'The South East Wales group was founded in December 2010. It is an informal gathering, drawing from each others' experience, knowledge and expertise. We meet in the convener's home four times a year in the afternoons. We hope we are able to fulfill and extend our own knowledge, and share our discoveries with the Society at large through the medium of De Numine.'
