Hi Richard & welcome to Our Society!

This network is in the early stages of development so we'd very much appreciate any comments or suggestions that you have. I've set up a Feedback Forum for this, so please do share your thoughts there.

You can read a bit more about Our Society and what we hope to achieve by having a read of our About Us page.

As a quick way to get the ball rolling, please feel free to say hello and tell us a bit about yourself in the "Who are you?" thread.

Thanks again for joining, please contact me if you have any problems, and do feel free to set up your own group or discussion - I'm happy to assist with either.
