I'm sure many of the old local branches are still going, even if they aren't part of the EFDSS. Suffolk Folk, for example, was an EFDSS local branch but as an autonomous body it's still going strong, organising and supporting events, running workshops, subsidising folk performers in schools and publishing the local folk magazine Mardles. We're still affiliated to the EFDSS because it's a cost-effective way of getting public liability insurance for the events we run.
