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.

shock We have edited the thread title now, to spare EmmaMN's blushes.

LillethTheCat Mon 28-Jan-13 15:54:11

Part of me would love to, but the other part is scared that no-one will be interested. how much commitment is involved?

Ohh dear. blush

herewegoloubylou Mon 28-Jan-13 15:57:31

Oh, typical of bleedin Islington to have got its act together in London before every other borough.

Can't volunteer meself however, sadly; have an ongoing commitment in a gin palace hardworking office environment.

TheAccidentalExhibitionist Mon 28-Jan-13 15:59:52

Can we set up international ones?

herewegoloubylou Mon 28-Jan-13 16:02:03

Oooh, we could have town twinning...and a town twinning officer post at MNHQ featuring international jetsetting coordination.
