(just to add a bit to what Jerry said...)

Hi Tony,

First of all, welcome!

You've probably already found the "Contact channels" page on the wiki https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contact_channels .  OSM globally uses lots of different mailing lists, forums, social network sites etc.  It can be a bit confusing, but Bryan Housel (the tireless main developer of the iD editor) is planning to tie some of these loose ends together a bit better, and the summary I gave for his benefit at https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk/2018-April/080447.html for GB might also be useful.

Slightly further afield than Manchester, there are regular meetups in the East and West Midlands, which might be doable from Chorley (I'm in the East Midlands and have worked occasionally just west of Chorley, though I've never tried a late-night train journey...).

With regard to the Manchester OSM UK meeting, I'm sure when the OSM UK folks are ready with an official annoucement at https://osmuk.org/ it'll get featured in the regular "weekly" - country-level meetups often do.  Anyone can submit news for that by the way - have a look at http://www.weeklyosm.eu/this-news-should-be-in-weeklyosm for details.

Best Regards,

Hi All

Starting to get into OSM mapping and things OSM - so I've found this talk-gb mail system, I've just found the website OSM UK and seen the weeklyOSM 403 global newsletter.

I can't see the AGM details on the OSM UK website, nor details on the AGM in the list of events carried in the weeklyOSM letter. Should the AGM be added to these places?

I hope to attend the AGM  - Manchester is close to me as I live in Lancashire - so I hope to be able to meet you guys and check what I am doing is correct.

To help identification will people be wearing name cards with their OSM handle, name and location e.g. . . .
