Jelly Liverpool is a Liverpool based network, that organises monthly pop up offices where freelancers can get together and work for the day.
Here is a quick round up of Liverpool Digital events and news that has come across my desk (my inbox) in the past couple of weeks.

These groups meet up, examine a problems and then apply themselves to solve the problem. Simply, these can be anything from looking at giving people accurate information on Bus Timetabling to helping people report fly tiping in their area.
