Summary of UK campaign/communalist groups, events & locations + how to keep them updated.

Looking for food not bombs groups in the UK I found the information on the umbrella organisations website outdated, so I checked all the individual chapters pages and created an updated article.

So in cases where there’s no volunteer web developer on hand I’ll to try to be a point of contact for keeping information updated.

As well as creating tables, maps and colanders where none existed before hand in easily viewable share links, then sending them to the campaign web developer to host on their site.

Many sites do already have maps for things happening near you, as well as an easy process for how to update them, so check them out below and help out with information also where you can.

As well you can comment below any important ones I’ve missed or suggestions on formatting.
