CA7C 100Facebook Sites You may well have noticed that we seem to have two Facebook sites. The committee feel that this is a bit confusing and have agreed to have just the one site -  The Friends of the Cornwall Austin Seven Club.

The committee also feel that it should be open to anyone to request to join the group, as a way of promoting our existence to non-members and encouraging them to join. It will continue to be made clear that joining the Facebook site does not mean that they are a club members and that the site will contain information aimed at members.

The site will be one of our communication methods.  Focus will continue to be our main way of communicating with members, with the website and Facebook being open and public ways of communicating with members and non members.
