News Notes No.
As announced at the last AGM we have been
kindly approached by Mr and Mrs Daniels of 28A
not only to take on the role of Editor but also
to put the Newsletter onto the Internet and
The committee were very impressed with the
proposal and have authorised its development
which has been both fast and impressive. We are
now officially launching it to all.
The site itself has a public area which is
free and available to all. The site also has a
secure Members’ area which can be accessed once
a member has been registered.
The Newsletter will now be replaced by a more
regular “News Notes” email bulletin. It will
contain automated links to all that is new on
the website as well an updated “Chairman’s
Notes”. These will be archived online.
Members without internet access will receive
a printed copy and can request specific printed
pages from the Secretary. A printed full colour
master copy of the whole site will be available
to borrow from the Editors.
Finally this is another “first” for the
Crescent which we hope will be enjoyed by all.
