Website of British Mensa South East England Region

Welcome to the website of the South East England region of Mensa, the high I.Q. society, in the British Isles.

SEMensa covers a wide area: the south east region of England, from the New Forest in the west to the tip of Kent in the east, and from the M4 corridor and the southern edge of the London Mensa region in the north to the English Channel coast (see About).
You can read about activities and events in the region in the monthly regional newsletter “SEMantics”.

This website is not protected by a login for members, so it does not itself give details of Mensa officers or events, although it does outline events listed for this month and next month.
Full details of events are given in the Mensa magazine What’s On pages, and there is (currently) a summary of places, times and organizer members for each event on page 6 of SEMantics each month.

This website does give links to pages on other Mensa websites including one for the page where, after logging in as a member, you can see information about forthcoming events. (See Links).


From 20th July 2017, the South East region webmaster to contact with any questions about the content of this website was the SEMantics Editor (as shown on page 7 of an issue). From 30 April 2018, the South East region webmaster was again the SEMantics Editor because a new volunteer kindly took over both positions (this is the retiring Editor and webmaster who is still writing this in June 2018).

However it has been proposed that the S E region refer visitors to the British Mensa website region pages, so for the present (June 2018) the other domain name takes you there; you have to log in as a member to see the regional news pages. This is to show everybody what the S E region website would be if the proposal being considered in late June 2018 is implemented: the website you are looking at would cease to exist, so requiring no regional webmaster to work on it (they could just look after the Facebook group) and the national website logged-in area for S E would be all you would have.

For now, the domain will continue to bring you here.

Get in touch with our Regional Officer if you have views on this topic or if you would like to volunteer as webmaster or any other vacant role.
