The objectives of the Solentmet Support Group are to provide a series of free-to-the-public websites that display real-time weather reports gathered from stations suitably located in the general Solent area.

The members of the group are local volunteers with a common interest in achieving the group's objectives and who have experience in the disciplines needed.

The group manages contributions in cash and facilities and, where appropriate, enters into agreements with local bodies for the provision of services to meet its objectives.
