I thought it would be interesting to see where our membership is based around the world, so I am grateful to Dave Thorp for obtaining the information and turning it into a lovely map graphic.
please continue to send me any suggestions you might have for content in future issues, especially if you are based outside of the UK. Please email me on email@example.com with your ideas. I look forward to receiving them!
