WordUp Pompey!’s first meeting was held 6 years ago today in Old Portsmouth.
The WordPress meetups themselves lasted just under a year, but the website has remained.
- I’d like to restart a WordPress meetup for Portsmouth, South Hampshire, West Sussex or wherever.
- Somewhere nearer than Brighton, Bournemouth and London
- But I don’t really want to do it on my own.
- Is there anyone out there who is willing to help, or even take the lead?
- And are there people who are interested anyway?
- If so, contact me via this website or the UK WP Community Slack #meetup-organisers channel

Since this site was created there have been over 500 registrations. Of those less than 1% have been from people who have bothered to contact us to find out what happened with their registration confirmation.
So I’ve turned off the “anyone can register” capability to attempt to reduce the amount of spam registrations.
