Hi Julie

I am also a member of Northants and MK so if you need any help just get in touch.

Hi Bob,

In fact the Northants and MK branch much be one of the best, if not THE BEST, represented branches on this Forum. Unless someone else knows better?

When Philip was a member (only recently departed for southern climes) I think our total here was up to 6. (My earlier count of 4 was an underestimate, or then again maybe I just can't count!)

Cheers,
Colin

Thanks Colin and Bob. :)

I think I might be a wee bit out of the way.. it's a good 45 mins to Northampton from Corby..

Hi Julie
Apparently the Kettering branch would be closer to you, not sure if we have a Kettering member on the forum ??.
Any volunteers to collect Julie for a first trip to a BCSS meet

Oh, there is one in Kettering! :o

Still might be tricky getting a lift on a weekday though.. which would be sort of 2 lifts, as my dad would be bored silly by anything small, green, and not containing a steam engine.

Edit - had a peep at the site, they don't have a page, and 7:30 would be too early for me to get there, and I bet they don't finish till late...

Nice idea though. I will most likely not end up in the middle of nowhere when I have a job, as I'll live near the new workplace... probably in a biggish town. So there has to be a nearby branch.
