Further to previous updates. The next North meeting joint with the Midlands Group is on the 27th February at Staffordshire University, Stoke on Trent Campus. Starting at 10.30am.
Venue directions are;
Here is the link to the campus map,http://www.staffs.ac.uk/about/campuses/stoke/index.jsp click on the Ashley lecture Theatres to see precisely where the building is.
Car parking is limited and I cannot reserve any, so I suggest that where possible people come by train. You can park in Stoke itself and its about a 15 minutes’ walk or try the Station Car park, but again its only small and spaces are limited.
If coming by train, when exiting the station, turn right and walk towards the traffic lights at the end of the road, turn left, you will see a large building , this is the science centre , continue along Leek road and come onto site via the pedestrian crossings. To your left will be the Brindley building and food court, walk through here ( pick up a coffee if you want to! ) and make your way to the Ashley at the end of the campus, this will probably take about 5-10 minutes to walk from the station.
