Hi Everyone,

 

Thank you again to Mark for setting the wheels in motion, I think it is good that the setting up is moving at a steady pace, this gives us a chance to think and plan and work out what this group needs to be.

I think when we meet it should be in a neutral space so that there is no pressure on anyone to be somewhere they feel uncomfortable.

I wonder if we need to begin to think about how often we want the group to meet ie once a week, once a fortnight, once a month so that we can think about what kind of commitment we can make to the group.

I am also mindful that whilst I have been a single parent for twelve years and am happy to be honest and open about my situation, I realize that others may be just starting this journey I think we need to bear this in mind.

I am with Lou, I am happy to have a mixture of both. I think we need to get to know each other a little better first though i know myself how nervous and awkward it can be meeting new people.
