Onward. But before we get into the issue, a few words about subscriptions. It costs a few pounds, but a subscription is really the neatest way to get your magazine every month. We have recently overhauled our mailing system, so there should be fewer hiccups and greater speed in getting the magazine to you. It helps us - an awful lot . And i t could soon save you money. We have pegged the cover price at the same rate for a long t ime but with the increased cost of paper, printing and office tea, it may have to rise very soon. A sub taken out now makes sense. And we have a new subs form too. Cool!
