Hi @llanddinol - just checking, are you the contact person for this meetup now? I have it in the weekly newsletter already but I have @nic as the contact person.

I’ll pop this in this week’s newsletter for you. If you could tag me with @dee when you hear of any other events in your area I’ll get alerted about them, so that would be great. Diolch!
