A small group of us have recently set up a pen club in the south of England for those not able/willing to make it in to London for the one there.  It meets on the 3rd Saturday each month and presently is alternating between Fleet and Petersfield (though if numbers at Petersfield stay minimal we may make it just Fleet or look for another alternate).

Details can be found on FaceBook - the group is "UK South Fountain Pen Club Meet Up" with https://www.facebook...thfountainpens/ being the URL.  Note it is a closed group so you need to search for it then apply for access (else anyone can see and post and potentially troll).

 

Note this is not intended to replace the London Club as we hope many people will attend both :)

Yeah - also hard to cover such a large area as I know one person on here from Sevenoaks, and there's a few in East Anglia.

If I could only find the riches to give up work I'd be a lot freer to travel to pen club meetings

Oh, and buy more pens .....

Although closer than London it is still a bit far for me. Pity, it would have been great. 

 

All the best with it!

Due to a lack of confirmed attendees, this month's meet (Saturday 20th) has been moved to The Heron on the Lake at Fleet. Hampshire.  Will be ~12:00-15:00 and weather wise I suspect we'll now be inside.
