Welcome to the pages of the Thames Valley Region, which covers Beds, Herts, Bucks, Oxfordshire, and part of Berkshire.


IMPORTANT:  Regional Organiser

The region has been searching for a new regional organiser (chair) since April 2015. Certain expressions of interest have not been successful. Since October 2017, the region has had no team able to run events. While there are many events held by others within the region, there are no distinctions advisory days.

Any regional member interested to understand the role of regional organiser and possibly to take on the role, is requested to contact the Society's Volunteer Support Manager. The existing regional committee is available and willing to assist with the induction of a new organiser and stay in post at least while a new event team is recruited and planning for events can restart.
