HAVING PROBLEMS RECEIVING OUR WEEKLY EMAILS?  We have had enormous problems with delivering the weekly emails to many members and supporters over the past year. We are currently in the process of upgrading to using Mail Chimp which is better suited to the different internet providers and platforms being used today.  Expect to see a new format to our weekly email and better connectivity. 

Please contact me in the meantime if you have ‘dropped’ off from our mailing list or have changed your email address. Many thanks.  E: bridgetoro@gmail.com
