Today’s meet-up, and date for the next one

I really enjoyed our meetup today, even though the attendees were somewhat depleted in number – I suspect they had (quite understandably) been put off by the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere! But on the bright side, we had lots of time to chat, drink tea and eat cake (we had carrot cake and lemon cake), which is clearly a key aspect of any social meet-up!

Also of course we discussed the SEV licence reapplications. Val, who couldn’t make today’s meeting, had done loads of research and drafted a fantastic letter giving her grounds for objecting to the King’s Club licence, and today we added some thoughts of our own. We’ve still got a bit more work to do on the letter itself but we will definitely get it to the council by the deadline on Thursday! We’d encourage individuals and other organisations to send their own objections as well.

We did feel a bit bad about meeting not actually in Harrogate, especially for those among us who don’t drive. But we thought the Sunday meetup was nice – it felt a bit more relaxed than an evening meetup as we didn’t feel so strung out from work, getting the kids to bed, etc. So next time we’re going to go for a weekend daytime, child-friendly meetup again, but this time in the town centre!

So, a date for your diary: Sunday, 26th February, from 10am, at Victus in Harrogate (they serve American pancakes until 11am – yum!). Children welcome.
