Regular, informal, online meetings of Group members

A number of Share and Chat gatherings have been held this year and are proving a useful means of finding out more about what those who attend would want from the Group and hearing about some of the less well known destinations members have visited. These sessions depend very much on Group member involvement. They are not recorded.

If you can offer an item for a future gathering, please contact Richard Lewis (
