Week 400! While we haven’t been running our #weeknotes posts for all of that time (we starting in week 78), it does mean that DoES Liverpool is 400 weeks old! Happy anniversary to us!
Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.
And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!
