There is another Austin A40 Farina facebook site would it not be a idea to try to use this site to push our club iwith thd view of getting the club out to a wide circle of people.
with the hope of giving the A40 club a better presence at shows and events acoss the country

Personally I believe that more individual sites can only be a good idea - they spread the word about A40s to perhaps a wider audience than just one, which might be in danger of becoming too unwieldy. Plus Facebook seems to be more about general chat and in that respect the two sites have attracted their own particular devotees who may - for whatever reason - be reluctant to expand the number of folk to whom they chat (my own opinion).

I too am a believer in the more the merrier, I originally set up the club sanctioned facebook group, Mike H having set up a page sometime before that; Stoney now administers the group on behalf of the committee, we welcome anyone who demonstrates through there own facebook postings a genuine interest in Austin A40 Farinas or a general interest in classic motors. Facebook is a worldwide forum, people join groups for a variety of reasons and not all of them well intentioned. When I set the group up it had no more than a couple of dozen members, it now has considerably more and that in the space of a few months. The point of a club facebook page is just that it is "a club facebook page", (which we do not restrict to paid up members), controlled and moderated by the committee.

my idea is to set up regional groups linked to the main page to they can share info, events etc, ive been on some of the other groups, and i got band as i was trying to promote the club. ie join the club etc so i say no to joining/linking these other so called a40 groups on that basis. and some on here will know the reasons why of which i will not comment.
