#EastMidsMeetUp

Yes, another meet up... 




If you follow me on Twitter, you will have seen a few tweets about a Meet Up I am organising for East Midlands based Bloggers. Now, the reason for this is that I feel Midland Bloggers, especially East Midland based Bloggers, miss out on events due to people that don't actually live in the Midlands, travelling to attend them. I have no problem with that but if it means that we miss out on places at events because of it, then it's not fair. So, with this Meet up, there are requirements that you need to meet. 

You need to live in a 30 (35 pushing it) mile radius of Derby City Centre (this is where the Meet Up will take place). If you don't know whether that's you, I have popped a map/list below of all the places that would count:



 Buxton, Great Britain is 30 miles away

Below are the places just over 30 miles that will get 2nd priority over places:

 Albrighton, Great Britain is 40 miles away 
 Kenilworth, Great Britain is 40 miles away 
 Rugby, Great Britain is 40 miles away 
 Sandbach, Great Britain is 40 miles away

 Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Great Britain is 33 miles away 
Sheffield, Great Britain is 32 miles away 
 Walsall, Great Britain is 32 miles away


Overall, I think (to be confirmed) there will be 30 available places so priority will firstly go to those who live within the proximity, then to those who live over 30 miles and then to anyone else, providing there are spaces left of course. 

It will be a chance for local bloggers to meet up, shop, have a bite to eat and hopefully, learn some new things about companies in Derby! The day is 'under construction' at the moment but I have lots of ideas as to what to do. I am hoping it will be held on the weekend of 30th November/1st December so you could class it as a little Blogger Christmas Party! Timings again, are to be confirmed but i'm thinking about 12-7pm? including eating and shopping. 

If you are interested and would like to be involved, please email me with your postcode or area that you live so I can double check you meet the criteria and I will send you a confirmation email back! 

If you don't live in the designated area but would still like to come along, you can still email me and I will add you to a reserve list. This will be first come first serve so that if I have spaces left, the people that got in touch first will take priority over those spaces. 

If you have any questions, feel free to email me!
