and a train goes to Hebden from Dewsbury so it’s totally doable but idk if that’s the best way :hmm: That’s how I’ll get there anyway. Usually get a bus to ‘Fax then a train but that takes forever.

    I will come to this if my shifts allow. Won't know until closer to the summer though, so I won't vote just cross my fingers :)

    Going to take three hours and as many trains to get to Hebden whether I go via Sheff or Leeds :eek:
  25. Shirl

    Sheffield is way out of the way. Leeds would be shorter.
  26. S☼I

    S☼I knismesis & volubility

    It isn't...I can get direct to Sheff from here. Both journeys two changes and 3 hrs
  27. neonwilderness

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    It's almost as bad for me, one change and two and half hours. I could (almost) get to that London quicker :facepalm:

    I can't do May 19th or June 16th, other dates are ok I think :hmm:

    depending on dates I may be able to crash at my mates house in Halifax..... :hmm:

    Really do want to do this one

    train is looking like 4 1/2 hours and 4 changes! :eek:

    friendofdorothy it is so much worse than Thatcherism now

    I'm not sure if we are going to make this - according to its cheaper to stay in a hotel Rome than a room in Hebden Bridge, and a train return ticket from London will be £111.80 each. Yikes.

    We'd like to come if we can afford it.
