Just to keep everyone informed, I've created a facebook group (in addition to the existing "page"). If anyone is on facebook, you should be able to add members to the SHMCC group (I've already added quite a few).
Hopefully it will make it easier to publicise things.
Still a little confused by things though, I can create an event in both the group and the page, but I (Tony) have to "host" it if it's in the group. But SHMCC host it if it's on the "page". So probably need a little fine tuning.
Any questions/suggestions, feel free to contact me.
