It appears that yorkbutterfactory.com is available on the 23rd May But not
the Saturday before.
Can we nail down some details so I can send him information? Probably best
to create the Meetup Page for the event before hand. Guy I spoke to seemed
to want that. I'm happy to make the Meetup page happen if I have the info
needed. I'm sure it'll take little more than an hour to write up something
