RSE Social Media Policy & New WhatsApp ‘Info Only’ Group

Further to comments made at the AGM, the RSE Committee has been working hard on producing a Social Media Moderation Policy and additional WhatsApp group to communicate information relating to the club.

The policy can be found on the ‘Join’ page of the RSE website (https://www.runningsomewhereelse.com/join-in/)

We do not want to lose the support and fun you each contribute within the current WhatsApp group chat but feel that important messages can be lost and therefore will be setting up and additional ‘INFO ONLY’ group whereby important and relevant information will be posted by Committee Members only. If you opted in to WhatsApp on your membership form you will be added to this group shortly.

Any questions please feel free to speak to a member of the Committee.
