    Thank you for this info. Will try and get down to open mic session in Chingford as I live down the road and I’m not working on Friday.

    Love love Southend and only visited once this year for sun, sea and fish and chips. If I had my way and I was a bit more confident behind the wheel I would have visited every Friday just to see the glee in my girls eyes at the water park.

    It was easy getting my daughter ready for school but trying to get her to eat breakfast almost finished me because it was far too early.

    Thanks for the friendly reply sherima.

    I did notice that the dates are a bit soon for my friends singing gigs but its nice for her that there spread over a distance.

    You should definitely pop along to Southend. The last post public house is close to the train station and theres no obligation to stay.

    Ill send you a friend request over and keep you up to date with stuff going on. Hopefully they’ll be more next summer but with Halloween and the big C sneaking upon us I’m sure meet ups will be happening in a few places.

    If your particularly intrested my frinds name is Lizzie Bing. Shes a brilliant singer and also supports the mental health charity Rethink.

    Keep well

    Before I had my daughter I use go to King’s x to open mic  2 support my niece who wrote her own material and played the guitar. She started to get bullied at secondary school when the say her on utube from jealous school friends  who told her she was a terrible singer and ugly. So that was the end of that. She starts university soon so do hope that gets her confidence back and goes back to writing and singing again.

    Hopefully the nanny is available on Thursday

    Also I’m hosting a Gingerbread Brunch at The Last Post in Southend on the 17th September between 10am and 2pm. If your free come along and just ask for the Gingerbread table.

    I came along and asked the bar staff for the Gingerbread table and nobody knew what I was talking about! They said there were no bookings in any name, neither Gingerbread nor Liane.

    So that was an hour and a half of the morning wasted 🙁

    I also walked around and asked at several tables if there was a Liane there.

    Suggestion: The next time you organise an event, especially if it’s in a large establishment like this, perhaps you could share your mobile number by PM with those who’ve signed up or specify in advance where the group will be sitting.

    Im now looking for a secretary and treasurer to help me organise Basildon SPG and sort out venues etc.

    If your intrested inbox me.

    Sorry for last week.

    Hi Liane, I can’t take on those responsibilities at present, but perhaps at a later date.

    In the meanwhile, best of luck and please keep us posted on progress.
