What happened to The UK Saintpaulia & Houseplant Society?

I keep seeing references to this society in older books and the last reference I can find is from a local village website about a branch in norfolk from 2005, is it still going? no information at all online confused:

It's the first time I hear about this society so I cannot help. Maybe some other member remembers something.

Yeah I just assumed the UK didn't have a society but It obviously did at some point... I messaged the Streptocarpus society to see if they can tell me what happened to it as I'm sure some of their members must have been members previously...

to contact the UK Streptocarpus Society is a good approach. Actually, it is much better in the UK - for example in Germany there is nothing, no Club, no Society
