Cowart's Common Room
West Country Meet

Determined not to let that Welsh lot have it all their own way EJ and I have arranged a meet for Friday 14th November, 11:30 in South Molton. There's a cafe called The New Place where I am assured that good coffee and compulsory cake is available. It is situated in the middle of the Square at the opposite end to the chemist on the island in the middle.

All West Country Coos welcome.

LittleBrownDog's Avatar Grrrr - v envious! Mad South Molton just a little too far - well - south for me. And the 14th is a school day, so a bit tricky. Mind you, good coffee and compulsory cake sounds just up my ally... Wink .

Toady's Avatar Should have said ALL Coos welcome, if you can make it.

Posted by: Toady on 6th Nov 2008 at 06:53PM

Faith's Avatar I'd really love to come too, and South Molton is only a stone's throw from where my sister lives in Landkey, but..... I'd need more notice to come to Devon.

Posted by: Faith on 6th Nov 2008 at 06:55PM

Crystal Jigsaw's Avatar Oh gosh, I didn't mean the sad face for that reason!!! I meant I was sad because I can't make it - it's too far away. I'd love to meet you ALL.

Here's my happy face, when I do meet you - Very Happy

Back in Ireland now....and have hung me coracle and oars up until the New Year unfortunately!!!

South Molton is gorgeous...have fun.

Posted by: Salle de Bain on 6th Nov 2008 at 10:05PM

Westerwitch's Avatar Well may I suggest you all take the scenic route via Scotland . . . only add a few . . . um . . hours . . . onto the journey.

. . .sigh . . . so envious.

Posted by: Westerwitch on 6th Nov 2008 at 10:10PM

Toady's Avatar As I'm going over on the bus I'd better leave now if I'm going via Scotland.

Posted by: Toady on 6th Nov 2008 at 10:12PM

Ivy's Avatar If my aunt wasn't living in mums cottage at the mo I would seriously consider to come along....

Posted by: Ivy on 6th Nov 2008 at 10:22PM

Mountainear's Avatar Very tempting but the 14th is spoken for I'm afraid. Have a lovely time. Eat cake. Lots of it.

Posted by: Mountainear on 6th Nov 2008 at 10:42PM

I really want to come too - but cannot. I am in the Cotswolds that day racing at Chetenham. It's countryside day at their Open Meeting and I cannot miss it. It is the meeting for the Thoroughbred Breeders Association of which I am a regional rep so I am actually working.

Shame - can I clone myself for the day?

I know that coffe shop, and must say that is has the best coffee for totally miles and miles round here. It is about an hour from us but we still go there.

Great tiny gift shop just next door which is stuffed with wonderful things.


Posted by: Crucifix on 6th Nov 2008 at 10:51PM

Frances's Avatar Oh, how I wish I could be there with you all. One of these days! I know that you all will have a wonderful day. Tell us all about it. What kind of cake?


Posted by: Frances on 7th Nov 2008 at 01:28AM

Exmoorjane's Avatar Darn it. Cruci, we'll just have to have another one (oh dear...what a shame!) Have a great day at the racing.
Eeek, I'm not really a cake person (shush my lips!) but as I recall they do a mean several others. We will report.

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 7th Nov 2008 at 07:44AM

Pipany's Avatar Oh would love to come but even South Molton is too far for me at the moment. Another one next year maybe? Have a great time all xx

Posted by: Pipany on 7th Nov 2008 at 08:08AM

I shall be on the train from St. Austell to Exeter, so where do I get off for South Molton?

Posted by: Quilting Cat on 7th Nov 2008 at 08:28AM

Have looked at map, tis too far from Exeter where I get my connection home. Bath or Exeter next time please!

Posted by: Quilting Cat on 7th Nov 2008 at 08:32AM

Toady's Avatar Don't worry Jane, I'll eat yours.

Posted by: Toady on 7th Nov 2008 at 08:40AM

Exmoorjane's Avatar Noooo, not that far QC.....but tricky to get to, I agree. But Exeter would be a great idea for another one.....or if we did Bath could haul in Milla and LBD as well. This could grow.....

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 7th Nov 2008 at 09:35AM

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Certainly Bath or Bristol would work for me. Possibly Exeter. Wht fun!

Posted by: Arosebyanyothername on 7th Nov 2008 at 09:58AM

South molton Thats quite close to Wales isn't it ??

Posted by: Bodran on 7th Nov 2008 at 10:24AM

LittleBrownDog's Avatar YES PLEASE, BATH BATH BATH!! Very Happy. (You all look as though you could do with a good scrub Twisted Evil)

Posted by: LittleBrownDog on 7th Nov 2008 at 10:30AM

Woozle1967's Avatar No Bodran it's NOT!Rolling Eyes But knowing you and that scooter.... tee hee.!!

Seriously though, would normally make the trip (love driving) but dark nights and all that....... Bath would be fab (Bristol - aaargh - one way system from hell and all that traffic). Will be coming down your way next year to visit friends so would love to do a meet up Devon/Cornwall borders (they live in Delabole) then. BTW - LBD and yours truly are trying to organise a meet up to go to the Westonbirt Chritmas lights 28 Nov-21 Dec. xx

Posted by: Woozle1967 on 7th Nov 2008 at 10:31AM

if i could drive i'd be there....

Posted by: DevonLife on 7th Nov 2008 at 10:39AM

Milla's Avatar oh Devon, you're not STILL not driving! you can do it, honest.
Bath sounds doable. Westonbirt might be possible, too. South Molton am considering but think it is just too far! Have a great time.

Posted by: Milla on 7th Nov 2008 at 11:53AM

Exmoorjane's Avatar Nooooo......what happened to the test? Devon, how far are you from South Molton? If it's do-able I could pick you up!

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 7th Nov 2008 at 01:31PM

Toady's Avatar Or you could come in on the bus with me, Devon.

Posted by: Toady on 7th Nov 2008 at 02:09PM

Fennie's Avatar Bath would be a great place for a meet. I might even make it this time.
