Fancy organising some local MN Meet-ups? Free Dodo Pad stationery for anyone who wants to become a Local Ambassador in the next week…

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.

Did forget to put my NN in the email blush
Should I send another one, or try to pm you, EmmaMN

Where should I send the email? I pm'd Emma yesterday, but have not had a reply so am worried the message has got lost en route.

Derby and its wonderful neighbour, Nottingham, need some help. (Not Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire, there's another lovely Local Editor for these and I'm sure they will beg ask for help if they need it.)

smile You have a lovely Local Editor who will take you for cake and coffee. The listings for both should be vamped up by the end of the week so you all have time to make some plans for half term.

Here's Nottingham on Twitter: twitter.com/MNetNottingham

What happens if your local site is apparently devoid of life at the moment?

I can do Essex, am in South Essex unless that's already covered. Will email.

i'd do it but from the selection of parents at the dcs school i very much doubt theres any mners in the midst sad when i move later this year sign me up grin

Hmm. I'm in London, specifically Marylebone in the borough of Westminster. Have clicked through the different areas in the Meet up section but none have anything active.

I think the areas covered are very tight ie there's Marylebone, Marylebone Road, Oxford Street, Lisson Grove etc. I think you'd be better having these small areas covered by one big area. It's too specific.

I'm willing to organise a meet up, in fact I am hoping to meet some mums for coffee already. I'm not sure if I could be a local ambassador as I've just moved here and know no-one and nothing of the area yet. Maybe it would be a way of meeting people though. The friendship bench is also empty. Should I email you or is someone already active in these areas? I couldn't find them.

When will hear about if we are going to be LA's? I emailed a few days ago (North Yorkshire area) and haven't had a reply yet. Im quite looking forward to the prospect of meeting other mums near me now.

mummymccar Thu 31-Jan-13 14:19:22

Not sure if I e-mailed the right place. Shall I e-mail again or will that make things messy if it did end up in the right box? I was applying for Portswood in Southampton.

BadRoly Thu 31-Jan-13 14:20:45

I have emailed you too (I think)
