Between Christmas and New Year - replace server software

January - post and discuss future direction and constitution (though much of that is in informally in various threads I will link to from here)

We will also learn in the New Year how the CCIF bid went.

9th February - In Real Life Meeting, plan is the Westbury.  The place near the station that is a natural was being refurbished when I dropped in a couple of weeks ago with just fitters on site; WWRUG meet there this Thursday so I'll have a look / see and have a word then.    Failing Westbury, alternative on same day in Trowbridge.

Following stuff - how much we can do depends on what members want and the 2019/20 development funding position.  We have a number of offers of support for Community Rail in the City as a significant opportunity in May, and other ideas to follow up on.

Software updates through the summer - depending on time and direction, see how we do.   Wider data feeds, better linkage to other social media,  etc ...

I will make this a sticky thread, come back and edit the above as things develop / become clearer.   Also add a post of links to earlier discussion on this topic which even I find hard to find at times, so goodness knows what it's like for occasional visitors to the site!.
