The Society would like to establish a Midlands area group to replace the recently defunct Staffordshire area group, and David Jones has offered to co-ordinate efforts. Anybody interested in helping and/or attend meetings is invited to contact David.

It would be useful to know which centres people might be able to attend (Stoke, Stafford, Uttoxeter, Burton, Derby and Lichfield are suggestions) and how much per meeting you would think it worth contributing to meet costs. It is possible that joint meetings with another Society could be a way forward – any suggestions would be appreciated. David can be contacted on email at davidandrosjones@hotmail.co.uk or at 22 Maple Close, Doveridge, Ashbourne DE6 5LU
