I am in the process of putting together the next issue of Dispatches. This issue is later than normal and will be sent out in February 2015. This is to bring it in line with new dates of issue for the year. These are as follows:
Spring edition: April ( commencing April 2016 - this years edition will be February 2015 - to include arrangements for the Summer Service in June and cover the Elmwood School and RHC events ).
Summer edition: August ( commencing August 2015 to include arrangements for FW and cover the Summer Service held in June )
Christmas edition: December ( commencing December 2015 to include a Xmas and New Year message, arrangements for Elmwood and the RHC, and cover the previous Remembrance weekend and Walcheren events, including a summary of what was agreed at the AGM at FW).
Deadline for inclusion of any article in the above editions would be the last day of the month before. By making this change everyone will know when Dispatches is due, and when articles have to be submitted for consideration as to inclusion. A letter will be sent to members in the unlikely event of any important notices that need to be brought to their attention outside of these dates.
