Hi Maz, Are there any forums planned for Edinburgh in 2013?


Hi Aime, not sure at the moment, I am waiting to hear, hopefully we will be holding one either in Edinburgh or perhaps Glasgow. I will put details on website and on here as well, and will send an email as soon as I hear anything. Maz


Gutted would love to go to Newcastle forum but have used my annual leave now and next years allowance doesn't start until 1st April.

Do you know if there will be any others in the north this year?


Hi Foss33, sorry but so far these are the only venues that have been confirmed at the moment. Maz


Great wil be attending the forum in Cambridge.


I hope to attend Newcastle as my first forum.


I would also be interested in a forum or similar north of the border - could possibly help host something in Glasgow even....




I wonder why there are never any forums in Hull or at least Leeds? Newcastle is very far to get to from where I live - even Manchester would be acceptable! Cambridge is also a long way for us who live in the North East. I would really love to attend a forum - somewhere accessible.




Hi Dorotea, we are working on organizing forums in the areas that you mention, as well as trying to hold one in the west country, as soon as we have details I will let everyone know. Maz.
