The next FSF Southern Division Meeting will take place on Sunday 1st March at the Gallagher Stadium, Maidstone United Football Club, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 1LQ. There'll be a buffet lunch at midday; the meeting starts 12.30pm.

Members and non-members alike are welcome to Southern Division meetings (although you might as well join the FSF since it’s free and only takes two minutes).

Speakers from the Save Hitchin Top Field Campaign and Maidstone United will be there. The FSF has backed the Save Hitchin campaign for some time, while Maidstone United's rep will discuss artificial pitches like the club use, covering everything from cost of installation, to maintenance, to how the players feel about the surface.
