  As a generalisation, groupings based on Diocesan lines tend to be 
  called Guilds and those on counties Associations. Districts tend to be 
  based around a major town and cover only part of a county, some being 
  called a "Society". Societies tend to be, but are not exclusively, 
  (e.g. Doncaster and District Society) neither based on either church or 
  county boundaries.
