I'm near Witney and have been trading options for some 15 years. We have a monthly Options group meeting that meets at Sudbury Golf Club and several share a car from Wheatley to travel there if you are interested.
There are 4, 3 for share traders and one for options traders, that people living around Oxford go to. All are monthly meetings, 3 are in afternoons and one, for mainly share traders, is on Tuesday evening. Of the afternoon meetings one is for VectorVest users, the other 2 are in Sudbury, near Hanger Lane on the A40 and we generally share a car. Let me have a brief CV of your investing experience and I'll let you know if any have vacancies.
