Im going to make a monthly meetup so we can have some regular contact that you can plan into your schedule.
In the very first on the Monthly Meetups, lets meet at the Millennium Done at North Greenwich. There is a walk along the Thames that goes past some industrial sites, Yacht Club, Thames Barrier and has views of Canary Wharf and some other amazing photo opportunities.
We can finish at Woolwich Arsenal and take DLR or mainline train home. At a brisk walk it takes an hour so I would imagine 2 to 3 hours will be plenty but its easy to dash off and find a bus or train if you need to get going.
This should give some of you who already know each other some time to catch up and the rest of us some time to get to know each other. We can also discuss what everyone would like to get out of this Meetup Group.
