INFORMATION ON THE BRANCH
Ashford Branch Web Site address:
(Founder Editor - Maggie Woodroffe)
'Down Under' the Australian Newsletter, was founded in August
2004. Its purpose is to provide 'local' communication for
all members in Australia which I hope will serve to bring
them closer together.
All Australian paid-up members receive a copy three times
a year in April, August and December and this is funded
by the Society.
Contributions and articles, no matter how small, from
all members worldwide, are welcome and can be sent by
snail mail to me at 19 First St., North Moonta, South
Australia 5558 or by email to: email@example.com
As Australian Agent as well as Editor of 'Down-Under',
I hope that I can be of assistance in general enquiries
from members over here. Please feel free to email, write,
or ring me on 08 8556 4302 (evenings for preference) if
there is anything I might be able to help you with.
