I have been watching local groups for a couple of weeks. Those I mean are the: Inhabitants of Bergerac, Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrenees, Poitou-Charentes and Toulouse. Of course the Bergerac and Toulouse ones mean people living in the area or this is their closest members' group rather than literally in either city.
I was looking at membership, all 362 pages of it so not thoroughly and comparing with the groups. I suspect people are moving into those areas where there are groups, are unaware of their existence so that membership is not growing. They may also be a bit moribund, certainly my local one Bergerac is despite attempts to get people to meet as we used to fairly regularly.
My purpose here is really to inform new members of SFN these groups exist, thus to inject new life into them and then perhaps see these groups become active across the board.
Either go to the groups and join up or if there are questions or discussion points raise them here.
