So you know, I'm a Piier too (Surprise, Surprise(!)) and I am from Staffordshire. I found out about the Pi in July 2015, now I wish I had eariler! My love of Pi has ended up in me dragging my wonderful dad up and down the country to Raspberry Jams because there aren't any close to home.
This immediatly gave me a desire to start one up, after attending my first one in September 2015. Everyone needs a chance to learn - especially in areas they have passion for.
