District Messenger no. 439 – New Editor’s First Issue! (and the missing issue 438…)

” ‘Any news, Mr Holmes, any news?’ he cried.” *

Our Chairman, Catherine Cooke, gallantly stepped in to provide DM no. 438, when interim editor Paul Thomas Miller was unable to do so. The previous non-appearance of that issue on the website is entirely my fault, for which I apologise. Here it is, along with the new issue, produced by our new permanent editor, Holly Turner. There will be more news and information from Holly and the DM each month from now on!
