Re: Spring meeting in Newcastle upon Tyne?

Some alternative views of Newcastle.

Should've gone to Specsavers

I've seen the writing on the wall

Are you sure this is where you lost your penny?

Re: Spring meeting in Newcastle upon Tyne?

Thanks everyone for making sure that this went ahead, and it was really good to put faces to names and to try to match with our avatars/nicknames!

Thanks Ulfric too for the lift in to Toon, and very impressed with your lad's knowledge!

I had a good drink / chat with Jim at the Tyneside Cinema bar and then went with Jim and a friend to Morden Tower and Blackfriars as part of the Late Night event. I ended up nearly inviting a very knowledgeable lady to come and live with me - purely of course because she was so enthusiastic and full of good information about how to look after a Georgian Listed Building - luckily she didn't pick up on the offer and I'm not in the dog house at home! Hope you had a good trip south Jim on Sunday - did you try out any of the ducks that were on show at the back of Chinatown?

Can't believe how lucky we were with the weather, and hopefully by the end of the day I'll have sorted out some photos to link to the other thread.

Re: Spring meeting in Newcastle upon Tyne?

I have been pretty busy with work and a trip to the Shepherd Neame Brewery in Kent (I was driving ) over the last two weeks, so have just about had time to post pics. I had a great time and thanks for those who organised. It is also great to find out that members of the Forum are as nice in real life as they are online. Chris I would have liked to go down to the castle with you but hunger and tiredness were taking their toll. Hope it was worth doing. I have one shot I missed out - the M&M man. I met him in a cafe before we met up. He was proud of the jacket which he bought in Las Vegas on of of his 8 trips!
