Information for members re-delays, replacement Journals etc..
Replacement and/or damaged copies of the Journal & Newsletter are now dealt with by the Membership Secretary and not the Librarian. The Membership Secretary’s address is printed inside the front cover of the Journal. Will members also note that the date shown for publication of each issue is the date that the Journal leaves the printers and not delivery date to members. Therefore please allow 14 days from the publication date before enquiring about non-receipt.
Fortunately difficulties of this nature are infrequent at present and our printers are always very keen to adhere to the agreed schedules. - Editor.
Apologies that the contents update to this section has been suspended for some time due to vacancies in the Society Admin Team/other workload.
18 August 2021 - The Editorial team has now changed with Kelvyn Hulme taking on the Editor's role from the September/October issue of 2021. The knock on impact is that the site updates held pending a new webmaster will be added over the next few days. We still need a new webmaster but the former Editor (John New) will be processing these updates.
J922 - March/April
This is at the printer. The Annual Report on 2018 is also at the printer but will probably be a separate mailing. Both are delayed due to the COVID-19 situation. (Section last updated 25th March 2019)
Issued - contents to be added here as time permits.
Earlier editions index - Listings are available on-line back to July/August 2000.
