Notes for Contributors

Articles and pictures for the magazine are always welcome. The deadline for input is the 14th of the month before the edition. Articles for forthcoming events should be included about a month or six weeks ahead, but more notice can be given in the Future Diary dates.

Please email articles and pictures to David Preston at  If they are not acknowledged, please phone (01980 629689), because occasionally emails get lost. Most formats can be handled. Hand-written material should be sent to Michael Wheeler or David Preston.

To get the best results, pictures should be sharp and as large as possible. Colour pictures will be converted to black & white because unfortunately we cannot afford to print colour.
