A couple months ago, back in August, a handful of people (including @martinhowitt @fergusbisset @carlhaggerty @dalekdoctor @gerrynos and @samnixson) met at The White Hart at Dartington Hall for a couple hours of chat and a couple of drinks. At the time the loose connection was some interest (personal or by association) in innovation, hence the #innopints hashtag.
We had a great time, conversation was wide and varied including working lives and histories, Ken Livingston on Education:
…Devon CC Tough Choices campaign, access to university for people with disabilities, A-level results (expected), badgers, pizzas, a tiny bit about social care, twitter and other networks, school governorship….oh and a tad about innovation (I think).
We agreed to meet up again in a few months, which is looming now. We said we’d brave it in Newton Abbot (which I’m delighted about) and I’m suggesting we go for Mon 21 November. You now have two big choices ahead of you as you get to the end of this post:
1) Are you going to come – you know that you should. A tweet up, in Devon, with the likes of us, who wouldn’t!
2) Would you like to go for a) just drinks b) an indian or c) @pizzacafenewton
Look forward to hearing from you all…come on, say you’ll come.
The plan is to meet at The Eastern Eye in Newton Abbot at 7pm on Mon 21 November – all welcome, please let me know @georgejulian (or leave a comment) if you’re going to be there so I can book a large enough table! Don’t be put off by their website – it’s awful but that’s because they’re busy putting their efforts into making great food!
