May I suggest organising the occasional meeting for a date other than the weekend. I am only in London during the week and so only available to show up at this time. Any weekday would do...

Yes, I don't see any point in having the meeting anywhere other than
London for now - further meetings could be planned for other locations
(or for further more local initiatives, as mentioned at the last
meeting). I'll come down for the meeting anyway and possibly we'll
have greater interest/commitment this time since we will have more
time to give people notice. (Copying to the wikimedia-uk list.)
