An ideal opportunity to float a new idea or maybe discuss how to improve existing ideas. But mainly this is a social occasion to meet friends and hopefully make new ones.

The next Monthly Meeting will be held on Thursday 28th March 2019 and will be a talk on "What is Fake News; Why is it a Problem and How to Avoid Being Taken In" By Darren Lilleker
Fake news may have been 'popularised' by Donald Trump to denounce negative coverage of him, but it is a widespread issue which has the potential to undermine core principles of democratic life. This talk will define fake news and demonstrate why it is one of the key concerns for the 21st century information environment.
