Whoopee. Been waiting to join a gingerbread group for years. Well done guys. Looking forward to making new friends for myself and my two boys aged 7 & 4. Where from Weston Super Mare. If anyone fancies meeting up before hand give me a shout. Hope you had a good holiday Mark.
Thanks Seaside, it was an interesting break, I’ve been a few times, the area around Draculas castle is stunning, unfortunately I didn’t leave Bucharest this time as I was visiting my ex’s family but it was good to see some of the people again and I do love the food although I think I might need to go on a diet now.
I’ve applied to gingerbread to start a group, I had an email with various forms, one of them is about a CRB check. I have an advanced one due to work and have paid extra to enable any organisation to access it from the government website, all I need to do is give someone a code and they can access my CRB.
There is no option for me to do this in the forms. I’ve tried phoning gingerbread to find out how to resolve this but I’m met with never-ending telephone options, each one ending in a request to leave a message, which I’ve done. I’ve met some of gingerbread staff so I know they actually excist, I’m just having issues with talking to a real person.
I’m a bit disappointed as I know you all want to join a group but I need to set one up in the right way with the right support but that doesn’t seem to be forthcoming.
I will try again on Monday to get through to someone. I just didn’t want you all to feel I’m not doing anything. I’m on the case.
I’ve tried setting up a group online which I found a real nightmare, it might be me as I’m not that into computer stuff. So I’ve gone traditional and sent everything off this morning via snail mail. Updates will follow.
