WordUp Pompey! – 6 years old today

October 20, 2017 in News

WordUp Pompey!’s first meeting was held 6 years ago today in Old Portsmouth.

The WordPress meetups themselves lasted just under a year, but the website has remained.

  • I’d like to restart a WordPress meetup for Portsmouth, South Hampshire, West Sussex or wherever.
  • Somewhere nearer than Brighton, Bournemouth and London
  • But I don’t really want to do it on my own.
  • Is there anyone out there who is willing to help, or even take the lead?
  • And are there people who are interested anyway?
  • If so, contact me via this website or the UK WP Community Slack #meetup-organisers channel
