    If anyone wants my place, that's fine. I'm just an 'interested member of the public' and I could attend the Bristol one instead.

    I'm down in South Wales I'm afraid, so someone can go in my place.

    Sorry, I won't be able to make this one. I've deleted myself from the Doodle.

    I haven't been on a basic workshop but have used the routeing guide on quite a few occasions and I am happy with the general concepts about fares and hunting for cheaper tickets so I've added my name to the doodle the advance workshop in London.

    We have another advanced one in London coming up, we have 1 place available. We are also looking at other areas too, please do continue to reply below if you are interested and state where you are based and what sort of workshop you want to attend (and optionally what topics you'd like to cover).

    One in Yorkshire/Lancashire. I'd love to cover how to approach misinformed/unaware staff I.e. staff refusing to get you onward transport, staff not knowing about split ticketing rights, staff questioning rousteing etc. - in terms of beyond quoting the NRCoT

    Long time reader but new poster. I would be interested in an introductory workshop. In particular I would like to understand the Routeing Guide in more detail! I live near Cambridge and can get to London easily.

    I'd be interested in attending an introductory workshop too as I had to cancel before. Anywhere near to London or Southampton.

    Good topics to cover, would be very helpful to learn these beyond the NRCoT and how to deal with staff on such issues.

    I am certainly interested in a fares workshop. My preferred location would be Edinburgh (or anywhere in the Central Belt) but I'm pretty mobile and as long as I'm free on the day I can probably get down as far as York or Preston.

    Here is a Doodle for the next London workshop: https://doodle.com/poll/bh463m8dr8vbfzfp we will decide what topics to cover once we have an idea of who is available on that day and what topics people want to cover.

    Before that, we have one in Nottingham this Saturday 26th January, please get in touch if you are interested. edit: now full!

    Hi Yorkie,
    I wouldn't mind a trip over to Nottingham, if the place is still available?
    Could you let me have the details and I'll make sure I can get there?
    Cheers,
    Mat

    Where are you based roughly?

    We now have 5 for Nottingham, which is the absolute maximum I'd recommend.

    Wigan/Manchester. Don't worry if it's not good for this weekend I'm more than happy to wait for another chance.
