Description How to find the correct location for your Club and request that it be changed on the site maps and 'find a club'
Article scope easy-Speak information
Changing the location of your Club on the site maps and 'find a club'
Each club in the system is displayed on the 'Find a club' screen using the position defined by two numbers - the latitude and longitude of the club's normal meeting location.
This same information is also used to present a map allowing a visitor to the website to locate your club.
If the system location is not correct, or if the club moves to a new venue, the position settings for the club must be changed by the site webmaster.
For UK clubs the full postcode is often sufficiently accurate to bring a potential visitor right to your door.
A utility is provided to help with the task.
Drag the map around with your mouse and use the zoom control so that you have a close-up view of the street where the club usually meets,
Double click on the precise meeting location,
Copy the numbers at the bottom of the map (Highlight them by dragging your mouse across them and then right click and select 'copy'),
Paste these numbers into an e-mail to the webmaster giving the club name, street address (and the postcode if available)
(The webmaster is listed on the District Officers page and you may send an e-mail by clicking on the icon there)
