A very warm welcome to the Eastern Branch page of the new AGTO website.
We aim to keep the features, events and news from the Branch as up-to-date as possible so enhancing what is happening in our area. Eastern Branch stretches from the south, through Essex into Suffolk and Norfolk, then inland to Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, finishing just north of the Thames.
With 90 plus members, communication has always been difficult because the area covered is so large. Also transport costs, and of course time, are important to our members. We hope to improve the way in which we can talk together more regularly without the expense.
Due to the lockdown and stay at home advice, many of you have been able to maintain contact by email, Zoom, Skype and other online platforms. Our aim at Eastern Branch is to try to embrace this by means of added information designed for you and your group. This should bring together like-minded people who might share their plans and events for when we are free to travel again.
You should have received a short survey by email/post and we hope you will complete it and add any relevant information about your group and plans for the future.
Watch this space for news, views and feature
The Eastern Branch welcomes enquiries from budding and new group organisers to our existing family of over 90 members in the Branch which covers Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Milton Keynes, Norfolk, Suffolk and the London post code areas of London E, N and NW.
All Members, please advise the Membership Secretary if your email contact details have changed since you first joined the AGTO – this is most important for continued contact and Membership updates.
