Well another meet up has passed, now in it’s seventh consecutive year! We have had a great couple of days with members from Newcastle, Edinburgh, Swindon and Liverpool joining us. For those who were unable to join us, here is what we got up to along with our next planned events.

We started the meet up with a walk up to the Berry Head VOR, the one you pass over when flying to Spain (Berry Head mate) There is a cafe up near the VOR serving a lovely breakfast. This was well needed after the brief ten minute walk due to the high winds and storm that hit the coast of the UK that morning. Unfortunately our umbrellas didn’t last the walk:

After this we headed into the centre of Paignton for the escape rooms. We split into two teams, with the first team heading off to escape while the second enjoyed a few drinks in the local Spoons, then we swapped over. The first team managed to escape with three seconds to spare! While the second had over ten minutes left when they escaped. As a reward the first team enjoyed a surprise meal of Mussy Peas, Garden Salad, Roasted Vegetables and Peas ordered via the weatherspoons app by the second team. Surprisingly they ate the lot !


The day ended with a lovely meal at Mike’s house along with a few games of table tennis and a controversial game of Cards against humanity! We took a group photo late that evening, some members missed the memo to “smile”  naming no names…

We have had an excellent few days at our meet up, a big thankyou to Mike Freeman for his hospitality and hosting, and we do hope all the members enjoyed joining us in Exeter this year. We already have two planned opportunities to meet up this year and next, further details will be released nearer the time but for now book the time off for the below :
