We tried out a new venue when we met in Farnborough last week, and weren’t disappointed – free wifi, great coffee, plenty of sofas, close to the station & lots of parking! We’ll be back at the Village on Dec 3rd.
The crowd also continued to gather, and it was great to see some new faces, as well as some who haven’t made it in a while, alongside the regulars.
We enjoyed making the acquaintance of Andy Blair @thelastromantic and Lainey @thecrazybrit who came to check us out from UniversityofSurrey – we’re looking forward to seeing them again & finding out what’s happening in those quarters. It was also great to see Andy Piper @andypiper (Blog ) and Alan Wood @folknology after a busy break and find out what they’ve been up to. Visiting us for the first time were also Jo Jamieson @jojamieson and John Rutter @RutTheNut – welcome! Looking forward to catching up at a TVSMC in the near future!
Some familiar faces among us were Anne Marie McEwan @drmcewan, John Duffy @johnrduffy, Josie Pearson @phinessence, Jim Anning @JimAnning, Andrew Gerrard @andrewgerrard, Caalie @caalie and Benjamin Ellis @BenjaminEllis. It is good to see a core developing and we are thoroughly enjoying bouncing ideas around and picking each others brains!
TVSMC meets again next week at Chronicles Bar in Reading and will be back at the Village, Farnborough on Dec 3rd before taking a break for Christmas. Head over to the wiki for directions and to sign yourself up for either or both events, and to save the dates for the first 2010 meetings!
