Welcome to SWOP Forum

SWOP is celebrating its 25th birthday so, in the run up to the 25th Anniversary AGM, members were asked to take a photo from their desk, the window of their workplace, or even a shelfie and to post it here on the website, on Twitter or on our Knowledge Hub pages.  The winner was decided with a prize draw at our AGM

Some of the pictures, and more about our  celebrations, can be viewed here
