    Hi everyone,

    Since there seems to a interest in a potential social meet up, I happen to know that my local church hall and attached cafe are available for hire so I could potentially organise something for there. The hall itself is your typical small/mid-sized church but as there are no pews in it, it makes for a relatively good sized space to set up and the cafe itself is pretty good as well.

    However, I don't know how much interest there would be in the North Wales/Merseyside/Chester area (it is at the top of the M53) so before I make a enquiry, is anyone willing to come along to something like this with a preferred time? It'll likely be in February/March time. In the meantime, I'll see if I can get some measurements/photos of the space.

    Cool, I'll see about booking the cafe for early March time (3rd of March - 1st Saturday) for around 18:00ish time for a couple of hours. I'll update this thread if we are able to go ahead - should know by the end of the week hopefully.

    That is OK, we all have to start somewhere!

    I've not heard back from the people who run the cafe yet, I'll pop in either today or tomorrow and see what is going on.

    So an update - I went to the cafe today to see what was going on and apparently they didn't receive my inquiry so I made the booking there and then. However, perhaps a little unsurprisingly, they needed a bit of clarification as to what I meant by "robotics meet" and there was a serious question about damaging the floor, which I wasn't expecting.

    They said they'll phone me on Monday to give me their verdict.

    No update yet folks, looks like I'll have to go back there and see what is going on.
