Welcome to newcomers (Updated Thurs 23rd April 2020)

Hi everyone! :smiley:

In a recent email update to our members about the current Coronavirus situation, we recommended joining this Community so we can stay connected and entertain each other in the coming months - and there have already been many new signups.

Firstly: welcome, everyone! :wave:

We hope you enjoy using this Community as a way to discuss wine, food and more with your fellow Wine Society members.

Just a note - this isn’t a way of contacting Member Services. If you have a problem you’d like The Wine Society to respond to, please contact Member Services directly.

I’m the Community Manager, and our Community Coordinator is @Kelly. There are also various other Society staff who frequent this Community, including @Ewan and @martin_brown.

There’s also our lovely @Mentor group: @Leah, @Herbster @Inbar @VinoVeritas @SteveSlatcher and @Jcbl .

We’re all here to help, so don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions or need a hand. :slight_smile:
