Straiton Arrow goes Colour

Image of Straiton Arrow newsletterThe latest edition of the Straiton Arrow in colour is available to download or view. Although the printed version, sold locally, is still black and white the quality of reproduction has been vastly improved due to the kindness of Jim Kirk who offered to print it rather have it photocopied as usual.

We hope you enjoy reading the newsletter, the next issue will be out early next year. If you would like to comment or to contribute please drop me an email at;
