Submit An Article

I'm sure that many of you will have gone to somewhere like Newton Abbot for the day - why not tell us all about it by submitting an article? Articles can be submitted in any format, but standard word documents are preferred. We would also welcome some photographs as well - use your smart phone thingy (camera) !!!! Photographs should be submitted separately to the article, but don't forget to tell us where the photo is from! Please email the Editor, Andrew Richardson, ku.gro.armac.htuomylp@rotide
