:D I saw this and thought, oh Christchurch parish Castlerock (North coast of N. Ireland) but alas, I am ~12,000 miles wrong. In fact, I think if you drill down directly from N Ireland through the core of the earth you come out around New Zealand.

Enjoy your event. I'll not be there :)

Damn, I thought you meant Christchurch., Cambs, UK! That would have been convenient!

For those in Christchurch near Bournemouth, there is a Raspberry Jam in Poole on April 5th at the RNLI college - tickets are on eventbrite. Part of me wishes it was Christchurch NZ though...I'd love to be back there!

Well if you ever are near Christchurch NZ stop in for a guest speaking spot. You'd probably be our first international speaker :D

Hi there,

I'm no longer running a Raspberry Jam in Christchurch but someone else might be. The next best thing that I know of would be to check out one of the local Code Clubs http://www.codeclub.nz

They teach Scratch, Web Development and Python which can all be done on a Pi :)

Have fun,
Benet.
