A wiki page seems like a good start for this.

Which Matthais?

**Matthias Urlichs, who is the primary contact on the wiki ref ubuntu
hosting and getting ubuntu to host our own webforums, or support points

Currently I have access to the web page.

What would a blog be for?

**Having a hosted weblog would be a useful asset as people could post up
news comments, etc which could be read by the general public and subscribed
to via rss.  

I don't see a need for forums, the official ones are already in English.

Forums, Would be a really useful aspect particularly as we would have a
location to discuss various aspects which are directly UK related , such as
Steve and I have done here:

I'd suggest starting 2 on the wiki as well for now.

Including your surname in your From address is helpful.
