    You might want to double check that date. It's when the Talking About Diabetes sessions are taking place - not sure how many will make it.http://diabetestimes.co.uk/event/talking-about-diabetes/#sthash.77GaPNjh.dpbs

    I think there are around 200 people going...

    I am a tad disappointed..I know March is complicated by Easter but I think keeping the date as the last Saturday of the month is a good idea.
    Planned for the 19th which had been adjusted for Easter. Sorry just a moan

    All valid points, just really difficult finding a date to suit everybody. I know Ewelina puts a lot of effort into organising these meets, so please try and keep negativity to a minimum people.
    Keep an eye on the main forum for official postings

    I have never been to one of these events before so will be going to this one as someone who is a forum member will be speaking about living with diabetes and should be good to find out a bit more about xDrip and NightScout

    Is it definitely the 12th now or is it still likely to change?

    As far as I know it is definatly the 12th, best to check with @ewelina though as she organises the meet ups. I am sure the official post will be up soon

    Im really sorry you cant make it this time Mike. I apologise as it was said 19th at the start. I think I learnt my lesson as an organiser now (still new to the role! ) and do not post anything before its confirmed

    I am unfortunately unable to get to Ewelina's meetings as i am out of London, but i am sometimes in London Hospitals, not just for diabetes, as i imagine a number of Type ones are. In addition to your ideas above, had you thought of casual meet ups with anyone who happens to have appointments in the same hospital, on the same day ? This may only work for people who have set aside the day or who are retired/not in work, but it has worked for me.

    HI. I have been a Forum member for some time and I was wondering whether I just turn up or do I need to register?
