Get well wishes to: Sandra Parker of Bidford-on-Avon, who had the misfortune to slip in the snow and break her wrist; and to Robert Hall of Evesham, who underwent an operation immediately before Christmas and who is now convalescing after what is hoped was a successful event.

Next issue of the FSG Newsletter

The deadline for the next issue of the FSG Newsletter (April 2011) is March 13th 2011

This Newsletter survives only because of the contributions you make to it. Without them it will fail. Articles can be submitted to the undersigned via email or to the postal addresses shown above, or to any committee member.

Please contribute something, however small (or large). You would be surprised the things people enjoy reading about. A few suggestions: an historical item; a funny story; a quarter peal report; poems; puzzles; tales, events past and to come; a ringing tour, even! Send them in. They will all be welcome - and photos, too, you'll notice.

. . . . and don't worry if you think your handwriting is unintelligible. It can normally be translated. Just send it in!

The Newsletter Editor: .

If sending articles by email, please use MS Word (not the dreaded Works*) format for written articles, JPG format for photos, and scanned items in PDF or JPG formats. (We have the facility to scan photo prints if you haven't.) Please let us know ownership of photos for acknowledgement where relevant. If you have a long article, you might consider breaking it into parts.

(* If you've only got Microsoft Works, then Save As your article into Rich Text Format - ie, suffix .rtf - and send in this form.)
