The Executive wish to advise that the March newsletter will be the last available for postage as a hard copy. Moving forward, the newsletter will be emailed to all members and available from the members area of the website. You can download and print the newsletter from either source. The increasing cost of printing and postage and the large amount of content in the newsletters has made sending hard copies unfeasible.
Thank you all for your consideration and understanding.
