"London" Wikimedia Meetup Number 163Edit

NOTE - This meetup will be virtual due to the Coronavirus pandemic

Date and time: Sunday 10 January 2021 13:00—18:00
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole afternoon)

Location: Online
We will use Zoom video chat, the link is below. the wub will host.

Although this meetup is a continuation of the regular "London" pub gatherings, going virtual means that geography is no longer a constraint so do feel free to join from anywhere you may be, in the UK or elsewhere!

Please also invite any Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) who might be interested – spread the word!
