Imagine it. It’s summer 2011 and a handful of dedicated souls are meeting for a drink. These few people represent the elite of the independent TW hyperlocal website scene. At the table are the editors of Teddington Town, St Margarets and Twickerati together with a couple of other locals with an interest in doing stuff online round these parts. They share a few ideas, trade experiences of what works and what doesn’t, and also dare to talk about other stuff. Whatevs, really.

Scroll forward six months and it’s time to expand the concept to an ever so slightly bigger handful of people. If you run a local site, have ideas about that kind of thing, fancy contributing content, like the idea of the whole hyperlocal community thing or simply want to engage in that most unsavoury of modern activities “networking”, then now is your chance.

It’s the TW hyperlocal social. Open invite and so informal that it’ll be like wearing flip flops to a funeral. Initial cast list as above but with a few more and now that you’ve read this, maybe even with your good self.

Thursday 19th January. From 8.30pm. The Royal Oak, Richmond Road, Twickenham. (opposite York House, no less!)
