Thread: All change at RCM&E
25/05/2018 12:47:11

Thanks for the good wishes everyone, much appreciated.

Hi folks,

Just a update from me to let you know about a change at RCM&E. As some of you will already know, I’ll be stepping down from the editor’s role in a few weeks time and Graham Ashby will be returning to the chair.

As some of you may also be aware, I had a little health blip in April and I’ve taken the opportunity to recalibrate the life/work balance going forward, hence this decision. I’ll still be around of course, freelancing for the magazine but thought I’d take this opportunity to let you know.

Graham’s looking forward to his second spell as editor and, I’ll see you at some of the shows, fly-ins, the Nats, or on a hill. 😉

Best wishes

Post deleted, stay cool folks please.

I'm sorry Lorenz no. Appreciated that it's valuable to some but it's a time/resource matter I'm afraid.

If anyone has time on their hands though and would like to create one for recent years then I'm sure I could find a free subscription by way of a thank you. Just drop me a PM.

Thread: RCM&E March 2018 issue

Thanks for the feedback folks.

As Tom says, neither supplement contained brand new material so, if you're a print & digital subscriber then it's all in the digital archive including the supplements themselves. Sadly, the cost of producing and dispatching copies for overseas precludes inclusion.

Selling magazines can be a challenging business these days and occasional offers on the shelves in UK newsagents (particularly WH Smith who - needless to say - sell more copies of the magazine than any other retailer) will come along from time to time. We have to sometimes give the UK casual buyers (still the largest market) a nudge from time to time.

I can appreciate the sentiments of course and we'll keep things under review going forward.

A 'heads up' for tonight, it'll be on catch-up too afterwards I assume:

The episode of 'Walks with my Dog' is to be screened on More4 at 21.00 on Thursday 25 January. This features Victoria Pendleton walking her dogs over Ivinghoe Beacon and meeting up with ISA members Jim Wright, Sean Bannister and David Woods.

I've joined the mini blitz build camp....could be a contender for one of the mass build do's...

Agreed Ken, nice and simple yet plenty of scope for a little customisation if the urge takes.

I bought mine from FastLad Bill. I can't find it by searching their site so it might be worth giving them a call.

An eventful end to the afternoon after another tree jumped in the way. I would have helped but someone had to record the event 😉
