    I know this is going to sound like a silly question, but where is it best to submit a post for an event? I have posted two events in the last week in my local loop, has anybody seen them? Or would it only be those in that local loop who sees them? If the post pertains to my general area, have I got to post it in several local loops? Where is it best to post an event happening in London, for another instance?

    September Dinner Date Thursday 16th September 2021 7pm Okay, I’ve given in and booked places for a Chinese meal at - The Welcome Inn in Hornchurch. I’m sure you all know where this is already, but here is the address anyway - 49, High Street Hornchurch, RM11 1TP. The restaurant doesn’t seem to have it’s own website, so I can’t post a menu. They do takeaways and you can find a menu online, but I’m not sure how up to date they are. All these buses go through Hornchurch – 165, 193, 256, 248, 256 and 372. So, does anybody fancy this? xx

    Is everybody aware of the recyling at the Co-op new (selected stores)? They are collecting all those pesky pieces of plastic that couldn't be put in the general recyling bags collected by the council. We only have a small Co-op where we live, but they do have a collecting bin. This is from the Co-op website - https://www.coop.co.uk/environment/soft-plastics/packaging-list

    August Dinner Date Wednesday 18th August, 2021 As requested I have provisionally booked places at Braza, Brazilian Bar & Grill, for 7pm. We have been there before, so you may remember where it is. The address is 1a Arcade Place in Romford, which is very near the snooker hall on one of the pedestrian approaches to the Brewery Car Park. The menu is here - https://brazalondon.com/our-menu/ Please note that there is a set price which will be £22.99. I did ask about a group booking but was told that a discount was only available to the NHS. Incase anybody is unaware, there is quite a selection of meats and hot dishes to try. I am starting my list now. Feel free to ask any questions.
