The May mailing of SMT, Bulletin, the 2021 National Show Guide and a book of ten raffle tickets for the Grand Draw is scheduled for collection by Royal Mail from Warners Midlands in Bourne today, 14th May.  The entire mailing to UK and overseas residents will be collected at the same time.

This is our first mailing using a paper enclosure, which is more widely recyclable than the poly wrap used in the past.  The picture to the left shows our mailing being wrapped this morning and this link shows the process in action.

Mailing to UK members is First Class, so packages will start to arrive from Saturday 15th.  Some difficulties persist due to Coronavirus.  Information for the UK can be found here.

Mailing to overseas members is by Air Mail, but delivery times are still affected by the pandemic.  Further information regarding mailing to addresses outside the UK can be found here.

SMT, Bulletin and the National Show Guide will be available on our Members Only web site from 09:00 on Saturday 15th May.  If you haven’t received an invitation to activate your account on the site, or can’t find it, please email members.site@16mm.org.uk providing your surname, membership number and post code and we’ll send an invitation as soon as we can.

Thanks to editors Gareth Jones (SMT) and Dave Gordon (Bulletin and the National Show Guide) for their work.  Thanks also to all the members who contributed to what I hope will again be an enjoyable read.

Alan Regan, Chairman & Membership Secretary
