One focuses on the Greater Birmingham area and the other on the Coventry and Warwickshire area. The Milton Keynes group covers Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire. All groups provide different but complementary areas of focus allowing people to access a wide range of people, ideas and experiences.
