The main aim of this second meeting is hear from Friends of the Earth and The DoNation about projects/tasks that we could help them with. We'll also be discussing some 10:10 and Freegle tasks we can work on and how it's been going with the group of people who signed up to do some work between the first and second meeting.

    Just noticed on the video I'm editing of last night that I forgot to thank Wendy and Duncan for coming and talking to us. So, belated thanks for a great talk, and let's hope my manners (and microphone technique) have improved for next time!
