Would you like to organise a regular-ish meet-up in your Local area?

It doesn't have to involve coffee and toddlers. It could be an evening in a gin palace, a frenzy of biscuit-making at a cookery school or a trip to the nearest canoeing centre. We won't judge.

You get to be called Local Ambassador (with a special calling card, no less) and there are some shiny Meet-ups pages in Local which will make get-togethers easier to organise. Here are a few examples of Meet-ups that are already active:

local.mumsnet.com/islington/group-meet-ups/islington
local.mumsnet.com/oxford/group-meet-ups/headington
local.mumsnet.com/exeter/group-meet-ups/exeter-centre
local.mumsnet.com/norwich/group-meet-ups/norwich-centre
local.mumsnet.com/bolton-bury/group-meet-ups/bolton
local.mumsnet.com/bath/group-meet-ups/bath

Of course, you can just join an existing group (look on local.mumsnet.com to find your nearest site), but anyone who signs up before midnight on Monday Feb 4 to be a Local Ambassador will receive a Dodo Book For Cooks to archive their favourite recipes and a Dodo Household Stuff Book to keep their paperwork in order.

Please email local@mumsnet.com putting 'Dodo Ambassador' in the subject field and stating in the email your local area/town.

Can look into it for Sheffield still, along with Katz.

Hulababy Sat 02-Feb-13 12:19:00

Do I need to email to confirm for Sheffield or am I still down?

KatyPeril Sat 02-Feb-13 13:03:21

wonderstuff Sat 02-Feb-13 20:00:13

I have emailed regarding the Isle of Wight - I presume we can have our own local instead of jumping in with Southampton or Portsmouth?

Emma - did you get my email????

How do we know if you have got our emails?

Do you email back? (In which case you haven't got it as I've not received one) or are you waiting until there is actually a group to arrange meets for (as said below, very, very quiet in my 'local')

wonderstuff Sun 03-Feb-13 20:28:54
