  • Looking forward to the meeting and the reduced drive from Derbyshire (vs. my first meeting in Cardiff).

    Based on my experience of the Cardiff meeting it is time well spent. Lets get a good attendance so it demonstrates having 'Northern' meetings makes sense. (I was told, by a man that lives in Edinburgh that he lives in the South! :-)
