That's great, Lucy.

Perhaps you could add your session on the WMUK events page.

Thanks for this Fabian. Hopefully lots of people will sign up to volunteer
or attend. I will be going to MozFest for the first time this year and am
very pleased to be speaking on the programme. There will actually be quite
a few Wikimedia staff there as a number of people will be coming over from
Germany and I believe Katherine Maher (Wikimedia Foundation ED) will be
giving a keynote.

I'm afraid I won't be able to make either of the East London meet ups but I
look forward to seeing some of you at the end of October!

Hi all,

Last night I went to the first volunteer session for this years Mozfest
<>, October 28-30, 2016, Ravensbourne
College, London. I rediscovered some of the excitement in the lead up to
Wikimania 2014 - indeed I saw many familiar faces.

Mozilla have been very good to the Wikimedia community in the past, I am
pleased to be part of renewing this friendly relationship. As they are
still looking for volunteers, I am sending this out to Wikimedians in the
hope some more of us will get involved and share the Wikimedia approach
with others at Mozfest. If you are interested in volunteering check the Mozfest
volunteer page <>.

As the event is taking place in East London, it will be a topic of
conversation at the East London meetups:

  • East London Meetup 7
    <>: Tuesday 27th
    September 2016 — 19:30 - 21:00 Canary Wharf: perhaps we can see what
    strands WMs want to follow up at Mozfest
  • East London Meetup 8
    <>: Tuesday 27th
    September 2016 — 19:30 - 21:00 Canary Wharf: this will be a Mozfest Fringe
    event, so it will be an opportunity for Mozfest volunteers to find out a
    bit more about the Wikimedian community.

Even if you are not able to commit to Mozfest it would be great to see
some more faces at the East London Wikimedia meetup.

all the best
