UK Gathering – FI / PF Blogger & Readers – 3rd January 2015 UPDATE


Back in October, I set up a UK gathering for Bloggers and Readers of Personal Finance and Financial Independence. You can find the original post here

There has been some interest in the meet up and I’m really looking forward to meeting you all. We’re now just 2 weeks away, and I wanted to send out a reminder to see if anyone else was interested in coming along. The primary reason for the gathering is to meet like minded people, as we’re a rare bunch. Due to the time of year, I was going to anchor the meeting around setting 2015 Goals. We can discuss what are plans for for the New Year, which I hope will inspire and motivate others, and act as a form of commitment for the individual. My plan is to make the whole thing very informal and relaxed. 

Here are the details if you’re interested:

  • Saturday 3rd January 2015, at Symonds Yat, Herefordshire. There’s a pub right next to the River Wye called the Saracens Head – Link to website. The pubs Postcode is HR9 6JL
  • I’ve proposed meeting at 11am.
  • They have loads of seating (and parking) by the river, we can relax, chat and drink (tea or alcohol).
  • We can choose to sit there all day, walk alongside the river to the rope bridge, or if people have the energy, we could walk up the hill to Symonds Yat Rock. 
If you have any questions about the day, just leave a comment or contact me separately. 


UK Gathering Spring 2015

I’ve received a lot of interest in attending a day like this, but the location and dates were a limiting factor. I’ve already started talks with Weenie at Quietly Saving and The FIREstarter about a date in the Spring (TBC), and we’re planning on meeting in a more central location – Stratford upon Avon. I’ll update you all with further details in the New Year on this. We’re keen to get as many people there as possible within our community. Stay tuned!

If I don’t speak to you before, I hope you have an amazing Christmas and New Year! I hope to see you soon.

    Hi Huw, thanks for organising this. I wish I could attend but I'm afraid the date doesn't work for me. However I would be interested in something in the Spring and Stratford is just down the road from me so I will be watching out for your updates.

    A very happy Christmas to you too 🙂

    I would love to meet up with like minded people. The meet on 3rd January would be great, however, if you are planning another meet in Spring then maybe that would be better for me to attend as I live in Wensleydale which is a 460 mile round trip.

    Hi Cerridwen,

    No problem at all! It seems like the Spring option is going to be really popular with the timing and location. We'll keep you posted. If I don't speak to you before, have an amazing Christmas!

    All the best

    Hi Richard,

    Wow, that would be a long round trip! Stratford should make that more manageable for you. I hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year!

    All the best

    Huw,

    That's a great idea! I've been thinking of doing something similar in Brussels for everyone who is interested. Some of my readers have even e-mailed me about it.

    Curious to read how it was. Maybe I'll take the plunge aswel.

    Have fun,
    Happy holidays,
    NMW

    Hi NMW,

    I first saw it on MMM website, and I thought the same thing. I love it!

    I back you to do it 100% NMW! I can't meet to meet like-minded people around the UK. I'll keep you posted with how it goes too.

    Thank you for the well wishes. I hope you have a brilliant Christmas and New Year too!

    Yes, I would love to meet up in the spring – throw some dates out to see which one is more convenient for everyone!

    Great news Weenie. I think the Spring gathering is going to be pretty big you know!

    I'll put a date out there and see what people think. My aim is to have a date nailed down by the end of Jan for Mar/Apr time. Watch this space!

    Hi huw, long time reader but first time commenter. Gutted to miss the meet up, have always been jealous of mmm's boulder and beyond meet ups. Was wondering if I could message you in a non public forum, as have something interesting and no doubt surprising on the subject of the uk gathering. Happy to leave my email address in a post if you can delete it afterwards.

    P.s I'm not a spammer!
    Best wishes. A H
