Hello Phil and welcome to the club.
You'll be delighted to hear there is a fairly active bunch of fools in the area and we meet up most Saturdays and at least one Sunday a month. Saturday meetings are normally in Bromsgrove and Sundays in Tewkesbury.
The Region 25 section has all you need to know in it. There's even a diary of what we are up to and who is going to where. You'll find us here
If I can help further please post in Region 25, drop me a PM or call me. My contact details and those of the assistant reps etc. are here
