DIARY ADVERTISEMENT RENEWALS
The new Diary Advertising Manager has emailed all existing advertisers requesting confirmation that they wish their advertisement to continue in the October to March issues of the Diary. As the Diary Manager email address has changed, there is a risk that some ISPs may have categorised the email as spam. If you have not received the email, or indeed, received it and not yet responded please email Willie Allan at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible as the deadline for advertising copy for the October Diary is 14th September and advertisement space is in high demand
An online edited version of the email is reproduced below:

Diary Advertising Manager
Recently the online Diary on our website has started to include all the adverts in the PDF file, at no extra cost to yourself. This can show your advert in colour. If you would like to provide YOUR CURRENT ADVERT WITH NO CHANGES to me in colour for the online version, please do so by email. If you would like a completely new advert put in the printed and online version, send me the colour version and £15 by bank transfer; the colour version will go into the online Diary, and a black and white version will appear in the printed version.
