Garden Party in support of Strive For Five

Good morning everyone, Iam attending this event and wondered who else from the forum is also intending to go, as it would be so nice if we could all get together. Lots of love D xxxx



Lovely to see you post again! Gosh that's a fair trek from Aberdeen!! I'm flying down easyJet for very little on 26th, back on 28th. Give me a wave over to Fife from the m90 on your way past!

Love to you both!

Karen 💛💜💙💚❤️


@Baxter2, we fly that route that you're doing very often as our children live in Bath and Bristol!

Bristol Airport is nice and small if you haven't been before :) Sometimes unfortunately we need the car down there! Sending lots of love and hope you're enjoying our long lasting Scottish heatwave!! :x: :x: :x:


Hi @Smiley2

Ahh that's good to hear! My lovely cousin will collect me and no doubt look after me until Penny Brohn timeat 5pm. Hope you both have a lovely break down there (maybe not so much of a break.....grandchildren??) I'm loving the weather. It's been amazing and can't remember the last time it rained!! (Maybe shouldn't have said that!)

Take care!

Karen :x::x::x:


I’d love to come if possible @DianeS . Can partners come ? Do I need to get a ticket ? It would be great to see everyone :x::x::x:


Hi @crispy - yes partners can go, it's open to all but Diane put it on here to encourage a few of us to go and meet up. You need to get a ticket in advance - go to the Strive for Five webpage and follow the link I suspect. I am just off to do it...


Thanks for that @Terrish . I’ll go to the link . Hope to see you there :x:


Hi @crispy - managed to buy a ticket so yes hope to see you there along with @springer michelle, @DianeS and looking forward to meeting new faces. Better get my gluten free baking off to a good start.

Sompleased that quite a few of you are able to come and really looking forward to meeting other forum members.
