Comments on Meetup in 2021

“Now post lockdown, I have been attending more face-to-face meetups and connections with people in the local community who have provided me with more localised information to explore things to learn and do in my local area. For example for language learning, have connected with other French speakers in local area and with local businesses who support our language learning at their locations. There’s more of a community feel now.” Helen Blunden, Community Manager, Australia
