I am looking for a contact for the Durham branch - there is a flag on the map but no details appear.

Hi Charlotte

Thanks for letting us know about the flag, we'll get that sorted out.

You might be best trying the Tyne & Wear Branch, they should be able to help:

Best wishes,

Hi Tim

Unfortunately the Leicester Branch has ceased to exist. Apologies for the out of date map - we'll be getting it updated soon!

The East Midlands seems to be a bit barren, I'm in Nottingham and closest seems to be Lincoln, any advice?

Hi Mark, unfortunately as Anne says, the Leicester branch has now closed so Lincoln is your nearest I’m afraid. The Lincoln branch is active, as is Sheffield, but that's a long way to go. You could look to set something up locally if you have the time (and energy!). When I was looking to set up a new branch I started very small and invited a few colleagues to a 'bring and brag' or 'show and tell' with an agenda that was just around 'bring your most interesting lesson ideas/units of work to share'. Bring one good idea and go away with however many come to the meeting was how I billed it. You can also have a small amout of time for a collective 'sharing of issues' but with a focus on helping each other to develop solutions. If that becomes embedded, say once a term, set up a branch, claim subventions etc from the GA and look at developing a programme, inviting speakers etc if you wish. We would help with that - contacts, ideas etc. Alan P set this kind of thing up effectively - sometimes he suggested in schools, sometimes as a 'beer meet'.
