  1. My wife and I live in Wales and are disappointed that there is no Dutch ‘society’ in Wales that we know of. Any thoughts on what we can do?

    Dear Bert, thank you for the question.
    There are various social media groups catering to Dutch people in the UK, post a message and await replies, then start a local local association with like-minded people.
    Regards, web-editor.
