Although you may have been News-less for several weeks this time, that doesn't mean nothing has been happening. Two more pieces now are within a whisker of being completed and your emails tell us that progress is being made in spite of comments such as, "without doubt this enumerator's handwriting is the worst I have ever seen" (and now we come to validate the section, Graham, we agree with you!). We've also been delighted to welcome back Sue R after a break, ready to start work again.
On the other hand, as we are still unable to supply images (and therefore in effect to recruit new members), the team members actually able to contribute to the project are now outnumbered by those on the "inactive list" and there is less and less to report each month. We think it would be more sensible to send out the Newsletter every two months from now on rather than monthly. We will of course continue to be in touch with each of you as the need arises, and will send out a circular if there is anything urgent to tell you. In the meantime, do keep sending us details and snippets to pass on.
Best wishes to you all,
Simon and Chris
