Dear IGG Members,
we are delighted to announce that the Group Winter Newsletter 2018 (no. 152) was posted earlier this week and will hopefully arrive to everyone’s post boxes very soon. As you will read in the Newsletter, times of change are ahead and as it happens this will be the last printed Newsletter. We are enormously indebted to David Victor for his editorial efforts and for seeing us through these changes that wil hopefully make the Group even more attractive, and perhaps a little bit more up-to-date.
However, this is not to say that we are discontinuing with the Newsletter, from now on we will be distributing it via the website. This will reduce the costs and the environmental footprint, it will be printable at home and it could be translated online – before taking this decision, we have consulted widely and taken your views into account. Of course, this is not the end of IGG printed publications, once a year, we will be publishing a full-colour journal, the first one is planned for Spring 2020.
We are grateful for our Members’ support and enhusiasm, and looking forward to a year of change – please read more in the Newsletter.
Your IGG Admin.
PS. Many of you will note that the cover illustration does not depict Pelargonium cotyledonis (as erroneously claimed on the inside cover) but Erodium cheilanthifolium – with apologies to John Beaulieu, our illustrator-in-residence, and of course to all of you, for this oversight.
