    @Type1Bri Thanks for that, its booked in on the calendar now for 26th Nov!

    @Shar67 Bluewater would be a great idea nice and central for Kent. Probably best to start in Jan to avoid the christmas sales.

    This forum is fine, don't need to go smaller, go big or go home.
    3 people already onboard, I know a couple of others that may be interested.

    I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else to arrange this. The forum is where the T1D London ones began last year

    Why? Just because your group started here, doesn't mean there aren't other ways to include. London is easier to set up. By joining meet up you can aim for people in Kent and indeed London.

    Fully agree there are many other ways to promote the meetups. Social media is a very powerful tool when used well, @Dan6

    London is fine but there is life outside of it. We could be like the scouts, groups all around then a London jamboree, hosted by the London group

    That would be pretty cool and it gives everyone the chance to network in person with other diabetics
