There is now an SPS Group on Facebook, which is a ‘Secret’ Group. A secret Facebook group is the most secure of the three types. The only people who can see the group are the members of the group. The plan is to use the group to share ideas, information and post images for comment. If you would like to join the group, which is for current SPS members only, please contact Paula Davies or any SPS member who you know is already a member of the group and ask them to add you to the group.
