Throw Back Thursday on the Forum! Please join us
« on: May 25, 2016, 04:38:50 PM »
Remember the good old days on the forum? The thread hijacking and the long nightshifts when you knew you had to log off, when you really should log off but it was just too much fun to go to bed!

Since Facebook came along things have been quieter....BUT Facebook is very one way and doesn't allow the conversations that the forum does (or anonymity where needed)

New SWKers have never experienced the fun of the forum and are hesitant to post. That's why we're recruiting old posters.  Join us on Thursday 26th May from 6.30pm onwards!

We're looking for experienced forum fanatics and we'd like to invite you back to catch up with old friends, read old posts, update us on how things have moved on for you, share your stories for the newly single parents (remember how it felt back then?) For the most entertaining or helpful post of the evening we're offering a £20 Amazon Voucher. That's £20 of goodies just for chatting and taking a trip down memory lane.

We know that many of you have moved on, there are engagements, weddings, house moves and even babies... many of the old crew have also changed email addresses as new chapters open so we can't contact them. Please spread the word to let them know they are welcome to join in.

We look forward to seeing you here  :)

....and yet I bet you can't remember where your phone or keys are even though you just put them down 10 minutes ago?  :)

IF anyone can't remember a password, think what password you would choose if you were setting it up now and you may find that works. If not, drop us a message at events@singlewithkids.co.uk or on FB and we'll find you and reset the password for you.

Really looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to :-)
