Money Matters 

Money matters to all of us, so why not have a group to explore it, from Banks to Bitcoin and beyond? The group will set the agenda, then pool our collective knowledge to increase our understanding. It is important that all discussions be generic in nature, with no financial advice being given. Please contact Anne Briggs, 975 1888,  or Email
