|SpeedDater - still no disabled access||by Julian Henley (Member 10119351) on 25-Jul-2004|
A number of months ago I posted a message regarding the UK's leading speed dating agency - SpeedDater Ltd (www.speddater.co.uk). The agency ran regular events in Brighton but there was no wheelchair-access to the venue. I am disabled and was therefore unable to attend.
Since this disappointing experience, I have been in contact with SpeedDater. After some persuasion, Brooke Ellingworth (Even
ts Manager, SpeedDater) promised to use a venue in the Brighton area which was accessible to disabled customers.... more >>
However, it appears that the disabled people in and around Brighton are being forced to wait. Seemingly, there are no venues under consideration. Indeed, there is little sign of a search for a venue by SpeedDater. In an attempt to find a suitable venue, I wrote to a number of establishments myself. Some of these expressed interest in having their premises used for SpeedDater events. SpeedDater, alas, were less enthusiastic.
I recently attended a presentation about the new amendments to the Disability Discrimination Act due to come into force in October 2004. The presenter spoke of "ostrich organisations" burying their heads in the sand and disassociating themselves with the Act. Could SpeedDater be positioning themselves in this category? I hope not. But, something is causing a lengthy delay. Could Brighton really be so backward in its provision for the disabled that it cannot yield a single wheelchair-access venue suitable for speed dating events? As I type this, I am aware that I am using technology capable of putting me in touch with every corner of the planet. How hard can it be?
This is a lonely campaign indeed. Please support me by contacting SpeedDater with details of any suitable venues. Contact:

|Speed Dating in Haywards Heath||by Julian Henley (Member 10119351) on 30-Jun-2004|
Speed Dater Ltd (UK's largest speed dating agency) report they are interested in using a venue in Haywards Heath, but they are concerned that there might not be enough demand for it in Haywards Heath.
I am disabled and therefore have not been able to attend speed dating events held at Brighton because Speed Dater's Brighton venue is not accessible to wheelchairs. However, I did manage to atten
d an event in London which was excellent! Speed Dater really know how to organise a great event, it's a great way to meet loads of people in one evening so I would urge anyone to give it a go.... more >>
Anyway, I recently set about trying to find a wheelchair-accessible venue in the Brighton area for Speed Dater to use, I wrote to dozens of night clubs, restaurants, pubs, hotels, wine bars, etc. I can assure you this is quite hard work for someone with cerebral palsy - even the act of folding a letter and getting it into an envelope can be a tough job sometimes. I therefore felt rather pleased with my efforts when I received an email from Speed Dater's Events Manager, Brooke Ellingworth, telling me that a possible venue had come up in Haywards Heath. However, Brooke also said that the venue may have to be dropped because he was concerned there might not be enough demand to make for a successful event.
I would hate all my hard work to be for nothing. More importantly, I would really like to attend speed dating events near my home town (Burgess Hill).
I would like to ask a big favour of you, the reader of this message board. If you have any interest in speed dating in Haywards Heath or know anyone who might, please contact Brooke Ellingworth (details below) and express your interest. I would sincerely appreciate your support, it could make all the difference for me and other disabled people in this area who find it difficult to meet people.
I very much hope you can help.
Many thanks for your help. Speed Dater can be contacted at:

|?????? "Bill" Norris||by Graham Norris (Member 10125345) on 29-May-2004|
I am trying to trace my natural father and compile a family tree to hand down to my children. Unfortunately my ancestry stops with me and I have no records of my ancestors.
My father was known as "Bill" Norris. (I don't know his first name). My mother was Marjorie Eleanor Payne (nee Perkins), and my half brother was Derek Anthony Payne. We all Lived at 1 Riddens Lane Plumpton Green Sussex
at least until the early 1950's. My half brother and I attended Plumpton Primary School in 1950. My mother, half brother and I moved away not long after this.... more >>
The only other infomation I have about my father, "Bill" Norris" is that he served in the RAF in WW2. His last place of employment that I know of was in Portslade Sussex, possibly at an electrical shop in the early to mid 1950's.
Any help I can get will be most appreciated.
|Can you help me?||by KD (Member 10088140) on 17-Mar-2004|
I am trying to find a Marine I met on 4th March 2004.
He is based in Belfast and was on the 16.30 flight from Belfast to London Luton on the 4th March.
I met him at Luton Parkway Airport and we both were on the 18.25 train heading to Sutton.
He was leaving the train at Kentish Town, I left at Mill Hill Broadway before him.
Unfortunately although we chatted the whole journey we never exchanged
names, which I regret now.... more >>
He did tell me a little about himself though, He is originally from Hastings and also has a brother in the Marines,
he has a brother in Epsom too. I know the information lacks but I do believe I can find him some way.
Can anyone help me???
|Speed Dater Ltd||by Julian Henley (Member 10119351) on 8-Mar-2004|
I am wheelchair-bound. Recently, I booked a place on a speed dating event organised by Speed Dater Ltd - www.speeddater.co.uk (Britain's leading speed dating agency based in London). The event was to be held in the downstairs bar of Al Duomo (an Italian restaurant in Brighton). However, the bar is inaccessible to wheelchairs. A quick look at Speed Dater Ltd's website indicates that (at the time
of posting this message) all forthcoming Brighton events are to be held in Al Duomo's downstairs bar, effectively barring disabled people. Surely an organisation of this size has the resources to find venues that are accessible to the disabled. It's hard enough for many disabled people to meet people and form relationships without this sort of unnecessary barrier being put up. I urge all disabled people interested in the exciting activity of speed dating (or anyone concerned about rights for the disabled) to get in touch with Speed Dater and enquire about their policy on disability. Perhaps together we can pursuade them to provide some wheelchair-friendly events in our area.... more >>

|Singles Party - 12 December, Hogshead, Burgess Hil||by Julian (Member 10019917) on 11-Dec-2001|
I am the founder of the Burgess Hill Young Singles Club. This is a new club for single people living within 20 miles of Burgess Hill. There are other singles clubs in the area but they are all aimed at older people and, to my knowledge, ours is the only club aimed at people under 30. Membership is free and I am eager to attract new members.
On Wednesday 12 December 2001 I will be hosting a S
ingles Party at The Hogshead pub (Church Road, Burgess Hill) for current members and anyone interested in joining. Anyone aged 18-30 who is unattached is very welcome to join the fun. There is no fee but guests will naturally have to buy their own drinks.... more >>
The fun starts at 8.00pm.
Guests are asked to "check-in" with me on irrival. I will be highly recognisable, at the bar in my electric wheelchair. However, if anyone is not sure who I am they may ask Adrian (the Manager of Hogshead) or another member of staff.
If this event is successful, further events will be held on a regular basis.
