Happy New Year!
January 2016
Hello!
 
Welcome to the January 2016 edition of the Transition Newton Abbot (TNA) Newsletter. Happy New Year! I hope you’ve had a good start to 2016. Speaking of new starts, I should announce that I am the new TNA Postie, and so I am taking over the role of writing this Newsletter. We also have a new email system, so this might look a bit unfamiliar- but hopefully it’s an improvement!
 
Due to these changes, please reply to this email if you have any comments or suggestions about the layout or content of our Newsletter. I'll also note that you can easily change your preferences or unsubscribe at any time.
 
We are also working on improving the other ways in which we communicate, and so we now have an active Facebook page! Please like the page for more frequent updates from TNA. We are also updating the style and content of the TNA website, so let us know if you have any feedback or ideas.

If our activites interest you, then why not get involved? Otherwise, thanks for reading!
