    It is regretted that, apart from Mini Display adverts, hand-written material, unless extremely short, can no longer be accepted without prior arrangement. If type-written material is submitted, please follow the above-mentioned house style as far as possible and:
  • Please ensure the ribbon does not need replacement and type neatly on A4 paper using one side only.
  • Leave a one inch margin top, bottom, left and right.
  • Use one-and-a-half or double spacing.
  • No hand-written corrections or changes.
