The county is split into four regions, or groups: North, North-West, West and South, and the group system provides the link between clubs and County, and vice versa. Group meetings held at club grounds throughout the county, providing a regular forum for clubs to discuss matters of common interest and share their problems and successes. Group meetings cover a range of topics and a guest speaker provides insight and expertise into key issues.
The Group Officers Committee, chaired by Andrew Smart, ensures that group meetings are held regularly and that information is shared throughout all the groups.
The Affiliated Clubs page shows which group each club is in.
