Teacambs on 26 July – venue and update

by on 18 July 2012

Hello everyone

Teacambs on 26 July will be in the Espresso bar of John Lewis in Cambridge from 4.30pm. The place is on the top floor, is huge and they do lots of tea and cakes too. Although you have to sign up for wifi, being on the top floor means that phone reception is far better than in ground floor spaces. Find us in the bar by looking out for Puffles the dragon fairy – local mythical-mischief-maker who tweets at @Puffles2010.

Unfortunately Cllr Nick Clarke cannot make this month’s gathering, but project officers from Connecting Cambridgeshire will be attending in his place so we’ll still get to cover the topic as planned.

There were around 15 of us at the last gathering, and we’re also looking forward to welcoming representatives from Cambridgeshire Police for their first Teacambs too, along with friends from South Cambridgeshire District Council.

A few people from Cambridge went to LocalGovCamp2012. To see what happened at that event, have a look here at the comments, links and write-ups. For those of you interested in keeping tabs at the cutting edge of social media in local government, feel free to join the discussions on Twitter every Wednesday from 8:30pm under the hashtag #lgovsm

If you are interested in social media for the public sector, you are more than welcome to come along to Teacambs. See our FAQs for more about us. We’re not worried about grades, job titles or job descriptions – or even the sector of the economy you work in – if you are in paid employment at all. What matters is your passion for using social media to help improve things locally, in particular the public sector. Having constructive input from beyond the public sector is invaluable to those who work inside that sector. So whether your area of interest is in computer programming or perhaps helping out at your local community centre, we’d love to hear from you.

The organisations we’d  particularly like to come along to future Teacambs gatherings include.

If you know anyone who works for these organisations and is passionate about social media, please let them know of our next gathering. For information on what we’ve covered at previous gatherings, please see our Teacambs Facebook page for all of the links. We also tweet at @Teacambs.
