Newsletter

Three issues per year - one of the benefits of CWAAS membership.

The Spring issue of each year arrives as part of a bumper bundle, including leaflets for new books, the AGM papers and flyers for the forthcoming year's activities - usually very early in March.

July 1st brings the publication date for the Summer issue, - or rather, as close to July 1st as the publication of Transactions allows. Both of these regular Society publications are sent in the same mailing for the sake of thrift - very important in these days of economic vigilance - and members like to know their subscriptions are being well-husbanded!. The final Autumn issue appears on November 1st

Lists of select topics, covering issues 1 to 71, compiled by James Cherry and Margaret Edwards are available, please scroll down to the bottom of this page to download these.
