Newsletter Contributions
Items ( Copy in Word format or JPEG photographs please) for future editions will be very welcome.
Please outline your plan and submit (preferably by email) to Richard Grundy first
as several good articles are held over and others rejected through a lack of space.

Tristan da Cunha Photograph Portfolio
A selected portfolio of good quality digital photographs are available to publishers to raise money for the Tristan da Cunha Island community. Contact Richard Grundy on for details.
Islanders Abroad
It is hoped that the Newsletter will be an important vehicle to keep Tristan Islanders throughout the world in touch with each other. Photographs and brief personal details are invited for the regular Islanders' Abroad feature. Obviously the Association hopes Islanders will want to join the Association and take part in the expanding programme organised by the committee.
