Jelly – Work, chat, collaborate – with free WiFi

Jelly – work, chat, collaborate … If you work from home, it’s good to have the opportunity to get out and work somewhere else – and to have some company sometimes – someone to chat to over coffee and discuss topical news over lunch. Jelly co-working days provide several opportunities in Shropshire. Shrewsbury Jelly meets on the second Thursday of the month – next one 11th June at the Quirky Coffee Shop, Bear Steps, Shrewsbury and Whitchurch Jelly is the third Thursday of the month at Dearnford Lake near Whitchurch. It’s free to attend and all you need is a laptop.
