A fresh new look..
Good morning, Kellie here and – as promised – here is our new look newsletter!
You will notice that it's more or less the same format as our previous newsletter but there are a few more bells and whistles - polls for example and buttons (which make it easier for you to comment or share certain sections of the newsletter).
Please do keep an eye out for these new features and get involved! We would love to hear your thoughts on this latest issue - simply reply to this email to tell us what you think.
