Thanks Phil,

Looks like it is a 20 minute walk west from Piccadilly [1]. I've messaged
to check that there is time during the meeting to cover OpenStreetMap.
Would be looking for a basic intro to editing (perhaps with iD as that
seems to be the starter editor of choice now) and pointing in the direction
of the UK Quarterly project [2]. Would be good to demo how to find a school
that needs mapping (using the tools we have), then how to add a simple
amenity=school area to OSM.

I shall let you know when I know more.
