- WordPress Shropshire, back in Shrewsbury
We're back! The new WordPress Shropshire meetup, and back in Shrewsbury! We're going to treat this as if this were the first ever meeting again as it's been almost 2 years since the previous one. This will be quite informal, for everyone to meet other like minded WordPress enthusiasts and/or professionals and allow those gathered to discuss what they feel the group can do as we move into the future, and how it could potentially benefit yourself and others. So please spread the word, I'd love to see as many people there as possible.
