Bristol meet-up - Saturday 18th May 2024

Not long at all now till our meet! :partying_face:

As the weather looks a bit changeable, I’ve asked Charles for a suitable inside meeting place, there is a shop just inside the entrance to the SS Great Britain, so let’s meet just in front of the shop at 11am :hugs:

For those who wish to just meet for lunch and the card signing, we’ll see you at the Harbourside Kitchen at 1pm, just a reminder that I wasn’t able to book a table but hopefully we should be okay!

Looking forward to seeing you all there! :heart:

Yay, really glad you can make it! :grin:

This time tomorrow we’ll be on board the SS Great Britain :ship: !

For those who are driving, this car park is just next to the ship.

It’s £12.50 for 5 hours but when visiting the ship (for those coming aboard) you can get it reduced down to £5. Pay the full amount when you arrive and then get it reduced while at the attraction :slightly_smiling_face:

However a couple of things to note:

You can’t pay at the car park with card or notes - only coins, or you can use the RingGo app to pay by card.

There’s a maximum of 5 hours parking, should be fine for the meet but if you are planning to arrive early or stay late, please take that into account!

Also if you’re driving, please don’t forget to check if you need to pay to enter the Ultra Low Emission Zone

Looking forward to it! :partying_face:

Good thinking @CEBooth - it looks like rain from lunchtime! :umbrella:

For those who haven’t met me before, I’ll be wearing black jeans and a long sleeved black and white flowery top. I have shoulder length brown hair!

I’m en route to Bristol. My coach from Reading was early departing! Not sure how a westbound M4 closure in the Reading area might affect timings though, as we’re currently taking a scenic route through some villages…

Currently between Swindon and Chippenham on the M4. The Flixbus coach has been trundling along for the past hour or so with a warning light and buzzer indicating a critical level of soot in the exhaust which needs urgent workshop attention.

Oh no @chrisbonham11 - guessing you might not arrive for 11 then!!!

Still moving, currently between Chippenham and Bath. I doubt I’ll make 11:00 at this rate, hence please head onto the ship without me.
