A common question that gets asked - is there any meetup happening near X?
Often it’s followed a little later by - this meetup that happens in X, does it still happen?
In Newport and the surrounding area there are a load of regular meetups, at least 1 a day it seems. Meetups organised by ssi learners, coleg gwent, menter iaith, or meetups that have been going on for so long that everyone’s forgotten how they started.
What I’d like to see is a single list of them all, and to be able to show up to a meeting with a reasonable degree of confidence that the meetup didn’t finish 18 months ago only no one remembered to update the internet.
It’s a list of most meetups in Newport and surrounding area (rather vaguely termed the “south-east”). There’s also a calendar so it’s possible to see what’s coming up in the next month, week or day.
That’s about it at the moment.
It’s only as good as the data it contains - so if you’re in the area and know of something I’ve missed, please let me know. Even more importantly - if there’s a mistake, or a meeting has been cancelled or moved or awarded grant money for beer by the government - please let me know.
As the site becomes a little more mature - and if the demand is there! - the plan is to find some volunteers to curate the list of meetups, and open it up to cover a wider area.
