ADDRESSING COMPLAINTS RE JUNE EDITION
ADDRESSING COMPLAINTS RE JUNE EDITION
The publication in June of a special, one-off printed edition of the Newsletter was intended little treat for St Elwickians but judging by the backlash it's had it has been received as anything but. Please find within a response to the multitude of questions and complaints the edition raised. I really don't think I should have to be doing this at all and frankly I've got better things to be doing with my time but the rest of The Committee insists so here we are.  Malcolm Durridge, Editor-in-Chief of the Newsletter in whichever form it goes out in and who does it thanklessly.  By Mike Wozniak  Produced by Joel Porter
