Hello from No borders Sheffield..
we very much like the idea of UK wide noborders meeting, we would like 
to propose to have it in a more central location and offer Sheffields 
Social Centre Matilda
for the potential next time....as such to allow people from north and 
south to come...
we will come to London with at least two on the 3rd-4th....
