Hia Genny and everyone
It probably would be better and quicker (for the group) to take up Rob's
kind offer of him 'moving on' with the work of creating the mission
statement, particulary as there is no uptake from other volunteers to share
the task . .
all the best with it
ill come back again Genny, when i have more time, with some thoughts about
the rest of the message . .
meeting in Aberystwyth / Cardiff .. . .great idea
did we actually agree that the next one would be Aberystwyth?
