Mac User Groups are springing up across the UK, with new groups emerging in Avon, Beds and Herts, Birmingham and Oxford.
New groups are in the process of forming in Bracknell and at Keele University, with membership of the latter not confined to the university's students. Last year saw the successful rebirth of groups in Brighton and Cambridge.
The groups will be arranging a number of local activities across the UK during the year. There are also plans for them to have a presence at MacExpo, earmarked for London in November.
The London Macintosh User Group is a good starting point to track down information about groups in your area.
