The arrangements look to have changed:

New date: 11th May 2010
New time: 6pm
Venue: To be decided

Best advice would seem to be to keep an eye on the website......

It would be great to catch up but it clashes with a community group meeting I am supposed to be going to. Rats! Will see if there is anything I can do.

Try to come along Andy, afterall, who needs community. Wink

I believe you've met someone from my local transition group (South Ribble Towns). I was at a meeting this week and one person was talking about this guy he'd met at a talk in Accrington, and after a while I said "That sounds like Andy Hunt....!" Small world afterall. Very Happy

Ah yes, small world indeed!! He said he would invite me up to give the talk but I haven't heard from him yet.

I'm not going to be able to make tonight unfortunately - pretty gutted actually but I can't get out of my community meeting. I am one of the Trustees of the group, it's the environmental sub-group which is meeting tonight and one of the agenda items is community planters for growing food, which probably won't get pushed unless I am there to push it.

Hopefully we will manage to get together for a few beers in the sun this summer though!! Smile

About 25 there last night & some interesting opinions on what the new political landscape will mean - even though it was still evolving as we were drinking !

Next one planned for Tuesday 8th June:
Topic: 'A choice for transport : Electro-Disco or hydrogen highway'

Good to meet fellow PSers Eternal Sunshine & Andrew-l again.
Would be good to meet some more at the next one.....

Yes good to see Mark again and meet Andrew for the 1st time. Very Happy

I might be able to come to the next one, not sure tho as am working that day so it'll be a bit of a push getting over to Manchester in time. Confused
