A group for any person with a connection or a love of the Maltese Islands
The group covers the whole of the south west from Lands end to Gloucester, parts of South Wales and over as far as Southampton. We try to spread the events around if we can, which can be hard to do at times. So if anyone would like to become involved they would be made welcome.
Unlike many ethnic groups who reside in the UK and stay in close knit communities, the Maltese seem to blend in to the British background and can be very hard to find. They can also go for years without seeing another Maltese person or even speak their native language.. The group formed so that contact could be maintained and friendships formed. An example of this was at our event in April. A couple met who had not seen each other in 25 years, when I see things like that I feel I have done my job well.
