    Hi guys,
    I joined this group a few days ago and I read your posts almost everyday.
    It's good to be informed and learn from different experiences.
    I was wondering if ...
    Are there any general meetings organised ?
    Do you meet locally ?
    It would be nice to meet in person and share our experiences. I think that proximity will give to the ones that we are still struggling with the learning , a bit of hope, warmth , support ....
    I'm a T1D and I live in Maidenhead and I don't mind traveling a reasonable distance : Berkshire , London, surroundings.

    What are your thoughts ?

    Welcome to the forum @ppcascos
    I know there are plans for a meetup in Manchester. @himtoo organised the last one and I think he is planning the next.

    I am not aware of any others around our ex-prime minister's home :)

    Your "Scotland" tag confuses me a little.

    hi there @ppcascos
    I know there is a type 1 diabetic meet up group in London -- they have a website and a facebook page
    type 1 diabetic meetups london

    there is also a type 1 group that meet in brighton -- they advertise their meets via Instagram
    see organisingchaos ,ceri-annhackling for IG details

    Diabetes UK have support meetings throughout the country but best to check to see if Berkshire has a Diabetes UK branch -- google search best bet


    hope this helps
