We are indeed fortunate to have a monthly Newsletter, which is usually distributed in time for the first meeting of each month.
It gives vital up-to-date information about what the club has been up to, what it has planned for the future and where it's all taking place, together with some interesting articles submitted by Members.
There is a G3UES Groups.io Discussion Group, which is available to all Members.
