Are you a member of the RWA?? :thumb:

Do you live in Bristol or surrounding or can travel to Bristol?? :wave:

Would you like to meet up with like minded bunny people ?? :lol:;)

Maybe help fundraiser for local rabbit charities?? :thumb:
Then join the Bristol RWA hopper group! This is a new hopper group, we are looking for bunny crazed people to join ;)

Are you interested? (Please say you are!) then reply to the thread (keeps it's bumped too ;)) and I can send you a link to join. When we have more people on board we can start meeting and planning.......we are looking forward to meeting you ......it will be bunderful (see what I did there!) :thumb:

Also if you still have the winter 13 hop it magazine there is an article in there about hopper groups that are already up and running :love:

Can't justify spending money on an RWAF membership unfortunately.

Shame that hopper groups are limited to RWAF members, kind of creates a 'we're better than you' situation that could make people feel left out...

I'd love to meet up with like minded people, chat about stuff etc... but i'm not allowed, because I don't have the money for an RWAF membership...

Then contact the RWA .:wave:....I'm trying to set up a new group, I've been given this daunting task!

The RWA don't money make ......it all goes towards rabbit welfare :wave:

Yep! Just down the Birmingham road, I reckon 20mins :p I've been to Solihull once before to go to Touchwood, I couldn't stop giggling at the name :oops: I told a friend who'd grown up in Solihull and he said he'd not even thought of the slightly rude connotation, even when it was being built and first named, I think I was having a dirty mind day! :lol:

Tsk! Shame on you :lol:

I go to Touchwood loads. I live near Birmingham airport so it's not far from me and my OH's parents live in Coventry so I go there too.

I'd have joined if Bristol was nearer :D

The way I see it, you pay mainly for Rabbiting On, which is a fab magazine. I don't think 20 is much anyway :wave:

I'm not sure I'll have time for fundraising, but I'd like to join the group.

This thread might get more interest if it was in Rabbit Chat. I don't usually login so I don't read General Chat.

Your welcome to join regardless :wave:

On our first meeting we can discuss what we all want the group to be :thumb: it may be that no one wants to fundraiser.......which is fine :wave:

Excellent!

It's just a group of bunny crazed like minded peeps meeting every now again for chat/shared advice/cakes (yum!) and maybe to plan fundraising for local bunny charities?

On the first meeting we can all say what we expect and want from the hopper group :thumb:

I was thinking if anyone wants more information on hopper groups and what they are then I can photocopy the article that was in hop it magazine (which is where I originally heard about it :thumb:) and post it to you :wave:

Just PM me and let me have your address and I'll get right on it :D

How about just meeting up with other bunny lovers near you and having a picnic on the beach near you? Joshua would love it....I know I would.

I'm looking for somewhere to go for my holiday later on in the year......I could B and B near you and combine my holiday with meeting other bunny lovers. Perfect!!!:thumb:


Willowsmum, I'm a RWA member and have been since 2002. I'd love to go to a Hopper meeting near you, but just don't have the time or finances right now.:(

Best of luck with your meetings.:thumb:

Definitely come down here Mrs B! It's a beautiful part of the country, and lots of beaches :D

Tempting.......I'll have a think. Quite happy to stop in a B @ B, pub accommodation or guest house. Criteria required.....warm, comfy, good food, log fire(s) as my holiday will probably be later on in the year, real ale, wonderful scenery and ......most important good, friendly people.

I live close to bath and Bristol isn't too far away by train. It would be nice to meet some more people (I moved here last year) and I love talking about rabbits.

Would need to wait till payday on 18th to join though. Can you tell me what I would need to do too please?

There are plenty of places around here to fit that criteria :)

Or you could stay with us (we'll be in the house) and still have your bunny cuddles :)

Even more tempting.:D As you know, things rather ......odd for me at the moment, but perhaps by having something enjoyable to focus on in the future could help me cope with the here and now.

Bless your kind heart. xxxx

Mrs B, what can I say :cry: I don't come on here much now (for various reasons) but I've just had a quick catch up with your situation :cry: I'm so sorry this is happening to you, I can't imagine what your going through :( it must be hell, I hope your furries are continuing to be a source of support :thumb:

I would LOVE it if you could come to our hopper meets however I completely understand, maybe in the future??? Meantime maybe we could arrange another bunny meet in your part of the world :wave: I very much enjoyed our cake filled meet last time :lol: met some wonderful people :thumb:

But I understand your life is being taken up with lots at the mo.......for now hugs from me and binkies form willow and the girls (hmmm, they sound like a band!:lol::lol:) xx
