For what it's worth!  I used to live in Reading and would not have considered Wycombe too far toshare (contributeand benefit)   -
I started a Singles group on speck many years ago and have been happily married for over 30 years as a result - all things are possible!
Good luck, Martin

I agree, it makes sense that people in Reading might not see the point 
of a meet here. They are getting everything they need right there. No 
doubt they never consider where the gaps might be. However I've wanted a 
clear idea in my head of what exactly I'll be promoting the meet as and 
at least a few people confirmed as interested. If at all possible I'd 
like to avoid days where I'm the only one who shows up!

I've got a lot going on right now (child on the way this weekend!) so 
I'm thinking the first week of October.
