Jo  of  north  Craven  networking  wrote:  Many  local  people are now
blogging  on  a  wide  range  of  topics.   I would like to start this
informal  group  for  sharing  of  ideas, mutual support and technical
help.   No  commitment to come every time just a chance to meet up and
help support and encourage each other.

It really doesn’t matter if you are new to blogging or have been doing
it for a while. All are welcome.

We  will  meet at the Royal Oak between 5 and 7pm on the first Tuesday
of  each  month. They will provide copious amounts  of veggie soup and
hot  drinks  so no charge for the group itself but £5 for food payable
on the day.

Please book if you intend to come so we know numbers and can make sure
there is enough soup and coffee!
