hi Hugh,

The mailing list has been the one thing that's survived long term with
WellyLUG, so definitely keep it around and send meeting notifications to

That being said, Facebook and Twitter are very effective tools to
promote events to general audiences and Meetup whilst annoying is also a
great way to find new events - I've been using it heavily here in Sydney
to find events to attend.

The website currently is very dated, I'd personally suggest just a
simple static page detailing Wellylug and the different communications
avenues available and where to find meeting information.
