  Dear Bob, Thank you for writing to Small       1st June .............. Maidenhead Branch
  Printer and endorsing Kate Edwards, whom       Paul Hatcher, Woodley
  I have also mentioned in my editorial.
  I believe that all members of the BPS have              attention
  printing experiences and bits of knowledge
  that would be of much interest to others,                  new members
  but feel that they may not be ‘revolution-
  ary’, and so do not commit to paper.               If you are new to the Society and want to find out
                                                     about your local Branch, or if you want to start up

  ‘Hints and Tips’ recently; so all of you out           a new Branch in your area, please contact:
  there please why not take the plunge and
  write in with your ‘Hint' or ‘Tip’.                 Bob Edwards Tel: 01252 615439 or
