You can subscribe or re-subscribe through the store at the Society's website, http://soa.org.uk

The editor is always looking for more articles, photographs and art, so feel free to contact him through editor@soa.org.uk if you have an idea.

Note to members: for many of us, membership will expire after issue 297.  If you are not sure when your renewal is due, check the envelope containing your Slingshot. If your membership number starts with the number 297, you need to renew now.  Please try to renew in plenty of time so that you have no problems getting your copy of 298.
