Welcome to the UK and Ireland Lakes Network
This website enables you to share information and helps to keep you informed of lake related activities.
Update your Profile
You can share more information about yourself and interest in lakes by updating your Profile - add an image and other details.
Others can see your profile information - you have options to choose what is visible.
You can use the in-built messaging system to contact other members.
Join a group
Groups are an important part of this website. They help structure contributions and filter notifications.
We've created four groups to begin with. You can join as many as you like.
Join a group by visiting its page:
Once you have joined a group, you can post short updates on the group's page and also post relevant events.
You can also make more detailed contributions in the form of "Posts" (see below).
When you join a group you will be kept informed of group activity in the form of a weekly email digest. This will help you keep informed without having to return to the website. You can alter the frequency of these email notifications in the group's "Email Options".
Advertise an Event
Add date, location and other event details.
Post a Contribution
In order to make a more detailed contribution you must be a member of a group (see above).
Each group has a "Posts" section.
You have some flexibility about what you post here. It could be brief or more detailed. You can link to other websites, upload documents, images and videos.
Member contributions appear on the Posts page.
Discuss a Topic in a Forum
If you have a burning question or useful insight, you can join an existing discussion or start a topic of your own.
Look at the top right of the website. You will see your name in the black bar. If you hover over that you will see useful links to key sections.
You can get to your profile page by clicking on your name, wherever it appears. This can be a good starting place.
The Activity page lists recent activity across the site. It's good for getting an overview, but you will probably need to look elsewhere for more specific
REMEMBER: Groups are where you have some freedom to share different types of information.
