Before we started on this there was a survey which 100 people replied to,
with a majority indicating they were in favour of  a local chapter, which
does indicate some need.

I do go out mapping regularly too and improve the quality/quantity of the
data - as do most of the people currently working to create a local
chapter. It's not an either/or binary choice - it is possible to do both.
As I said if you don't agree then just ignore us and carry on mapping
