  (this is going to take a little time to finish) Some of the years do not have any content yet, as I probably do not have any magazines for that year yet or I just haven't got around to it yet. 

I shall first concentrate on putting up some representative snippets from each year that has been published, then gradually fill in the detail

Nearly every year has some content.

I would appreciate it if you have any content or comment for any year please email me ( j.weedy at iln.org.uk)

:- please note... I have used an "at" instead of "@" trying to stop spammer bots harvesting my email address , so please make sure you type it as an email address into your email program for free inclusion.

Eventually all the years will be split down to Months and then Weeks (see 1909)

Finally, if you have any old magazines or bound volumes you want to unload please let me know.
