I've just voted. Here's a tip for anyone who hasn't yet voted. I found it difficult to locate the society as there are many thousands of bodies vying for funding and the society didn't come onto the screen when I typed BCSS or the full name. In the end I just typed British in the search box and the society came up on the first page.

Following on from the 'facebook' thread, this is a perfect example of us doing social media badly - there's no mention of this on the Facebook Page (liked by 5775 people), in the Facebook Group (3506 members), on Twitter (1137 followers) or on Instagram (1315 followers). On the two facebooks, the pinned post is about the calendar. I know it would be good if this sold enough to avoid making a GBP296 loss as it did last year but surely it could be rotated with other things occasionally, such as this? or the membership offer?
