  • do you ever have meetings anywhere else other than england? i live in the north of ireland?

  • We have tried in NI and Ireland but have not had the support from the Rheumatology units that we need in order to get a group off the ground. We always require local volunteers to get groups started as we are based in Berkshire. If this is something you think you would like to get involved in please email me directly - groups@nras.org.uk.

    Kind regards,

  • Why do you not come up to Northumberland or the Scottish Borders. We are quite civilized and do not rustle sheep or cattle and pleased to say we do not hang southerners. My site name is a nondeplume and I am quite civilized. Mind some most extreme LOL do ride the boundrys once a year, without weapons

  • Dear Bob,

    We always require local volunteers along with their rhematology team to get groups started as we are based in Berkshire. If this is something you think you would like to get involved in please email me directly - groups@nras.org.uk.

  • Do you know I've wondered before about your user name Bob. Just googled it & understand why now!! British History was one of my favourite subjects at school & remains an interest but never happened upon this before. Going to settle back & read more!! Thanks for posting your reply, I may never have known otherwise.

  • Hello Heels

    Interesting reading, All may happen again if Scotland goes independent, My name is made up of three Riever surnames and my wife has a maiden name from the same period. So we at times have little battles of disagreement.

    BOB

  • Not settled into it yet Bob, only just got up as had a busy morning/early afternoon then had a lie down but will later when the house is quiet & I can concentrate.
