    @MEMarge thanks for the suggestion and sorry for the slow reply. I think we're aiming a bit more at Sheffield/South Yorkshire networks and MEA are more national. Charles Shepherd is at the groups conference today though so I'll get someone to ask him. Still predominantly housebound so can't be there to meet him myself. Admittedly I've left this a bit late now as deadline is Monday but we'll see.
