UK Branch

ALL BRANCH MEETINGS AND EVENTS ARE CANCELLED AND POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Sadly the South East branch has had to close due to illness of the branch officials.  There is now just one branch in the United Kingdom and members from all over the UK AND around the world are welcome to join.  The same applies to the Malta branch - your place of residency does not preclude you from making the choice of which branch to join - or even to joining both !
