Sunday Meetup: Cancelled :(

Apologies but I have had to cancel this month's meetup. I am travelling back up north for a few days to look after my grandma who has become ill. Apologies because I was looking forward to seeing everyone again and getting to know all the new members, as I guess you were too.
However, on the plus side, I have been in talks with Rich Mix who are very keen for us to hold more meetups there. They are also interested to hold a 'before/after' photo exhibition to showcase the work from the group.
I think it's great to have the Rich Mix as a 'hub' because not only are they in vibrant East End and a stone's throw from Brick Lane & the Sunday Markets, they are also very social enterprise driven and keen to get involved with local events and allow people to access creativity as much as possible.
In terms of future meetups, I hope the format to be as unique to this group as possible and will be along the lines of
- portrait photography in the first meetup
- my initiative is to organise and bring in fashion models and people off the street
- retouching of photos we have taken in the second meetup
- sharing lessons between each other on portrait retouching
I promise to make meetup no2 better than it was going to be! I'll keep you posted with details. Jazz is on again this weekend in the cafe if you guys decide to meet up anyhow :)
See you soon, Natalie
