Hi Andy, I didn’t know there was a Coventry branch!

Is there an email list I can join?
Maybe see you on Sept 8th

Sure! We have two different email lists - one for the Thursday morning sessions 10.30 fortnightly at Earlsdon Methodist Church but currently still on Zoom, and one for the Wednesday evening and Saturday morning meetings - would you like to join both?


would you like to give me your email address and I will add you, thanks


Hi Andy, I’m interested too - I’ve finished SSiW Level 2 but not practised for a year. COuld you add me to the email lists please?
Paul Davies, Nuneaton

sure! Look forward to meeting you. Might be short notice but our next meet-up is tomorrow morning!


Hi Andy

What time are we meeting tonight at the Litten Tree? Peter seemed to think it might be 6.30 not 7.30? And could I have a direct email address for you, or better still a phone number? Thanks,


Hi Paul, we’re starting at 7 tonight. That’s my mistake, we always used to start at 6.30 and I just forgot and started the last one at 7.30. But last week we decided on 7 as the start time although we can change it if it’s too early (or too late) for people.


Noswaith da pawb

Can you add me to the mailing list too please.

Hope to meet you all soon.


Done - our next meeting this month is this Saturday (18th) at Dobbies in Frankton, 10.30 a.m. which you are welcome to come to. Would you like to go on the mailing list for the Thursday morning meetings as well?

Just tagging @Deborah-SSi so this can be added to the weekly email.


Hi everyone, for one month only we have had to move December’s SSIW meeting at the Litten Tree from the second Wednesday to the third Wednesday, so it’s Wednesday 15th at 7pm not Wednesday 8th as it would usually be.


@Deborah-SSi - please could we edit this top post so that people don’t have to scroll down for the correct details or latest updates? I can provide the details if only admins can edit top posts.


I’m not sure if only Admins can edit posts. If you look at your post at the top, can you see a row of dots to the left of the Reply arrow with more options? If you can, do you get a pencil icon in there?

I’ve put the latest information there for you now, and I can keep doing that if you can’t find the Edit option.

Hi there

Could you add me to the email list? The Saturday meet sounds great -

Diolch yn fawr.

You’ll need to sign up to the email list via the link on the FAQ page SaySomethingin

@dave-lewis7 done!

@siaronjames I was inferring that this was a request to be added specifically to the Coventry mailing list, not to the general SSIW list :slight_smile: Hope I’m right in that :slight_smile:

@Deborah-SSi Hi @Deborah-SSi, I know we’ve had this conversation before but the dates on the top notice to this thread are now out of date. Is there any way I can edit them please? I’ve tried clicking on the pencil icon which usually means edit, but all I get is history! Thanks :slight_smile: -)

When it shows you History, do you see this at the bottom?

The ‘Edit Post’ looks disabled, but it works if I click on it. I’m not sure if that’s just because I’m Admin though.
