A Springtime Refresh for the Newsletter

Did you know that there are crosuses that emerge every spring at Bedford Hall?  Apparently they’ve been there since the year 800 and the Romans once used them to make saffron. Well, just as those flowers begin anew each spring, the Croydon Vision newsletter is also enjoying a fresh new look, so we’d love to know what you think…

What’s changing?
We realised that our newsletter has evolved into something a bit more like a magazine, so we’re embracing that and adding a few more articles and bits of fun.

What’s staying the same?
The quiz is always a firm favourite, so you’ll now find that alongside things like G’s joke of the month.  Don’t worry Isa’s much beloved menus are still at the back and you’ll find a clear contents section at the beginning to help you work out what’s inside.

What else should you look for? 
There’s a section about what’s going on at Bedford Hall, a spotlight on one of our volunteers, a chat with a member and updates from the staff. 

So, what do you think?
We’re nothing without our members, so your feedback is really important to us. To let us know what you like and dislike about your Croydon Vision Newsletters – and what you’d love to see in future editions – we’ve set up a little questionnaire.

You can take a look at that here: https://rb.gy/uhv9th

Volunteers will also be calling during March to collect your thoughts. We look forward to hearing them and building you a newsletter – or a magazine – that you look forward to reading each month!
