A wiki page seems like a good start for this.

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:
> (1) co-ordinating our own work
> (2) providing local support contacts and info on availaility of

> I suggest that (1) could remain on the UKTeam's wiki pages (
> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeams) to remain integrated with the
> Ubuntu community at large, and (2) could be on ubuntu-uk.org to
> provide local support free from organisational clutter and geek-speak.
I'd suggest starting 2 on the wiki as well for now.

Including your surname in your From address is helpful.
