Wow, I wish I'd spotted this when we were in the planning stage, guys: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/get-inv ... e-weekend/

Sadly, Dunham Massey isn't in the list of National Trust sites that are free to visit this weekend :roll: (Tatton Park, just down the road, is - but it's way too late to change venue now!)

Wendy pointed out that I misread this (in my haste to get out for a friend's 40th) - Dunham Massey is free this weekend! Happy coincidence :D

Just in case you haven't read Catriona's attachment, you have to print off a voucher in order to get in free - it isn't just a case of turning up. You may also have to pay for parking, I'm not sure.

Looking forward to meeting you all tomorrow.

Hi

Have just seen the thing about the free weekend, but can't print out a voucher as our printer is broken. The voucher seems to apply to 2-4 people going in together though so hopefully will be ok. If anyone has a spare let me know! XXXXXXXXXXXX

See you tomorrow!

Hooray, I'm the first to post about it!
So we met up! There was me (40 minutes late - got lost), CBeebies, Catriona, Phil (lizzienphil), and Sarah D. A small but exceedingly select group. We had such a lot to talk about that we ran out of time, I think we could have stayed for the rest of the day and into the night. It all went very quickly. I can't find the right words to describe how good it was to meet everyone and to talk to people who really get what the whole MS/OMS thing is about. What struck me the most was how happy everyone was. There was far too much laughing going on.
I hope it's not just me, but I can't wait to meet up again. It's done me the world of good.
Thanks everyone,
Cinders xx
PS Phil's Mum and Dad joined us too. I am going to put myself up for adoption in the hope that they will take me on!
