Subject: [ANNOUNCE][F] Nottingham Meet February 10th
Message-ID: <>


It has been a long time since there was a meet at the Victoria in
Beeston, Nottingham. 

The next one will be on Saturday February the 10th starting at
approximately 6pm.

How to get there:

Directions to The Victoria Inn, Beeston (as lifted from an earlier
announce by mpk)
By train:
Take the train to Beeston. Walk out of the front of the station, and
head towards the centre of Beeston. Turn left down the second
substantial street you get to, which is Grove Street. Turn left at the
end. You'll come across the Victoria fairly soonish -- basically, you
can't miss it. It's actually right next to the station, but there's no
gate from the platform straight into the pub yard, unfortunately.
By road:
I'm assuming you're coming from the M1. If not, you'll need to find
your own way to the west end of Nottingham and the A52 (otherwise
known as the Derby Road).  Leave the M1 at the A52 junction, which
IIRC is junction 25. It's signposted (IIRC, again *grin*) Nottingham
if you're coming from the North, and "Nottingham North" if you're
coming from the South.  Follow signs towards Nottingham, and keep
going over two roundabouts until you're on a wide, three-lane road
with a 40 limit and running through a built-up area, which becomes the
Derby Road. After about a mile, you'll see a turning off to the right
signposted for Beeston -- the B6006, Wollaton Road. There's a filter
lane, and a filter arrow on the lights. (If you get to a big
roundabout next to the "Priory" restaurant, and with shops on the
left, you've gone too far -- spin round the roundabout, then the
Wollaton Road will be approx. the third on the left). Follow this road
around and keep going -- you'll pass through the centre of Beeston (a
pair of pedestrian crossings with pedestrian precincts on both sides)
and pass the fire station and the multi-storey on the right. Keep
going. When you get to a major crossroads with the Queens Road and
traffic lights (these are, I think, the *second* set of lights after
the centre), keep straight on towards the station, then turn first
right. If you go over the flyover, you've gone too far! Follow the
road and turn left at the next T-junction, and you'll see the Victoria
in front of you. Park where you can...

>>From Jen:

If you go to you can get a map centred on it,
the postcode is NG9 1JG.

What to expect:

Drinking of various and multiple beers and whiskies, good food and a
cosy atmosphere. Perhaps even chocolate coated things and/or cuddly

What to bring:

Whatever seems a good idea at the time.

Crash space:

Is very limited and on a first-come-first-served basis and consists atm
solely of floor space.

Other information, misc. queries, people wanting homes for lonely
bundles of ten pound notes:
