Just to keep people informed.

The post from Rab Bark quoted earlier about a meeting is two years old, so it looks like he is no longer able to progress this.

On behalf of the Trustees (they have all been informed) I have accepted Stuart's offer to start the ball rolling again.

As for area Stuart and I are concerned by the very large size of the currently quoted "Strathclyde Area", however it does not cover all of the Stratchclyde SCG (LRF for our English readers) which is based on the Strathclyde Police Area and also covers Argyll and Bute (so even bigger).

As is the norm we are happy for groups to start with whatever area they feel able to cope with (perhaps to expand later or even to start big and then split)? And the name is also up for discussion. Groups are autonomous in this respect and our only hard and fast rule is that you do not try and start up in an area already covered by another group (unless by mutual consent).

So good luck guys and don't forget to ask if you need any advice, remember there is no such thing as a stupid question

I think there are quite a few guys wanting to get involved down Argyll way, obviously we`ll have to see what actual interest is like before committing to such a large area, but Stuart is on the case
