I may be able to help with this, especially on the content side. If
someone can come up with a list of things that need writing, I can
certainly help write them, although as I'm currently in the process of
rewriting a very large website at work I may be a little slow in getting
things done.

If the number of people who email me and ask me at work about Ubuntu are
anything to go by, I think we could organise a decent installfest
somewhere in the Midlands.

On a related note, I was asked the other day if we had any Ubuntu mouse
mats for an IT lab in a secondary school. Do such things exist and how
would I go about procuring them?
