Good morning! I hope you are all feeling good today😊
Just wondering how many of us are going to the Newcastle forum next Friday?
I will be there with my hubby.
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
I'll be there! Looking forward to meeting other MPN'rs from the local community. As it's a rare condition I've never been sure how many of us there are around here. I live in North Shields. Thanks for getting in touch and look forward to meeting you on Friday.
Hi sandy, I live just down the road from you in Northumberland park!
What a small world! I look forward to meeting you on Friday. Sandra
Hi there, I had hoped to meet you at the Forum but I wasn't sure who you were! As we live so close to each other it would be great if we could meet up for a coffee sometime. Look forward to hearing from you. Sandra

I'll be at the forum on Fri hope to have a chat with you cheers Ivy
I will be there most likely with my hubby, I'm travelling from just outside Bristol, hence I will have to stay over..
Any idea of the Venue, I would love to know to book hotel nearby..
Can't find any information on venue as yet..😊
The venue is at The Centre for Life which is very near The Central Station (railway station) and Metro. The County Hotel is opposite the station. I think there is also a hotel at the station. Others nearby are Hotel Indigo, Hampton by Hilton and The Vermont. My husband and I are going - it’s very helpful to meet others affected by an MPN and hear useful information from the experts.
Crowne Plaza and Jury’s Inn are near The Centre for Life too.
That makes it so much easier I'm very grateful for all the information provided..
Joe sounds mad possibly, but cheaper for us to fly up from Bristol area than by the train..
You seem very knowledgeable of the area, would you know how far out of city and venue I will be if I stayed close to Airport or in city , whichever is easier as I may be alone as hubby is a little unwell at present 🤞he will be with me..
But I'm not missing this for anything if possible...😊
The airport is seven miles from the city centre. You can get the metro from the airport- it takes 25 minutes to the city centre. Hope your journey goes well and your hubby can make it.
Thanks so much, I will either book Jurys or another close by, name has gone for minute HU Fog...
Yes I'm hoping Ken will be ok, but it's not like going overseas...
50 min flight, Metro into City, stop near Jurys....😊
Hi. Lots of hotels nearby. Closest probably Jury’s Inn but depending on budget there is County Hotel (where I used to be sales manager 🤣), Sleepers, Hotel Indigo, Copthorne Hotel (where I was also sales manager years ago) . Hope you get sorted 😊
Thanks v much
Looking at Jurys & County older looking Building but nice ?
If hubby with me great, but if alone I want to be near Venue and nice hotel with English Brealfast especially if Ken is with me🤞
Congratulations on the Sapphire Anniversary lovely picture, it's mine in 3 years and I love Sapphires!
Oooh me too Mary. Wearing my sapphire ring with pride 😊
Hi All, I am also going to the forum, a friend of mine is coming with me. Looking forward to the talks and meeting others near by. If you see me please say hello 😉
I'm new to this too Diagnosed just prior to you in May MF/ET...
I'm sure it will be good opportunity for all of us, nobody really understands this unless they have it....
See you there 😊
im really looking forward to meeting everyone next Friday and listening to the talks, my mum and sister have asked to come along as they’re keen to know more too, which is great, I’m sure we’ll all get a lot from it and make new friends, strengthen our support network x
Where is the forum and what time please ?
I will be sending out an email later today to everyone who has booked to attend the forum, just to remind you of venue and start times. Maz
I am from Blyth Northumberland diagnosed ET JAK2 + in June. I would of went to the forum but i have other arrangements made. Hope everyone enjoys it.
Sorry I’m not going, it would have been lovely to meet you all. I can’t get time off work and I live in Newcastle too.
Thats a shame Wendy. Where do you live in Newcastle?
I live in Denton Burn. X
