Group for people who work from home?

Does anyone here know about a group for people who work from home to get together socially on an occasional basis? There are groups like that in other areas, and I wondered whether Lewes has one, given how many people there are working from home here.

Good idea Hugh, although many of us have developed agoraphobia from curtain twitching and working from home for too long now...so the idea of a social gathering would make our heads explode with fear and anxiety

Good morning Hugh. If all these people are working from home then how did you know how many there are? Do they have their own social group in Lewes? Or do you secretly have psychic powers enabling you to see them behind their curtains? If so I would like to form a social group for all of us who have the "gift". Kind regards, Meg.

One thing I've always wondered is why people say 'work FROM home' rather than 'work AT home'? I've done it myself and always said 'I'll be working at home on Monday...' or whatever day. Do people say 'I'll be working from the office'?

Hi Hugh, you could always start a Meetup group for Lewes home workers / self employed people. I would probably join it myself should you do so. I currently belong to the Brighton equivalent.

Thanks for the responses. I think this would be a good idea, and I'm happy to do some organising, though I'm not sure I fancy paying their monthly fee! I'll have a think about how it would work. In the meantime, if you're interested, please email me (hugh@jacksonproofreadingservices.com).

Hugh, a social Meetup group that I belong to charges a flat fee of 4.50 per annum, payable in January, for regular attenders. If you prefer not to pay that, then it's 50p for each meeting you go to.

Working FROM home refers to the practice of carrying out work , (usually office work) AT home but which also includes travel to other venues ( e.g.. visits) as part of the job. Working AT home does not include the latter

What a good idea . I worked at home for 16 years but have now had a change of career simply for the social benefits . The Group meet in Lewes on the first Tues of every month at The Dorset - have a look at their web site .

I would like to find a work from home job (preferably data base entry or accounts). I am recently retired and want to earn about 500.00 per month. Do any of you know where I can find opportunities? I have looked on line but some ads look a bit dodgy! Any thoughts please
