Can't see how to delete a post, sorry! I should've read more of the posts on this partic bit of the board and I would've found the answer I wanted before I posted this!!

Please ignore thread! Lol

Ooo look, I could do a thread all on my own!! I'm guessing the online one is no longer active as I've not had a response from the group. :(

I don't know for certain if they are still running, but you haven't given them much of a chance to respond! It has only been 2 days since you contacted them.

But cos it's a Facebook group, which has notifications, I had assumed someone might've responded, even if just to say its not still running.

P'ah. How can anyone survive without looking at FB at least twice a day?! :rolleyes::p;)
Because its not the only way in which we can communicate with other people ;)

I'm a member of the Internet (Facebook) Trefoil Guild, and I'll be honest with you - they seem a nice bunch of folk, but if you're looking for instant and immediate communication via this medium, then I'd probably suggest this group isn't going to be the best option for you.

It's active - but I'd say its more of a conversational group, there's quite a lot of us living overseas so it's not really a "meeting up and doing stuff" kind of group.

Have you contacted your County Trefoil Guild chairman to see if there is a young Trefoil Group within your county that maybe you could connect up with? She may also know of a Guild near you that has younger members. If you don`t know who she is, contact the National Trefoil Guild website and they will put you in touch. it might be a good idea to contact them anyway and see if they can help you, as Trefoil Guild is keen to attract younger members.

I'll ask my DC this weekend cos I'll see her at sleepover. I'm pretty certain there's an 'old' one locally, but not much more. If she doesn't know I'll ask further.
Thanks :)

you always start one, or join the 'old one' in your area. If you manage to get a few younger members going, the perception of Trefoil Guild might change..... no promises though.....

It's only "old" because of who the current members are ;)
You make it "younger" by joining it ......

I don't know how old you are - but don't rule out an existing group based on age.
OK they might do activities that don't immediately appeal to you, but they're doing what appeals to current members - not a daft idea!
So if you or I became a member of that "old" group, we might suggest other ideas ......

You can often be more effective in changing something from the inside!
