Where Shall We Meet?

October 2012:

In October, we launched our 'Local Pages' feature to create a space for people to talk about what's happening in their community. When you log in as a user, your default page will now be your local page. Every area in the UK has a local page and we will initially be having a promotional focus in the North Surrey and Berkshire area.

See EGHAM and STAINES-UPON-THAMES for examples of our local pages, or search below for your own postcode district.
