I'm in Coventry myself (at Warwick uni), and now that I've finished exams I'd like to see if there's sufficient interest for a meetup in the area.
(I'm actually only around for another six weeks or so, but even if we only manage to meet once or twice, that seems worth doing.)
If there's interest, I'm happy to organise; I'd default to a saturday afternoon thing, but can probably work with any time. (And I don't know Birmingham, so if we go there, suggestions for where to meet would be useful.)
(There was an attempt a while back which didn't take off, but it can't hurt to try again. I'll message those two posters in case they don't see this.)
