    Hello Brits!

    Thanks for joining the Brits group! I'm not really sure how things will work or what we'll use this group for, but it will be useful to have all the UK people in one place so that we can organise get-togethers and stuff. We can share photos and stuff too.

          Hey guys.

          15 August is the day of our get-together. 12 o'clock by the pier in Weston-super-Mare. The more the merrier!

              Hi fellow solo orchids. Just joined. I live in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I am pleased that there is at least something for UK guys. Seems like the Yanks have this thing sewn up and we have to make do with a page on the Macmillan website. Just had right I/O only 6 days ago and have got CT scan booked a couple of days after Christmas. Scary times! Would be great to hear from anyone in the UK to share experience and answer questions. Happy Christmas. Pete
