Last month saw a drop in the number of people switching from paper to email: only 14 people have made the switch since the November newsletter! To those who have switched - a big Thank You! To our other readers, may we ask you to consider switching over ? We are still working towards our aim to get at least half the mailing onto electronic media but as you can see, we still have quite a long way to go, so please consider whether you could switch to email format for your newsletter and help us save the stamp! Do remember though, we want to be able to keep in touch with you in the way that suits you best. You can switch to email-only, or ask to be switched to the paper distribution by clicking on the link just below.
