A brief summary of the work of the group. The aim is to relaunch the group, making it all inclusive, and promoting the importance of all records being submitted each year. This can be rewarding by making the up-to-date information readily available to all in an accessible and interesting format.
Meetings are planned to introduce and assist recorders in using various electronic formats, and public events to promote the recording of moths.
