Welcome to this issue of ‘RURAL POST’ 

This is an e-mail newsletter extension of the RURAL - Jersey Country Life magazine. 
The earlier issues of this newsletter can be viewed at www.ruraljersey.co.uk/rural-post 

 
It is not quite RURAL magazine, but….
… there is always quite a long gap between the quarterly issues of the magazine, so this helps, as best we can, to fill the gap in between.
