If you would like to help us but don’t think you have enough time to give to be on the committee, then please do tell us. We are always looking for people who can help with little things that perhaps we either don’t have the time to do or require someone with more knowledge of how to do something. We welcome any offer and will not expect you to do more than you are willing. Use the form on the ‘Contact Us’ page and we will respond to you as soon as we can.

    • Hi Helena,
      The talks take place at the Perry Beeches the Free School in Birmingham city centre. We have a new ‘How to get to a venue page’ that gives you more information about transportation available to the area. Hope to see you at one of our talks! 🙂
