In case you missed the e-mail sent from Wyn Morgan last week, the booking form for TELFest is now open.

Any ways we might get funding to attend this? It's a bit pricey.

Hello All

It was great to meet you all earlier in an informal setting.

We have collated your feedback from the session and placed it on on a Padlet board. Please feel free to add any additional info:

http://padlet.com/farzana_latif/yh0ns43n63vf

Based on this wall, I'll make some suggestions for the next meet, but overall everyone who attended seemed to think it was a good idea to keep these sessions in the diary, moving forward.
