     No download needed Liane, that is optional for people with an android phone, you can just click on the chat link and go straight in.

    Hi Liane

    I think most of us are flitting between GB and nighthawks café

    Lovely to meet you

    I tried the link for the chat room and got a message saying it’s been closed down? Is that true was really hoping for a chat room, would anyone consider a fb or WhatsApp group chat? Or is that to personal?

    My decision to close down the chatroom was based on a safeguarding standpoint among other things after discussion with the Gingerbread moderators.  The chatroom was unaffiliated with Gingerbread and therefore not sufficiently moderated to be able to give help to those who needed it.

    From a duty of care perspective it was decided that the best course of action was to help Gingerbread develop their own site to include features such as this in a safe and moderated environment and there are many exciting ideas that are in development and should address some of the points you mentioned above.

    For further information or to pass on any ideas or feedback please contact Justine the moderator.

    I would strongly dissuade you from creating a WhatsApp group from a safeguarding perspective with those you don’t know due to the way it shares its data with Facebook.

    The most practical way that could be endorsed from this site would be to look for a local Gingerbread group or ask for assistance in creating your own and there are resources available for this on the website.

    Hope the site brings what you need soon.

    I have to say I agree with everything Welshdad has said. Gingerbread is the best and safest social platform that we all need right now.

    I’m sure with his superb computing skills, his contribution towards helping the future development of GB will be very helpful.

    Facebook and whatsapp are not good and I rarely use them 🙂

    Evening all

    I think this is the right thing to do – hopefully we can get a GB chat room set up soon, and I know Justine is doing some great things behind the scenes. A big shout out to Welsh Dad as well for his work!

    Not been on here for a while – life is good, and I think it’s worth saying that life does get better – if someone had said to me 6 months ago that I would feel like this today, I would have laughed at them!

    I too have rarely been on here the last few months. Just wasn’t doing me any favours. 😀

    Hi Sue

    How’s the writing coming on? Been writing a few poems myself recently, not done it for a long time but when you find the right inspiration, away you go!
