If this is still the case please help us in planning for the event by registering at The conference will incorporate both presentations and talks about Wikipedia/Wikimedia, as well as Wikimedia UK's Annual General Meeting. It is free to attend. If you have any questions please contact Daria Cybulska on or 0207 065 0994. Hope to see you there! Richard Symonds (talk) 15:08, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Train the Trainers

I am pleased to announce that the Train the Trainers event which you have expressed interest in will take place on the weekend of 9-10 June at the Wikimedia UK office, 56 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4LT.

The timings of the training are roughly: Saturday 9:30 am - 6:30pm, Sunday 9am - 5pm. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided; we are also planning to go for a meal after the training on Sunday.

It is vital that you do not miss the start of the training session, so before confirming your availability please do make sure you can make the start time of the training.

We are able to cover travel and sccommodation, including if you need to travel on Friday - an advance notice will be appreciated!

Please reply promptly by emailing (or 0207 065 0994) and confirming your availability - places are limited.

If you are not able to attend this time, we will have another training in October, and you will be more than welcome to sign up then. Richard Symonds (talk) 15:17, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm not available on the 9th, and the 10th is a London meetup. Should we try and reschedule the meetup, and in future can we please try and avoid having rival WMUK events in London on the second Sunday of the month. In particular the October session should avoid the weekend of the 13th/14th. WereSpielChequers (talk) 17:41, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
This is a fair point - sadly it was the only weekend available in the schedule of the training organisation. For October I am looking at weekends closer to the end of October. Daria Cybulska (talk) 10:17, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
One of the advantages of them being a supplier is that they should be trying to accommodate us. My suggestion would be that in future we try and find out the dates that relevant volunteers are available rather than simply announce a date. WereSpielChequers (talk) 19:28, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Bold / Demos


Thank you for your comments about the proposed piece of work involving WMUK, Demos and Bold Creative. I've popped a reply on the proposal talk page. I hope this goes some way to helping show why this could be useful.

In the meantime, I'd be more than happy to speak with you to explain a little more about how I;d like to see this develop so please do feel free to give me a ring or perhaps advise of a time when I can call you. My work numbers are 020 7065 0993 and 07803 505 173. I'm back in the office on Monday. Thanks! --Stevie Benton (talk) 09:59, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
