 +
 +Kindly hosted by the Nene Valley Railway in their Study Centre meeting room at Wansford
 +
 +Thanks to Russ Jenner for organising the venue for us.
 +
 +This is an Arduino themed meeting. ​
 +
 +----
 +

 +          ​
 +          Our usual practical problem solving clinic session
 +          ​
 +          We may also have some NVR signal box tours available organised by Russ Jenner
 +
 +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 +
 +We will ask for £2 per head to cover the room hire cost and £1 each in the "​honesty box" will cover as many teas and coffees as you want all day. This money will all go to the Nene Valley Railway.
 +
 +A selection of MERG kits will be available for purchase. If you have specific requirements,​ then it would be best to pre-order what you want from the kit locker for collection at the meeting, as we will only have a selection of stock at the meeting.
 +
 +The NVR cafe will be open from about 8:30 for bacon butties or full breakfast, and also open at lunchtime. However, as it is a running weekend including Thomas the Tank Engine, it may be very busy. For that reason, we have scheduled lunch fairly early, and we will probably make arrangements to pre-order during the morning.
 +
 +The meeting room is step-free accessible. If you need a disabled parking space reserved close up, please let us know.
 +
 +For those who would like to come by train, we can arrange to collect you from Peterborough station or, if you can get there early enough, I can collect from Wellingborough station on my way to the meeting about 7:30am.
 +
 +If you would like to come, please send an email to eastmids@merg.org.uk or post a message in the East Midlands Area group section of the MERG forum. You will get a reply in due course with full address details and directions to the venue.
 +
 +Members from outside the East Midlands are always welcome at our meetings, as are visitors. Please just let us know you are coming so we can plan for the numbers expected.
