The February mailing of 16mm Today and Bulletin is scheduled for collection by Royal Mail from Warners Midlands in Bourne later this week.  The entire mailing to UK and overseas members will be collected at the same time. Mailing to UK members is First Class.  There are no mail delays at the time of writing.  Information for the UK can be found here.

Mailing to overseas members is by Air Mail. There are no major delays expected to non-UK mailings. Further information regarding mailing to addresses outside the UK can be found here.

SMT and Bulletin will be available on our Members Site from 09:00 on Saturday 10th February.  If you haven’t received an invitation to activate your account on the site, or can’t find it, please email providing your surname, membership number and post code and we’ll send an invitation as soon as we can.

This mailing for UK recipients is heavier than other months as it includes the show guide for our National Show, the Annual Report and Prize Draw Tickets along with SMT and Bulletin.  We are unable to send the first three to overseas members, to keep the package weight under 500 grams.  Customs arrangements arising from the UK’s exit from the EU require additional processes for overseas mailings exceeding 500 grams and due to the infrequency of such mailings, Warners don’t have these in place with Royal Mail.  The Annual Report and Show Guide will be published to our Members Site concurrent with SMT and Bulletin.  If any overseas member requires paper copies of the Show Guide and/or Annual Report, please contact me at and we’ll make arrangements to send them to you.  We’re only able to accept payment for Draw Tickets by cheque or money order in Pounds Sterling drawn on a UK financial institution, but if you’re an overseas member with access to this facility and want to participate in the draw, please contact me for tickets.

Many thanks go to the editors of the magazines- Mick Blowfield for 16mm Today and to Andrew Mawer for their work on Bulletin, with thanks also to Richard Huss for the Show Guide and to Mike Riley for the Annual Report. Thanks to George Sheppard for arranging the Draw Tickets

Thanks as well of course to all the members who contributed to the publications. Your input as always is very welcome and critical to the editors being able to present varied and interesting content.  I hope you enjoy what I’m sure will as always be an enjoyable read.

Tom Rowland, Membership Secretary
