Falkland Society: Newsletters

 We've been sending monthly mailings to our members and supporters by MailChimp since December 2018. At first these contained just a note of the next meeting, but from April 2020 onwards, wtih meetings supended because of coronavirus, we started including labelling the mailings as Newsletters, and including additional articles of interest. If you missed a mailing, or would like to refresh your memory as to what it said, click on the link below (they are PDF files, and may be quite large).

Note: having downloaded a Newsletter, we suggest you click the "view this email in your browser" link at the top the page, to get a smoother display (some earlier mailings may not have this feature).

And to make sure you receive future Newsletters, just sign up on our 'Contact' page.
