Our first Raspberry Jam event took place in Preston, Lancashire back in July 2012 and we've been meeting every month since then. Due to restrictions in place during the Covid-19 epidemic, we moved to hosting our regular events online. You're joining us on an adventure as we develop our online events and we invite you to join us when you can, where ever you live, whatever your background or age.
