It’s Time… For Another Twickenham Hyperlocal Meet Up Thingy

Twickenham Ice Cream Van in B&WThursday 14th November 2013. Remember the date. 8.30pm. Remember the time. As to the place? Well, you’ll have to keep reading to find that out. The occasion? The third not-quite-annual Twickenham hyperlocal meet-up. The aim? To bring local tweeters, bloggers, scribblers, web types, business types, none-of-your-business types, interested in all things local people, members of the great Twickenham public and, most importantly of all, anyone who doesn’t easily fit into any of those categories, together for a social catch up. Call it a Twickenham meet up, if you like. Call it a “tweet up” if you must. It’s a very informal evening designed to get people talking Twickenham to each other, swapping ideas, making new social contacts, and maybe even making new business contacts. Whatever. There is no agenda. There will be no speeches. The creeping death of “round the group” introductions is banned.

The first twickerati meet up took place in January 2012. About 20 people attended. The second took place in January 2013 with about 45 of Twickenham’s finest. It featured a right old mix, all of whom were very interesting and most excellent company. And as for the third? Well, that’s up to you but you’ll definitely fit right in. You just need to ask yourself when the time comes years from now and someone says to you, “So, did you go to the great Twickenham tweet up in November 2013?” will you be able to hold your head up high and say, “Yes, child, I was there that night. I was part of it”.

Don’t be shy. Your town needs you. Or at least your local pub does.

One last thing… if you run a local website, blog or whatever then it would be good if you could wear some kind of ID so that people can hunt you down and also confirm that you’ll be there (either with a comment below or by email) so we can stick up a list. You never know, some people might actually want to speak to you!

Details:
Date: Thursday 14th November 2013
Time: From 8.30pm
Location: Ales & Tails Bar, York Street, Twickenham

    The last one was a really good evening. Met some some interesting people and the pub even provided a few snacks I seem to recall. See you on 14th.

  4. ‘ . . This day is called the feast of Crispian:
    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
    Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
    And rouse him at the name of Crispian.

    He that shall live this day, and see old age,
    Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
    And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian:’
    Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.

    And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispin’s day.’
    Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
    But he’ll remember with advantages
    What feats he did that day: then shall our names
    Familiar in his mouth as household words
    . . Be in their flowing cups freshly remember’d.

    This story shall the good man teach his son;
    And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
    From this day to the ending of the world,
    But we in it shall be remember’d;
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers . . ‘
