Fantastic Festive Wishes

It’s Christmas and we had considered publishing a bumper Christmas Annual to celebrate the year past and look forward to the year to come. However, when we started writing it we became too depressed and decided to discontinue as we didn’t want to spoil anyone’s festive break.

We’ll come back in the new year with a review and look ahead so if you wish to publish anything (editorial being the preserve of the branch officials), comment on anything or make suggestions please send these to the branch secretary (email address below). A brief newsletter is also available below if you wish.

In the meantime have a great holiday. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all @unitececbranch
reps.
