    Woodshed
    There seems to be a void of groups/clubs in the Basingstoke area? Which is where I am. Any advice on how to set one up?

  2. Woodshed October 16th, 2014 11:27 pm

    Neil: I’m the wrong person to ask. But I did talk to people who have set up clubs a while back. Hopefully that’s some help.

  3. bill November 11th, 2014 7:29 pm

    just been to my first uke fest gig, went on the omega uke express at the weekend and it was magic, totally hooked now and would really like to join/start up a group, or just get together with like minded people in ayrshire. anybody interested?

  4. Carol December 29th, 2014 1:13 pm

    Did you ever get round to setting up a club in Basingstoke? I’m there too and could do with people to practise with!

    Cheers

    Phil

    Phil. Nowt in Basingstoke. Went to one in Kingsclere but stopped going, just wrong songbook and demographic for my taste. So still looking for anyone. What do you like to play?

  8. john bassett February 14th, 2015 6:14 pm

    New uke club, started Jan 2015. 64 members already.

    I’ve never picked up a uke and can’t read music so looking for a very beginner group in the Basingstoke area if there is such a thing.

  10. Neil February 16th, 2015 12:47 pm

    I would start a group, but I have no idea on how to do it and I would class myself as not beginner but a long way off teacher! Happy to get together with others from Basingstoke to try, not even sure how to do that! But I have started a facebook group, Basingstoke Ukulele Group, search for that and lets try and get this going!

    from your site as it no longer Exists.

    Thanks

    I would love to get a little Uku group going in Wrexham.
    I can play a bit. perhaps if we have like minded people we could get going and hire a teacher or something.
    just have a bit of fun

  13. Pat W April 14th, 2015 10:57 pm

    Hello Mike,

    I play a little and would be interested in joining a group in order to improve my playing. I live just outside Wrexham.

    Hi Al,

    I have been updating my spreadsheet for north east England uke clubs and a couple of Cumbrian ones that have submitted their details so I have got a few additions and updates for your list.

    Something about your map has been puzzling me though.

    I don’t what has sent it wonky but have a look at the two place markers at Skelton near Middlesbrough. You need to zoom right in to see that there are two placemarkers there.

    One of the placemarkers is for “Uke at the Duke” in Shoreham on Sea (somewhere Down South where there be dragons!) but the “Details from Google Maps” section refers to an address where the Cleveland Ukuleles used to meet, at Saltburn by the Sea. Maybe . . . . because the Shoreham on Sea address has not got a postcode, Google Maps has got too clever for its own good and decided “Shoreham on Sea” and “Saltburn by the Sea” are the same place?

    The reason I think that that might be the problem is that the other placemarker right next to it is for Cleveland Ukuleles – and the “Details from Google Maps” section says that it is in Cleveland, Ohio!

    The club details are changing all the time but, for today anyway, these are the new ones, the changed ones and the gone-but-not-forgotten ones. (There are at least another five, maybe more, in the north east that have not entered details onto the spreadsheet and there are many more in Cumbria – it seems like there is a ukulele club or band behind every blade of grass in Cumbria :-)

    Liz: Blimey! Thanks so much for all the info. I’ll try to get those sorted out.

  16. Liz Panton April 30th, 2015 4:23 pm

    This is a very boring, geeky reply – nothing to do with actual uke clubs if anyone reading this wants to skip it!

    I am kicking myself that I put the email addresses in the post. I didn’t realise that they would come out as clickable links – a field day for spam bots! ;-(

    It was a bit tedious making the list but it meant that I looked properly at the details and spotted some errors that had been lurking there for ages. I only list the club names on the ukes4fun blog itself – I am never going to do what you do and list the addresses and websites too :-) There was just so much stuff that I realised it would be a nightmare if you had to work from the spreadsheet.

    Damn! Thought too late that that might actually be easier! Worked out how to make downloadable csv file link in case that is easier for you – it will keep updating as the spreadsheet updates too! Aha! Better late than never :-) I have embedded it on this page:
    http://ukes4fun.org.uk/north-east-and-cumbria-uke-sessions-classes-etc/

    It looks from your map as if you are using a similar method as I am to get a map generated from a Google Spreadsheet – but using some other sort of app to me.

    Something I noticed when I was going through my spreadsheet details was that one club had disappeared altogether and an old record that I had deleted years ago had reappeared. This is just a heads-up in case the same thing happens with your spreadsheet.

    I think that the reversion to an older version happened when Google changed from Google Docs to Google Drive. The club that disappeared would be one that I would have entered directly into the spreadsheet, rather than via this form:
    http://j.mp/NEukesForm The one that reappeared, the only one that I deleted, would have had the data entered via the Form.

    I think that somehow, in the swap from Google Docs to Google Drive, the new Google Drive version was based on data collected via the Form, rather than the data in the spreadsheet. That is the only thing I can think of to explain what happened.

    Maybe someone reading this will have a better idea but, in the meantime, if you used a form to enter the data then it might be worth having a look to see if anything has gone amiss with your data too?

  17. Woodshed April 30th, 2015 6:50 pm

    Liz: I took out the email addresses (I don’t think it matters to scrapers whether it’s linked or not).

  18. Liz Panton May 1st, 2015 12:50 pm

    Thank you for removing the email addresses Al! :-)
