Hi

Hi everyone, just joined, am keen to meet others of a like mind in my area which is Derby.
I’m very sociable & am wanting to expand my ‘ms world’ as I call it .. Who’s out there ?
It would be great to be able to make new friends & meet up socially rather than just on line..
Louise 😃

Hi Louise

I live 75 miles away in Leeds so cant help directly. There is an MS branch in Derby and an MS Activity centre.

They may be useful.

Hi Louise, am in Stoke, so not too far away. Up until 5 weeks ago could have travelled to you, but mr government has taken my disability car away (after 19 years) so can’t go anywhere now docs, dentist, hospital, shopping let alone to social activities, but we are a wonderful group of people so make friend requests and we can talk all day!

Thank you guys, sorry for late reply 😳. Had checked out the connect button already but thank you. Cheers Stumbler 😊.
Thanks Bullman, yeah I’ve been a member for about 10 years, was looking for something a bit more , I don’t know, ‘up beat’ maybe ☺️
Hey grandma, sorry bout the car situation, that’s crap 😬. I gave up driving last summer but hung onto my van so others could take me places (I use public transport the rest of the time) so could possibly meet at some point ? Stokes only bout 40 mins from me up the A50. I’m not great at ‘on line’ as you may have noticed as you messaged me two weeks ago 😆. But I’ll make a concerted effort.
Thanks all of ya, ll keep in touch 😃 x

Hi Louise, I don’t meet up with anyone from this site but I am keen to and I am mobile so can get to you. Looks like you have a few people interested already so let me know if things move forward. Andy

Hey Andy, that sounds like a plan ! If the folks that have already expressed an interest in meeting can all get together on the same day ( & I could even put another message up to see if there’s anyone else interested ) that would be great.
Would Derby or Burton on Trent be too far for you to travel ? I was thinking Jill maybe interested & Greyham.
I know Burton well, & Derby a bit & a few of the accessible decent pubs/ cafes .. what do ya recon ? 🧐, Louise

Hey Jill, hope you’re well. I’ve tried contacting u on the mobile no u gave me as u said u wouldn’t have intent for a wile but no joy getting hold of you. . You must be so busy having a good time u haven’t the chance to check messages 😆😆😆. So I guess we will have to take a rain check & get together another time.
How would u fancy meeting up in a group ? Andy said he would & I have a friend from up the road who’s keen, maybe greyham would like to too ? I’m thinking we could put a shout out on here & see who’s interested ? What do ya recon … feel summers just round the corner 🌞 x
