Bulletin No 20/17-18 (October 2018)

Hi reader,

Well, strictly speaking, this Bulletin isn't 'Hot off the Press'... Some of it is, but for the most part, it's 'catch up' news. 

All my fault I'm afraid, but that's how it is, unfortunately. Nonetheless, I am excited by the input by our new website contributor Phil Robson and look forward to his assistance on this.

There are still stories I need to catch up on, but at least I've managed to put these seven in the bag!

If you read these and have more to contribute to them, please email me the details and I'll amend the stories.

Best wishes,  
Chris (Membership & PR)
