“As FRYACC & the charity ‘VENUe on The Green’ are in the process of closing down, their purpose fulfilled, can I just take this moment to thank you all for your support in giving us free publicity over the past 9 years. We started from nothing and no one knew us. It was the first introductory article you printed which made residents here aware that something new was about to begin and many readers over the years have told me how much they have appreciated the update of information along the way. Your little publication has been key to our success. Thank you!”
