NW meet up

Following on from the previous posts about a meet up, when allowed, for anyone in the North West. I think it’s probably most central to choose Manchester but if everyone adds where they are from we can ascertain most suitable area. I don’t know a suitable place as I’m not local so all ideas could be discussed on this conversation.
I’m from Blackpool, widowed in November and the heartbreak is as fresh as all those weeks ago. I’d love to talk to like minded people going through the same emotions and hopefully find support and strength from others

Thankyou for starting this new posting, I am from Preston, yes I think to talk with others who are going through this pain will help each and everyone of us, I also lost my wonderful wife in November, trying everything to carry on, we all know how hard that is.


Hi, I’m in the North West (Manchester). I’m here as I’ve lost both parents, not a spouse. But still would like to take part in meet ups as I feel extremely alone with grief. I don’t have anyone who understands. My sister doesn’t speak about our parents passing, so I literally have no one.

It really will help to talk and have support from those going through the same. Regardless whether you have lost a parent, spouse, child, brother, auntie grief remains the same. I hope reading or responding on here will help the process for you

Thank you both :heart:

I would be interested in this, I’m in Greater Manchester.


If it’s in Manchester or Liverpool there is a chance I’ll come. Warrington would be most likely for me. I also live in Gtr Manchester.


This is why we need to start now, we live in different parts of the north west, the meeting place can move so it is accessible to all but not all needs to come at every get together, does that make sense?

Hello everyone. It’s a beautiful sunny day, to some it’s uplifting, to others, less so. This topic and Kazzer’s topic, ‘Just and idea’, is proving just as uplifting as a beautiful sunny day. At the moment all members are adhering to Priscilla’s guidelines posted June 2020 https://community.sueryder.org/pub/terms-conditions#public-community, to anyone thinking of posting, please take a minute beforehand to read these notes on how to post safely online.
Take care all,

Hi everyone, just to add to Audrey’s comment, I wanted to share my response that I posed in the Just an idea thread.

I’ve noticed a few comments mentioning where you live and as a public forum, anyone could see this information and possibly identify you. To help you stay safe online it might be best to disclose these details privately to each other over PMs. This then gives you a bit more safety that your information about where you live is only being shared with the person you would like.

You may also like to have a quick read of our terms and conditions which also has a few tips about online safety such as this one below:

Think about your safety if you ever arrange to meet people you have met on any online community and if you are doing this, always tell someone else about your plans.

If you have any questions or feel unsure about anything, you can reach out to me via email at online.community@suerydercare.org.
