About the   local group

The coordinator of the   local group is .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The SfEP   local group was launched in December 2009. We welcome colleagues from across the Cotswolds region, including SfEP colleagues who belong to the Oxford and Three Counties local groups. We also welcome SfEP members who currently reside outside the Cotswolds but who have an interest in this beautiful region.

Our activities

The rationale for the   local group is to provide opportunities for colleagues in the region to meet, talk and share. To this end, we organise about five social events every year. These range from attending talks to lunches to walks. Talking shop is neither banned nor obligatory. We encourage friends and family to come along too. Where possible, the locations and timings of our events are varied to encourage attendance. We routinely coordinate our events with the Oxford and Three Counties local groups.

Our communication

We use email and the SfEP’s forums to plan and coordinate our activities. Non-members of the SfEP can attend up to three events. Please get in touch with .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for further information about the   local group and our upcoming activities.
