    NEWSLETTER DISTRIBUTION

    As most of you will know the club has a website (www.bmpsnwales.org.uk) on which the quarterly newsletter is published. As most people nowadays have access to the internet it is proposed that those willing to do so should read the newsletter at this location. At present around 60 newsletters are sent out in hard copy to those members unable to attend club meetings, and this represents a considerable annual drain on the club funds in materials and postage costs (not to mention manhours!). Anyone without access to the 'web' or who, for whatever reason, wishes to continue receiving the newsletter in hard copy via the postal service, is requested to make their wished known to the Club Secretary (01745 823904) or the Membership Secretary (01407 741974) at their earliest convenience. Failure to do so may result in you not receiving future issues. Thank you for your cooperation.
