It's worth giving it a poke.  I gave Thanet LUG a poke before  
christmas, took over the running from the previous owner (who appeared  
to have disappeared off the face of the planet!) restarted the website  
(it's crap, but there we go!) and we had a meeting a few months back  
at which 6 people turned up and we're looking to have another meeting  

I've attempted to document some of the steps I've taken in setting the  
LUG up on the blog on the website (very web 2.0!) so that may help you.
